Promising review: "This little moon is amazing! My 4-year-old is obsessed with anything space so this was a no-brainer. She loves that it changes colors and that it comes with a remote. She loves that she can pick a new color every night and sometimes we just let it cycle through the colors on its own, which is so soothing. Charging is very simple too and doesn't take very long to charge either." —szero4

Promising review: "Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She's forever asking, 'what should I draw?' I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we've tried many other books to inspire her that didn't. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! ;) Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my book!" —Fascinated viewer
