Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Love it..but elephant better
The cool mist is so much better for my kids (3 and 1) than hot steam. It doesn't make the room hot and allows them to sleep comfortably. The design of this steamer makes it look "appropriate" in their rooms and they love it. It's easy to fill, easy to use and cleans easily. You do need to keep a towel underneath it because by morning the carpet is damp.
This is more expensive than what I had purchased in the past at pharmacies, etc. but well worth it!
I bought the elephant for my son and the penguin for my daughter. I like the elephant better because it sends the steam up higher in the air and less on the carpet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MSINCT a great asset
output is great and a full tank at approx. 1/2 "speed" runs for 24 hours! Like the penguin look and how the vapor goes out of his beak! (I bought an owl one and it works well too but I don't like how the vapor goes out of the top of the machine)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 123456 Not a long lasting product.
I purchased mine a little over a year ago. It worked pretty good while it lasted. I use mine in the winter months due to static. It lasted a little over a year. The fan failed in mine. I would recommend stepping up to a high performance model if that is what you intend to use it for. If your use is for one room on occasion i'm sure it will work fine.

This humidifier hold a gallon of water. Since I have a reverse osmosis system I use purified water in it. My "Penguin" sits in a bedroom that is 15' X 12'. Two human adults and one canine use the room. We live in the desert southwest USA. The summer humidity runs in the 3 to 5 % range. We have been using the humidifier with great success. No cardboard mouth and no bad taste of stickiness upon arising. Also, our eyes aren't getting dried out. This thing is so quiet you wouldn't even know it is on if you couldn't see a bit of steam every so ofter. The whole thing comes apart in half to fill. It will hold a gallon of water. The water (top) section has an internal handle so it can easily be carried to fill. the penguin's head and beak rotate 360° that directs the steam flow where you want it. Consumer Reports tested a few vaporizer/humidifiers and decide that the Penguin was the top one. There are a whole lot of other animals that operate exactly like mine. I believe that they are as good as my penguin. My only complaint is that I have to empty the base each day as it fills with water overnight. I like this product, I recommend it, and I would purchase it again. Finally, I checked a lot of places and in my area Home Depot has the best price.

We have had one of these for over a year and recently bought another to give as a gift. We live in a cold, dry climate and have our heater or fireplace going constantly throughout the winter. This humidifier is a lifesaver to keep humidity in the house -- and the added plus is that it's a great conversation piece! It's fun and it does the job.

Love the penguin. Only complaints are that if you run it alot you are forever filling it up with water since it is only 1 gallon. You need to keep a towel under him because it keeps your carpet damp, other than these 2 things it is great.
