This is WAY to cool! We actually had a much smaller version that we had got from walmart. We thought that was pretty neat, until i recieved this product! WOW! i love love love it! I plugged it in our kitkcen first with my three year old son just to check it out. I dont know who was more excited, haha. It really shines, and projects a twinkle everywhere we were looking. I went ahead and put it on our patio and i open the blinds slighty so that we can even see a little sparkle coming through into the house. Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas in this household, Probably my favorite decoration yet. The cord is super long, making it easy to plug in and still move to wear its needed. A holiday season MUST BUY!
