Summary: This is a great humidifier, when it works. The first two I purchased lasted a year or two. The replacement I purchased only lasted three months. It was hardly past the 3 month return period for Amazon when the switch went bad.
Summary: Wow, this did not last two days. The penguin worked fine for one night. The next night, I noticed absolutely no mister coming out. I investigated and it looks like the fan that propels the mist up the center column failed after one use. What a disappointment.
Summary: I get a new humidifier for my office about every other year. I like something fun because work is boring. I got this one last year as it was slightly less expensive than the Cranes. The Cranes had generally lasted two seasons, but this one only lasted one.
humidifier is great but don't order the replacement filter cartridge

Summary: The humidifier works well and is easy to use. However, I made the mistake of buying the replacement filter cartridge listed on the same page. It does not fit this model! It is for the other Crane penguin humidifier.
Summary: I don't usually bother writing reviews, but this this was garbage. It looks like a penguin, and that is cool, but it stopped working after a week. I figured the hassle of sending it back wasn't worth it, so it went in the trash.
Summary: So first what's good: its cute and looks good in a child's room. Also its compact so doesn't take up much space. Now for not so good: The "visible" mist isn't always guranteed specially after a refill!
Summary: I bought this cute humidifier for our bedroom at night while we sleep. I really like it, and I have been using it in my living room during the day, too. It is quiet and cute. Wasn't hard to put together or to get started. I did notice that it can't sit on the floor.
Summary: Received our penguin humidifier and it has been going pretty good for a month now. I had read reviews before about it making the area/floor wet.. From what I know about humidifiers, if that is happening, you have it set too high.. I just altered the power and it worked just fine.
Summary: The humidifier sent to us doesn't work at all. When we plug it in...nothing. When I finally had a chance to call the company, I was told they couldn't help me because the warranty had expired. I wasn't even looking for a refund, just a replacement! What I got was nothing.
Summary: Good purchase. Before buying this humidifier, I bought the Crane penguin humidifier and had to return it. The crane humidifier did not produce sufficient mist. This model works much better and is also a couple of dollars cheaper.
