For the most part, I've used fans that have a stand with them, but once my kids were walking, I couldn't risk them knocking one of them down. That's why I love the Honeywall floor fan. It is adjustable so I can place it high up and point it down so my kids catch some of the breeze. The design is great and the fan is actually pretty strong. It is easy to use with an adjustable setting, and is fairly durable. While it makes some noise when running, it is much quieter than other fans I have used in the past.
