Authentic detail with realistic moonscape.
Enjoy the shining beauty of the moon right at home with Uncle Milton's Moon in My Room. This realistic moon model hangs on your wall and lights up to show the different phases of the moon. Recommended for children ages six and older, Moon in My Room lets you experience the awe-inspiring sight of our moon at any time.
Built-in Lights Showcase the Moon's Phases
Uncle Milton's Moon in My Room features rows of lights that glow softly behind the detailed lunar surface. The lights are specially arranged to mimic the phases of the moon, going from a new moon to full moon and all the phases in between. Teach your child about the solar system while watching Moon in My Room show off the moon's progression from dark to light.
Included Remote for Easy Control
Included with Moon in My Room is an infrared remote that lets you control your moon model from across the room. The remote features buttons to turn the lights on or off, trigger each progression of the moon's phases sequentially, or set it to slowly cycle through each phase automatically.
Downloadable Moon Tour
Each Moon in My Room comes with a download code on the instruction sheet. Using this code, you can download an audio tour of the moon from UncleMilton.com. A perfect learning opportunity, you can watch your Moon in My Room cycle through its phases while listening to an informative tour of the lunar landscape.
Auto Shutoff Saves Battery Life
After 30 minutes without interruption, Moon in My Room will automatically shut off to save battery power. This lets you fall asleep to the soft glow of the moon, while conserving battery power to make sure Moon in my Room can be enjoyed for a long time.
Our testers found Moon in My Room to be both detailed and well made. The textured, domed surface was quite realistic and glowed nicely in a dim room. The included remote seems to be the only way to control the Moon unit, so it's important not to misplace it. If you do, however, replacements can be found on the Uncle Milton website.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It shows several moon phases from crescent to full, waxing and waning, only the first crescent moon appeared realistic. All the others revealed to sharp a division where you could see dimmer lights from the other phases. For example, the last quarter was bright, but you could still see a division between the last quarter and last half.
With all the phases other than the first crescent, the moon glowed slightly. Which although not unattractive, a bit distracting being able to see the divisions between phases.
In all phases that were more than half lit, especially the full moon, there was a bright spot in the middle. To me this was the main thing I disliked about it. Having such an uneven illumination most of the time.
Then there is 'auto' mode. Not sure what I expected, since recreating the actual current moon phase might be somewhat difficult in an inexpensive item. But having it cycle through each phase every five seconds wore thin very quickly. Maybe, with the price of cheap watches, it shouldn't be so difficult to track the actual moon phase. Even the rising and setting times.
I didn't have it up long enough to determine battery life. But even some of the complimentary reviews concede it is not long. Maybe with a set of rechargeable batteries, not a big deal. But then, to change the batteries, you'll have to dig out your Philips screwdriver to remove the battery cover. Not sure why they couldn't have just used a toolless clip. The remote uses a screw on the battery cover too.
I have another Uncle Milton toy, 'Fireflies in My Room', or something like that, and it's kind of cool. And I once considered an Uncle Milton ant farm, but too many people said the ants died or arrived dead. So this had a 50/50 chance, but unfortunately doesn't make the grade in my opinion. Depending on your needs and expectations, it may meet yours.
There's also a larger version that costs considerably more, and includes a lunar eclipse function. So if you missed the real one last month and can't wait 17 years for the next 'blood' moon, you can consider that one.
EDIT: I've noticed numerous reviews that are extremely brief with 5 star ratings. Amazon has had a problem with planted or purchased 5 star reviews. After my experience with this product, I wouldn't trust any of them.
this product is probably more suitable for children.
The moon takes AA batteries and the remote takes AAA so we made an extra trip to the store, put them in, and it worked beautifully. Its neat to see the different stages of the moon. It glows in a bluish hue, which is pretty, as opposed to yellow.
It was really easy to put up on my sons wall and now its his night light as it turns off on its own after 30 minutes regardless of the setting its on. Theres a manual setting where you can "scroll" through the cycles of the moon or an automatic one where it will do it on its own. Both settings will shut off after that amount of time.
This is one of those items that a child of 3 can enjoy or an older kid can. Its just best to keep the pieces away from the little ones...
It got to us within a week, which we were happy about.
Definitely recommend this neat item to anyone.
Fast-forward two months later when Mommy completely forgets this detail and the moon comes crashing down in the middle of story time. My son was traumatized his beloved moon fell, and I thought it was a goner. After all, it fell 8 feet to a hardwood floor!
But it turned back on! Such a happy Mommy-moment. Though I'm sure this item wasn't made for durability, I can say it definitely has some!
What Uncle Milton's Moon in My Room was made for is beauty, and I can say it has the most beauty to my son. He loves the moon, and having it in his room is the most precious thing to him. I'm attaching close-up pictures of it lit up to help everyone see its beauty! (And an unlit as well.)
The light is brightest in the center, but the pictures make it look like more than it is in real life.
