This is so much better than a different one that I had bought before that was much more expensive, this one you can actually make out the stars and the moon and you can even turn it for each different month, January through December! Any child who is fascinated with space or stars will love this! It has two different buttons on it, which was a little confusing at first, but it didn't take not even a minute to figure everything out. It doesn't play any music, but I think that makes it even better, it's like watching that stars outside, just without the crickets and the misquitos lol. I can't wait to give it to my son for Christmas! He is going to love it!
