I love this!
By Donna Crabtree
I love Gideon products! They make some of the best household products! I am always on the lookout for products that can help out my family in one way or another. I have found that Gideon products are well made, sturdy, and durable. I find that when I buy a product that Gideon makes, it is money well spent.
This is one of the nicest night lights that I have used with my children, and for myself. When I had a chance to review the DreamWave Soothing Ocean Wave projector light from Gideon, I was excited. My kids are not babies anymore, but they do use a nightlight. My oldest daughter loves the beach, so this was a great night light to get her. It has three simple settings, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to use. The first switch is for a soft nightlight. The second switch allows you to have a multitude of colored lights, in the third switch allows you to choose whether you want the globe to move or stay stationary. This is great, because she can change it up at her will. The night light runs by plugging it in. It has a very quiet motor, so you do not hear it at all. It is hard to see from the pictures, but believe me, the projected pattern is beautiful. My daughter fell asleep and slept through the night for the first time in a long while. It was on low when I checked in her in her room. When she was almost asleep, I put it on mode one. She was able to get up at night and not be scared. It was great because we did not have to have the hall light on. The hallway light shined in our room, as well as the babies' room. She now feels better because she can get up by herself without waking the whole house up. The speakers put out a quality sound, not distorted at all. It comes with a USB cord, so you can plug it into a device to play music.
I have also discovered the soothing ocean waves sounds as well. I am a mom of a very busy family as well as a small business owner. There are nights that I do not think that I could even get to sleep because of all the worries and stress from the day. All you have to do is put this on and lay back and relax. Between the soft lights and the ocean noise, it creates a calming atmosphere. It is also great for a white noise sound as well. Since we live in a farm-like community, there is always some kind of noise at night. This DreamWave Soothing Ocean Wave projector helps to leave he ate all that background noise for a good night's sleep. I highly recommend this DreamWave Soothing Ocean Wave night light to anyone that has a child that would benefit from using a nightlight, or for yourself or someone that can benefit from a relaxing, calm environment. It doesn't have to be a baby to use this. I would even recommend this for a teenager's room that just likes to stay up all night,

My son tells me that it smells really bad in his room so I went in to investigate ...
By Brad A
The projector started showing signs of dying last week when my kids told me that the colors werent bright anymore. I shrugged it off to cheap China toys. Fast forward to this week. My son tells me that it smells really bad in his room so I went in to investigate and immediately realized it was something electrical burning. I narrowed it down the the projector. It was melting from the inside!! I was shocked but extremely relieved that it was caught while we were awake in the house. Had it continued to run, it would have caught fire on my sons dresser and quickly caught the surrounding things on fire! Not happy right now with this product. It has been used a night light since Christmas, about 2 months now and its already failed and almost burnt my house down with my family inside!!! Be careful with this unit folks.

So close to perfect!
I'd probably give this item 3 stars but the light displays are so stunningly beautiful, I couldn't go lower than 4. The reason I can't give it a 5 is because it only worked correctly for a month. Granted, I use it a lot. My newborn and toddler cosleep with me and the lights + music do the trick to get them calm and fast asleep, every time! After a month, only the lights worked. The adapter stopped working and I couldn't turn it on without batteries. It's okay though, the batteries last about 10 days and we use it 3+ hours a day.
