There is a couple of things that didn't make sense to me right off the bat, after the first time of use. First: it is virtually impossible to drain it completely! The only drain is the hole through which you fill the tank with water, and it is right in the middle of the rectangle bottom panel - you can angle and shake it all you want, but the remaining water will always miss the drain and stay inside! Second: according to a very accurate humidity meter, this humidifier increases humidity level in a small room (13'x14') only by 2% (with the door closed). I don't think these 2% make a lot of difference when it's winter outside. You cannot put this humidifier on carpet (the vent is on the bottom); the power cord is very short; and the night light is not a light, but more like a spooky glow - you can barely see anything in a small room with its help. Also, the instructions manual states that this humidifier should not be used without adult supervision. Considering that most of us would get a Thomas humidifier for kids bedrooms, and keeping in mind that a lot of times it is being used at nights, I don't understand how else it can be used unless I sit all night in my kids' room awake watching it. I am extremely disappointed in this product. It is not worth the money. I am definitely getting another humidifier - one that may not look so cute, but one that actually works more or less decently! It's nice to have your kids' favorite character as a humidifier, but it would be even nicer if my kids could wake up without sore throats from dry air - priority is obvious.
