The ElecStars ES-012 is an excellent budget version. Though it does come up short in a couple of categories, the modest price point more than makes up for these shortcomings. Use this device to turn a nursery room into a place full of awe and wonder.

Bozhihong Star Projector

Fantastic Choice

You can find many different star projectors in all price ranges, but if you look for something special, something that will let you create a planetarium atmosphere in your own home, the Bozhihon Star Projector with LED Nebula Cloud will pique your interest.

Right off the bat, this star light projector is really astonishing. Starting from how it looks and ending with what it actually does, everything in it is as close to perfection as possible.

Speaking of the former, the unit doesn't look like a typical projector. It sports a very modern round-shaped design reminiscent of that you'd find in Apple's range of products so it will seamlessly blend into any interior.

With regards to the operation, the unit does a fantastic job too. In fact, it's a far cry from most other galaxy projectors the market is flooded with. Able to create stars and cloud effect which can be activated separately or together over a whopping 100 square metres, the Bozhihon Star Projector works real magic that not only kids but also adults will be able to appreciate.

Overall, you get a vast choice of settings to play with, including 16 fantastic colour modes and 4 projection angles that can produce a variety of beautiful visual effects, so it will be possible to build just about any mood or ambience the situation calls for, with nothing but a quick twist of the hand. The remote control comes included.

All told, the Bozhihon Star Projector with LED Nebula Cloud is surely one of the best galaxy projectors available out there. So, if you're looking for a star light projector to elevate your parties or want to give something special to your kid, it can be exactly what you need. Though quite expensive compared to its rivals, given its lighting coverage, the number of built-in settings, and high quality, it's worth the money!

UOUNE (PAIPU-XKD-1)

Flash With Music

This is another light projector that can be used as a nightlight. You can use it for kids to help them fall asleep better or for yourself if you want to create a romantic ambience. This projector offers 10 colour modes and can create a starry sky or ocean wave effect, both of which look simply amazing. What's more, this light projector is fitted with a sound-activated design, which means it can not only display mesmerising visuals but also play music or even your voice, thus, enabling you to create the exact party mood you want.

The UOUNE (PAIPU-XKD-1) even looks different compared to other projectors. In fact, if you didn't know, you'd think it's a Bluetooth speaker in front of you, a bit futuristic, stylish and cool. Of course, it won't produce those shaking beats you'd get from premium portable speakers, but the quality of sound is darn close to it.

What's great about this projector is that it has a Bluetooth module. Thus, you can connect it to your smartphone, card reader, or US flash drive and thrill your soul by playing both your favourite tunes and visuals. The effect will be amplified if you set it to rotate and customise the brightness.

The built-in automatic timer is available here, too, so you can use this projector on many different occasions and do not worry about having to turn it off. It will switch off automatically after 1 hour or 2 hours of use.

In the end, if you're looking for a unique gift idea for your friends or children, be sure the UOUNE (PAIPU-XKD-1) with Bluetooth will not leave them disappointed. In fact, this romantic night light projector with music has all the potential to become the centrepiece of any home.

Aisuo Rechargeable

In all Chaos There is a Cosmos

This model from Aisuo is more or less everything people have come to expect from and look for in starlight projectors. Supplied with a nice little remote, the product allows you to control it from a convenient distance. Plus, its transmission radius is fairly wide, so you won't have to point it directly at the projector. The warm light function can be used to help your little one fall asleep at night. For entertainment purposes, there are the "change colour" and "rotating" functions with their self-explanatory features.

What we really like about this product are the power source options. You can use the USB cable and any device with a USB port as a constant source of power. Or you charge it up, plug it off, and rely on the built-in 1200 mAh rechargeable battery to deliver hours of entertainment in a remote manner. You won't have to waste money on batteries and, considering that the rechargeable one usually lasts for almost 15 hours, you'll be able to move the projector around the house without having to recharge it every couple of hours.

That being said, the white housing gets easily soiled, so you'll likely have to wipe it on a frequent basis, a bit of a shame but nothing to complain too much about either.

In short, this home planetarium from Aisuo is a portable device that will allow you to set up a starry sky in any part of your home. Among other things, it is great for people who have children equally interested and excited about the cosmos sleeping in separate bedrooms.

SCOPOW 1B201B06H8

Moving Starry Sky Show

With starlight projectors, it is all about the execution. More specifically, the quality of the pattern(s). Even more specifically, the number of shapes and objects, the way they are arranged, the way they move, the overall imagery they portray.

The people behind SCOPOW 1B201B06H8 understand that. Despite the lazy name, this is an inventive product through and through. The black orb, with its 360-degree rotation setup, creates the most fantastic and literally moving starry sky show. It gives you a full night sky projection of stars on ceilings and walls of your choosing.

From the functionality standpoint, the model incorporates 4 settings. The first one allows you to set a timer. The second lets you access the rotary switch. The third one can be used to choose the colour of the stars. The last one, dubbed "warm night", produces less of a show and more of a nice calming light that creates a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.

As far as the power source options are concerned, you can choose between 4 AAA batteries or USB. Though the latter would be an obvious and more logical choice more often than not, the USB cable that comes with the model is relatively short, so you'll have to either replace it or make sure the device with the USB port can be placed near the projector.

To put it differently, we would recommend the SCOPOW 1B201B06H8 starlight projector for people with picky kids, the kind of kids who would never settle for a subpar product with lazily put patterns. More than anything else, this is a product that could spark your kid's interest in astronomy.

ElecStars ES-012

Lights up the Room

ElecStars ES-012 is the most basic product here. Now, we are not saying that it is bad. Far from it, really. Just that there really isn't anything about it that makes the product stand out from the starlight projector crowd. Well, except for the price. Right now, it goes for 8 quid, a really attractive price for such a functional, fun, and lovely device.

That being said, there are things that come with the conservative price point. For one, the model doesn't include a timer function, not a big deal but it is a nice thing to have at your disposal nonetheless. Its lightning coverage area limited to 16 square metres is a little unfortunate though. A coverage area like that makes the model perfectly suitable for nursery rooms but not that great for older kids and larger premises.

On the bright side, the product comes with a detachable dome, so you can use it as a night lamp and as a starlight projector. With 11 x 11 x 14 centimetres in overall dimensions, it doesn't take up a whole lot of space. The model's 3 settings will allow you to turn the device into a night lamp, switch the colours from a monochrome light to a colourful light overlay, and turn the rotation on or off.

In other words, ElecStars ES-012 is an excellent budget version. Though it does come up short in a couple of categories, the modest price point more than makes up for these shortcomings. Use this device to turn a nursery room into a place full of awe and wonder.

What Is a Star Light Projector?

It doesn't matter what the science says, the stars are magic. Their visual appeal is almost magnetic, there isn't a kid nor an adult (provided he hasn't lost his sense of joy and wonder) that isn't fascinated by them, regardless of their knowledge on the subject. Of course, the stars are always there but they aren't always visible to the naked eye. When they aren't, a starlight projector will have to do. In case the name itself isn't enough of a giveaway, a projector like that is a device that, using a combination of lasers, regular lights, and different reflections, lights up the walls, the ceiling, and the floor with the most remarkable imagery.

Different models produce different patterns, shapes, and objects but the end goal is the same: create a colourful presentation able to help kids fall asleep, entertain them, and, fingers crossed, even spark an interest in the universe, astronomy, and cosmos in general and our galaxy, solar system, different constellations, the moon, and all sorts of stars and planets in particular.

The only things kids like more than the universe and stars are dinosaurs and transformers, so you might want to consider our reviews of those as well while you're at it.
