I've seen the Crane humidifier even before in-store and I love the cute designs they offer.
I browsed at Walmart.com and saw that the Crane "Curtis the Cow" Cool Mist humidifier was on sale so I went ahead and purchased it and had it delivered to our home (since it's not available for pick-up at the Walmart near us).
When it came, my daughters saw the box and thought it was a toy. Of course seeing a picture of a cute cow on the box, it did look like a toy. :)
I removed the Crane humidifier and found it light and easy to carry.
I then read the instructions and followed it.
My 2 year old daughter (almost 3! :)) even posed beside the humidifier. :)
My thoughts on the Crane "Curtis the Cow" Humidifier:
First, I like that it doesn't require a filter. Based on my experience, most things that need filters becomes more expensive in the long run because of the continuous need to purchase and replace the filter. So, since it's filter-free, I can say it's very affordable.
Next, I like that it is really quiet (since it's an ultrasonic humidifier). It doesn't really make irritating noises. It makes a very light whispering sound (and I can only hear it when the room is really quiet) but for me, the sound is soothing.
I also like that the water tank can hold up to 1 gallon of water which is enough to run up to 24 hours. It can also effectively humidify rooms up to 250 sq. ft. and it has an auto shut-off sensor.
I really like the cow design since it's cute and fit for children.
The only thing I noticed is that I have to disinfect the humidifier once a week. Okay maybe I'm exaggerating since any object or thing needs to be cleaned once in a while right? :)
Here is a video of my daughters enjoying the Crane "Curtis the Cow" Cool Mist Humidifier:
So far, I am loving our new Crane Cool Mist Humidifier. I should've bought this way, way before because it really helped my 2 daughters' allergy symptoms.
We've only been using this for 5 days and I notice a big difference on my 2 daughters' allergies. They don't cough as much as before anymore and the cool mist cools down the room too. :)
