    The Rainbows Light Up The RoomI have been purchasing this from this manufacturer for a number of years. They do last a long time; however, when the rotation ceases to work, the crystals still light up the room. They make wonderful and unique gifts!

    Very cute and pretty. Has its flaws here and there.Cute. Got one for my mom and just ordered another one for myself. She got me one as a kid but these things are fragile and don’t typically last forever. Works great. Put in direct sunlight for best results. It sometimes won’t spin or work but I think it really has to be getting sun on the entire panel.

    Dance with the RainbowsI bought this for Christmas as stocking stuffer to entertain our three cats. I thought they’d just enjoy looking at the rainbows and so I did not realize that it rotated like a disco ball as the sun shines on it. We now jokingly call 11 AM “Club Rainbow” in our house as the cats chase the moving rainbows around our office. It’s good exercise for them and a solid hour or so of entertainment for us.

    How to repair Solar Powered Rainbow MakerThree things predictably fail on Solar Rainbow Makers- the solar cell fails to produce enough power, the bevel gear that drives the prism shaft cracks, and the suction cup fails to hold. Fixes we found:1)Solar Cell-Found the original solar cell produces approximately 50mA @2volts in direct sunlight. Located a larger solar cell producing 130mA@2volts, but was a little larger.(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BLP238X?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details)Cut wires to existing cell, soldered wires to new cell. Glued new solar cell to old cell holder. New cell produces enough power to turn prism even on cloudy days and out of direct sun.2) Bevel Gear Crack-Repair posted online by something else, used thin wire twisted around base of bevel gear to close crack in gear and apply super glue. This works but you will need to slightly enlarge bevel gear shaft hole to prevent it from stretching and reopening crack when you place gear back on shaft. Very small drop of super glue on shaft to secure bevel gear on shaft after enlarging shaft hole. Alternative method is to heat shaft with butane lighter and slide bevel gear onto shaft while pinching to keep crack closed. Plastic bevel has low melting point and one must be careful not to get shaft too hot; get just hot enough so that gear will slide on shaft without stretching crack. When cooled gear will fuse to shaft.3) Removed suction cup and replaced with Velcro tape. Used small piece of matching Velcro on window muntins. We can’t apply suction cups or velcro tape directly on our windows since we have installed solar film and either would damage it if attached. The solar film does not interfere with the solar cells.All these repair require disassembly of Rainbow Maker. The two long machine screws that go through the motor armature plates have tiny nuts on the back side. Be careful not to lose them! Only tool required is a tiny phillips head screw driver. Note-Will need soldering skills to attach old cell wire leads to new solar cell.I’ve probably spent way too much time repairing these but it has become a challenge and perhaps an obsession to fix them. It is satisfying to see one once broken and sitting in a drawer back spreading color.

    Great product!Works well – it is fun to see and hear the solar power take off and send tiny lights around the room.

    When it works, it’s great!It took weeks for it to finally work in my west facing Arizona window. I finally tried moving the prism with my fingers and it started to move on it’s own.

    Wake up to rainbows 🌈Okay, so this thing isn’t cheap, but let me tell you, it is worth every penny. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a room filled with bouncing rainbows? It’s like a little dose of happiness every morning. I recommend this bad boy to anyone looking to add a little extra sunshine to their day. It’s whimsical as hell. Truly a delight. You won’t regret it.

    Pretty CoolObviously you need the right amount of sun to make this work. But when it does, it is pretty cool to enjoy. It really livens up the room.

    Suction cup works for over 2 yearsThis is a wonderful product. It catches the morning sun and fills our home with moving rainbows, all by solar power. My 7 month old loves it. We believe rainbows bring us luck! The suction cup has lasted 2 years and is still working well!
