We orginally purchased this heater because it was thin and had good thermstat. We got this heater we love the thermostat feature because it worked just like our house heating system. It shuts off automatically when the temperature in the room reaches the temperature set on the heater. This is a wonderful energy saving feature. We first purchase this heater when our twin sons were 5 years old and extremely active. Because it is very thin it is not sturdy enough to withstand the abusive of active young children. After about 4 months it stopped working and we returned it. We brought a new one this winter season and it has held up well. We usually keep it in our sons' room which is very drafty and put it away so they can't play with it. Since it is so thin and lightweight it is easy to move from room to room with very little difficulty. We noticed the heavier version in the lobby of our son's school but haven't been able to locate one to purchase in our area.
