Product Description

Style Name: Double

Thanks to clever engineering and a beautiful Swarovski crystal, the rainbow maker from Kikkerland uses the sun to fill a room with rainbows. Like an active piece of art, the piece revolves when powered by direct sunlight, catching and refracting pretty bands of color. An enchanting piece for children and pets, the rainbow-maker adds cheer to any room and brightens up an interior. No batteries are necessary, and the piece includes a suction cup and a wire hanger for easy mounting. A great gift idea, versions are also available with heart and single crystals.

This joins the radiometer and 4" prism as one of the basic sun toys that everyone should have. It's a fun design with a transparent case, exposed motor, different colored gears, and counter rotating crystals. It looks to be quite well made, and I was pleased to find that its large built-in suction cup does a good job. Up close you hear a little whirring sound (not objectionable) from the motor and high speed gear, but from across the room it runs silently. Its speed doesn't vary with the intensity of the light, it either runs or it doesn't run. Occasionally it will click for a few seconds as the shadow of the sun passes over it.

I saw one reviewer who said the single crystal unit worked fine, but the double unit was underpowered and would barely rotate in bright sunlight. I don't find that to be the case at all, mine rotates even when the sun is partial obscured by clouds. As I write, it is late on a winter afternoon in New England with the sun low in the sky at 60 degrees off perpendicular, and my double unit is still running. I experimented and found it would even run when the solar cells were illuminated from the back!

Minor negatives --- Compared to the one big bright solar spectrum a 4" prism will throw on the wall, the spectrums from this thing are pretty small and dim, though the compensation is that there are many of them and they sweep around the room. When the sun is at the right angle, you have to expect that some of these 'rainbows' are going to pass over your eye, so you get a little flash now and then. It's more complicated than a prism or radiometer, so it's probably not going to live as long.

For those interested technically its solar panel is 4 cm x 2.5 cm = 10^-3 m^2 and looks to be five (1/2 V) cells in series.

I placed this item in my living room in a window that gets sunlight about 6 or 7 hours a day in the winter. It really needs direct sunlight in order to spin. In fact, if it doesn't have very strong sunlight, it'll make a ticking noise as the gears click against each other.
This is probably because the motor doesn't have enough electricity (from the solar panel) to move it foward, but has enough to make some of the gears move. Since it does make a noise that could bother you, if you're not a heavy sleeper, and you like to sleep after the sun has hit your windows, I wouldn't recommend this for a bedroom.
The rainbows are nice and reach across the room. They really are fun to watch and move in ways you don't quite expect. I'm thinking of finding crystals with two holes in them and stringing them on this rainbow maker. The more crystals, the more rainbows right? Adding crystals would just mean unbending the wire that holds on the current crystal, and adding the new crystal in between so the one it comes with is on the bottom (as it has only one hole).
The rainbow maker also works through our sheer curtains and casts fuzzy rainbows along the wall as well as tiny little rainbows on our curtain. Even when it isn't spinning, as long as it's receiving direct sunlight, it's casting rainbows around the room. It really helps you become more conscious of the passage of time and the movement of the clouds in front of the sun.
In addition to the suction cup, it also has a hook for hanging on a piece of string. I bought one for my mother and she's thinking of hanging it outside in a screened in room for the cats to play with.
The cats were amused by the rainbows, though if you leave it in the window all the time, it becomes less interesting after a while.

I bought one of these because it sounded really neat and I like rainbows. I was a little skeptical when I first put it up, because it days before I noticed anything happening. I realized that it needs a LOT of direct sunlight to work. My house, being located down a hill and surrounded by trees, doesn't get a lot. I put it in the sunniest place, and now I get rainbows! It is a fun experience to go in to the kitchen in the afternoon and have all the cabinets covered in rainbows. :) The cats love it too, they are constantly trying to catch the rainbows!

The first one I received didn't constantly rotate as the inside gears would jam. When I called the distributor I immediately spoke with a nice person who told me to return with "Please debit the postage back to my credit card." on the packing slip. And in a timely fashion I received a new rainbowmaker and a debit for the postage I spent to return the broken item!!! And my new rainbowmaker brings me such joy!

I bought one and loved it so much that I got two doubles and two singles. They fill the room with a spectacular light show every afternoon for a few hours. I found an ornament entended for an outdoor wind chime that had a string of 5 small mirror squares hanging from it. I cut the string and hung it from the single units. The mirros catch the sunlight and so along with the rainbow splashes of light, small flecks of brilliant white light also fly around the room. I can't tell you how many people rave about it once they see the spectacular effect. If you can find such a string of mirror squares, definately attach them to the unit. The single seems to be able to support the extra weight. The doubles many not unless you add an auxilliary solar panel wired in parallel, but then you are getting into more complicated modification, but if you are handy, this will be a great effect.

As for the degrading of the solar cells, yes, obviously these are not the highest quality and as with all photovoltaic cells, they do degrade with time -- the less expensive ones faster than the more expensive ones. But for the money, I don't expect they would last a live time. In fact, I would assume that the plastic gears would wear out in about as much a time frame. My worry is that they may not be easy to find a three or four years from now. What if the company goes out of business? I know may family and I will be very disappointed if we loose this little bit of beauty in our place. Therefore we are getting a few extra to put them in storage just in case.
