PRODUCT: Vicks SweetDreams Cool Mist Humidifier with Projector (www.vickshumidifiers.com)Vicks SweetDreams Humidifier

DESCRIPTION: A 2-in-1 cool mist humidifier with 3.8L tank and image projection system with three themes. Compatible with Vicks VapoPads scented pads. Includes power lead and 1 x menthol pad. Instruction manual included. Suitable for use with children aged three months upwards.

GOOD POINTS: As we move into the winter season, there is the inevitable onset of colds and flu, and this is where the new Vicks SweetDreams Humidifier becomes a must-have for all households with young children.

Vicks have coupled a humidifier with a Vicks release system which keeps the air moist but also releases gentle fragrances into the room, helping young children to breathe more easily at night.

For those not aware of the benefits of a humidifier, they can actively reduce flu viruses in the air and on surfaces and are very good at reducing symptoms of coughs and colds.

As far as scents go, there are two available: One is recommended for children aged 3 months and above (rosemary and lavender), whereas the more traditional and familiar smelling menthol pads are recommended for children aged 3 years and above.

If that wasn't enough, they've also built in a projector with three fun schemes - starry night, sea and safari - which should help take children's minds off their symptoms, and can actually be used independently of the humidifier.

The SweetDreams Cool Mist Humidifier is quick to assemble and can hold up to 3.8L of water, allowing it to run for up to 24 hours. The tank has a large opening to facilitate filling and cleaning, and has two carry handles for easy transportation. The walls of the tank are translucent so water levels can easily be checked. There is a slot for the addition of the scent pads (two can be inserted at a time if required), and the level of humidity and intensity of the scent can be controlled via a simple dial on the front of the unit.

The humidifier is big enough to fill areas of up to 35 square metres, so is suitable for even the biggest of bedrooms. Its quiet operation also means that it won't disturb your child's sleep. In addition, it is worth noting that the ultrasonic technology used in the production of this humidifier results is cool (rather than hot) fine mist that is released into the air, making it safer to use around young children.

Each of the projection themes is operated manually via a simple lever on the lid of the humidifier, and each has three brilliantly detailed rotating images within the theme for variation.

This is a really well designed product from Vicks which has some great features, and temporarily relieves the symptoms associated with coughs and colds, which in turn promotes a more peaceful nights sleep for both parent and child.

BAD POINTS: As with any water unit, the unit will more than likely need to be descaled in areas of hard water, although a demineralisation cartridge can be purchased separately which is installed into the base of the unit. The product is quite pricey, with the extra cost of VapoPads on top.

PRICE: £69.99 for humidifier; £6.99 for pack of 7 x VapoPads;
