I have to say I absolutely love the Crane Heating and Air Conditioning cow humidifier. It is just too cute first off. We have this humidifier in our nineteen month old daughters room and it has worked out great. She tells her moo cow good night every evening before bed. As far as performance we have been extremely pleased with it. It puts off a cool mist and helps keep the air in her room from being too dry. Do not let the cute and wonderfully thought out design of the crane humidifier fool you, it has an amazing volume output. The clean up of the crane cow humidifier is also really easy and stress free. The durability of the crane cow humidifier has been great. The motor seem to stand up to a lot of usage without any strain or effort. We were so impressed by this humidifier that we purchased one for our new baby's room as well. I would definately recommend the crane brand humidifiers to family and friends.
