Brainstorm Toys RC Illuminated Moon
Next is the Brainstorm Toys RC Illuminated Moon, which looks amazing at night in the kids' room as well like the 2 in 1 Globe - Earth & Constellations. And with the remote control, you can hang the moon up high, and still have full control over when to turn it off or slowing down the transitions.
The RC Illuminated Moon (RRP £30.00, suitable for 6+) can be hung on the wall either from the top or bottom, so if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, this moon is applicable to you too! Or if you just want to see how the moon looks like on the other side of Earth, you can simply turn it upside down.
It takes 4 x AA batteries, and the remote takes 2 x AAA batteries. You can either make the transition happen manually by clicking on the top button on the remote for each change, or the bottom button for it to automatically happen (changes approximately every 5 seconds). The small button will turn the moon to sleep mode, so you don't have to reach to the moon (pun intended) to switch it off (power switch is on the side of the moon).
And now, The Mooonnn!!
This is a bit closer to what we actually saw in the kids room. It is still really good! And we love watching it change! The booklet included teaches the kids more about the moon and each transition too, and the kids were fascinated by it!
Technically I shouldn't show you this picture, which is this bright because of my camera's settings. But doesn't it look amazing, and realistic?! It reminds me of pictures of the moon in the desert, although this one sits right on the sand...
I think this RC Illuminated moon will be perfect in a astrology themed room as a night light. You can keep it in your favourite transition, and change it to give the room more or less light too!
Abby is a big fan of Brainstorm Toys' astrology range, and receiving the 2 in 1 globe and illuminated moon has really made her day. I doubt what we are going to get her for Christmas (what should we get her for Christmas now?!) will give the same effect!
