Was so excited to get this clock for my six year old son. It is cute and it thrills him. It has a great time projection onto the ceiling. I tried to position the clock beside his bed and the light part which has the planets and time only bends one way and that makes the time inverted and the planets blurred. We placed it across the room and it works fine. We use it as a night light/clock which is pretty "COOL" to him.
