Review: Crane Air Purifier

As I have mentioned before, my 4 year old, Wyatt battles allergies. We have no carpet in the house, but we do have a dog, and I worry about what he is breathing in while he sleeps. I know air purifiers do a great job, but none of them were "cool" enough to be in his room. That was until we found Crane.

Their purifiers are not only adorable, but also totally functional, they are AHAM certified!! Crane Air Purifiers come in two styles, Shark and Penguin. Here are some of the features that their air purifiers offer:

-A 5 Level Filtration Helps Remove Airborne Allergens, Bacteria, Viruses and Germs.

-The Germicidal UV Light kills Viruses and Bacteria to deliver germ free fresh air.

-A true HEPA Filter captures up to 99.97% of airborne dust and pollen as small as 0.3 microns from air passing through the filter. This filter also helps reduce smoke, mold spores and pet dander.

-An active carbon filter takes care if the large particles as well as common household odors caused from tobacco, pet, garbage and cooking.

-A photocatalyst filter in conjunction with the internal UV light creates advanced oxidation that eliminates airborne odors and neutralizes odors and harmful fumes.

- Washable Particle FilterFoam filter helps capture larger particles and extends the life of the HEPA-Filter

- A 3 Speed Control with low noise setting for continuous quiet operation

-Really easy to change filters.

-A tip over switch with auto-shut off function turns of the purifier if it is tipped.

Wyatt loves his new Shark Purifier that Crane was nice enough to let us try. Here is a picture of his shark in his room. Doesn't it just make you smile?LOL

I find that he is sleeping better at night and waking up less congested. I do find that the purifier is loud, even on the lowest setting, but that actually works well for us because he doesn't hear the baby at night. It is super easy to set up right out of the box and also really easy to use on a daily basis. Wyatt actually reminds us to turn it on if we forget before he goes to bed.

Crane also carries a full line of humidifiers, including Sports and Spongebob. If your child needs a purifier of humidifier, be sure to look into Crane. Their products are fun for kids to look at and a great quality product for mom and dad. You can find Crane products at mass retailers including Target and Babies R Us.
