Fab deal, usually no less than £20!
I'll check the Amazon reviews but thought I'd ask here too; are these any good/useful in a room with newborn?

Our baby is nearly 3 months now, and we have had this since the start. I really, really like it. It gives a quick view to the temperature (colour-coded), and you can usually find what your baby 'should' be wearing for each temperature. For 10, this is a bargain.
I don't know if these have improved recently but the temperatures on the two I had (original and replacement) were way off - and sometimes ridiculously so (the room would be freezing yet the egg was glowing red!) Other times the temperature would stick (i.e. I took it outside and the temperature recorded 6c. I then brought it inside and hours later it still showed 6c!

I borrowed a calibrated thermometer from work to test it and it was always 10-20% out.

They're a great idea in theory but they're just not reliable enough. Get one of these instead

Hit and miss, I nearly bought one around 5 years ago but there were issues with the lamp effecting the temperature. I just bought a cheap digital thermometer. It doesn't have to be 100% accurate just need to hit mid range with a healthy baby.

Scientists hypothesise that the failure to properly regulate a baby's room temperature leads to a poor standard of literacy in adult life.

QED?
Great for first child. By the time number two comes along you won't worry unless there's frostbite.

Lol
Waste of time.

You know if a room is hot or cold when you walk in, you check the temp on this by waking in the room, either way you have to walk in the room.
Great price. It was already on my 'to buy for baby' list - have ordered.

Many thanks OP.

We have all done that as someone above said, its great for your first as its one less thing to worry about as a new parent but by the time number 2 comes along opening a window in summer and closing it in winter is as technical as it gets

These thermometers are probably worth £10 just as a night-light really especially if you can get a ghost/owl/whatever cover cheap.

Exactly

Yeah I received it today and it seems to work well, I thought the light would be brighter (I can't even see it), but I did test it in a day-lit room in the middle of the day. I guess that's why it's marketed as a sort-of nightlight. Either way, I'm happy with my purchase and no doubt it would come in handy.
Great deal. Never seen them this cheap.
