      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      We had always wanted a bubble lamp especially since they started becoming frequent on the sets of TV programs, You've Been Framed, for example. We would see them on television and marvel at how wonderful they would look in our lounge. Shortly afterwards they started appearing in shops. We couldn't afford to buy one at first but we sold our house last year and had some money to spend on the new property so we decided that this would be the time to buy one. We bought it at a household shop that sells everything from linen to pictures, household accessories to paints etc. I can't remember the store, but they did have quite a selection of these lamps on show. We chose one of the taller ones with little dents in all over; a bit like a stick of candy. It had four different colours which alternate once the lamp is switched on. We were told to make sure that the water we filled it with had been boiled first to prevent that green slime which can occur if you use ordinary tap water. The lamp is really gorgeous, and on dark nights makes the room look all cosy, but the pump! Heavens - it's really loud. This is the only drawback, the buzzing noise the lamp makes can sometimed got on your nerves a little bit. This is the only minor niggle though. So, if you are thinking of purchasing a bubble lamp, remember you probably won't hear the pump in a noisy shop, but once the thing is going in your home, the humming may sound much louder.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        We recently bought one of those tall bubble lamps which have become popular ove the last couple of years. We first saw this concept on You've Been Framed one night; there were lots of 'bubble lamps' all over the set and we thought how gorgeous they looked. Although up until we bought ours, we had only seen them in The Gadget Shop, however one Sunday we visited our local Fads and they had some there. Not the normal straight ones, but 'Barley Twist' style, the tube is all 'wibbly wobbly' and ads to the design. When we had got it home and filled it with water (you have to use distilled water otherwise algy tends to form) we were delighted with it. Ours was ex display so we got it 10% cheaper (approx £54). The only thing we have against it is it is really noisy. Obviously the lamp used a pump to pump the bubbles up the tube but it really HUMS away in the background. Apart from this though, the lamp is great. It shines 4 colours up through the bubbly water in sequence and looks lovely in the corner of our lounge.
