I bought this for my new son's nursery and I couldn't be more pleased. He is currently 8 weeks old and follows the little rainbow light spots around the room. They calm him when he is fussy and also help him go down for a nap. The light even comes out into our living room when his door is open and it makes me happy instantly. My husband even says that it is the best purchase we have made for him. I'd recommend getting one for yourself and also get a few for gifts. This is the first review I have ever written online but felt that if I could influence someone getting one I should. Even if you don't have kids, it would add a special something to any house. Money well spent!

Remembering "Pollyanna" I was looking forward to rainbows in my sun room. Unfortunately, I was so disappointed that the wheels went around, but the crystals did not turn. There is probably a disconnect somewhere in the mechanism. I still want to see this work as described by some of the reviews, so I have gone on and ordered another one. I hope I can see what others have seen with the next one. I am out $40, but still hoping to see the rainbows.

    Bought this as a decoration to entertain my grandson, 5 months old at the time. Son and Daughter in law set it up and my grandson loved it and just became fixated on its colors.
    In May it just Stopped turning. Gear was out of place.

        Comments about Double Rainbowmaker:

        The only instruction in English were on the clear plastic film that it came in and you had to hold a white sheet of paper in back of the package to read the instructions.

        One of the crystals wasn't even attached to the chain and I had to pry it open to attach the crystal.

          I've had several of these devices over the years and when they work, they're wonderful. This one doesn't. Not the first time I've gotten a dud from this manufacturer.

            This is the second of these wonderful devices that I have bought, both for my grandchildren. The kids and their parents really enjoy the rainbows. Children learn so much about solar energy and how it works. This rainbow maker is a winner!

            Comments about Double Rainbowmaker:

            Unit would not operate at all out of the box, even in direct sunlight, but we were able to finally get it to work by carefully turning the crystals by hand several times. Once we finally got it started it ran all afternoon until the sun was no longer in a direct position. It does need bright light to operate. Although mostly of plastic it is delicate, and rough, careless or frequent handling will almost certainly result in eventual damage or breakage, especially at the hinges that hold the solar panel.

                I have owned a Rainbow Maker for years. My grand daughters love it and so do I. It must have direct sunlight on the solar panel to operate. It is easy to install and it stays in place. Occasionally I need to give it a gentle twist to get it started but then it works just fine. I really enjoy it.

                    I have purchased 3 of these so far. Am ordering 2 more today. Have 2 in my own home, and they are WONDERFUL. I live in the U.P. Of Michigan, so the sun does not get high enough in the sky for these to work in the mos. of October thru February . In the 7 mos. that they can get enough direct sun, they are AMAZING, and soooo cheerfull!! I could not do without them now:)-- my 7 month old grand baby loves them too. They amaze all who experience the beauty they display - living mini rainbows racing around every wall and ceiling! Pure joy to experience!! - great gifts .
