They were on sale at Home Depot several weeks back, and we snagged one for a good price. We let it run for the kids at night so they stay cool. Our son INSISTS on sleeping with his "comfy" (comforter) on him at all times. Even when it is still 99+ outside when he goes to bed. This fan has helped my little cuddle buddy stay cooler and no wake up in a pool of sweat every morning.
