Thank you so much for including lights and sounds together in one piece. Usually, what happens is that cool lights will be seen or nice sound will be heard, but in this price range, having both and having them work effectively is almost impossible to find. This device includes both, and they both work quite effectively. Usually that take so much money, but in this device they both work beautifully. I recommend this one to anyone who wants both together, but I particularly recommend it to those with young children or even kids up to the high school age. It will fit in in any room and will be cool with any gift recipient so with this one you can't go wrong. Good luck with yours!
