~ Disney Cars Glitter Lamp ~
During the run up to Christmas last year Amazon had their Lightening Deal offers which were deals that were offered on various items that lasted a short amount of time, during these deals a Toy Story 3 version of these Glitter Lamps was offered which I bought but I then went browsing to see what other ones they offered and that is where I found the Disney Cars Glitter Lamp which I also ended up buying too. My son wanted a full size lava lamp but as he was only four years old at the time I didn't think it a wise idea so I opted for these two instead and hoped that these would do him until he was a little older.
I paid around £2 for the Toy Story one and around £4 for the Cars one, I didn't mind the slight price difference as I thought they both looked really cute.
Currently you can buy the Disney Cars Glitter Lamp on Amazon for £4.59 (price correct October 2012).
When they were delivered I was surprised at just how small they were, I hadn't read up on the sizes but I expected them to be a little bigger than they actually are, infact it made me glad that I did buy the two lamps!
The size of the lamp is a small 15cm high (6in) X 4.5cm diameter (1.8in). They are quite cute though.
The lamps come in a little cardboard package, with an open front. Taking it out you will see that a small white tab needs to be removed from the battery compartment in order for the lamp to work, once removed the lamp with a quick shake will spring into an array of changing colours, the colours change between red, green and blue. The lamp holds a plastic sheet in the middle that had the cartoon picture on it, this is stable and does not move when shaken but there is an added sprinkle of glitter in the water, these sparkle and catch the light and look rather pretty and funky.
The lamps look like your typical bullet shaped lava lamps but in miniture version.
The Cars one is has a red base and a red pointed top the middle section is clear through which you can see Lightening Mcqueen.
The lamps don't get hot so they are safe to handle even when flashing.
The lamp will turn off automatically after around 30 seconds of flashing.
My son really loved these and has them placed on his windowsill now and each night he gives them a little shake before getting into bed.
They have lasted well and I have never had to change the batteries, I am not sure of the size but they are the flat silver style (watch) batteries and are located on the underside of the lamp.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A nice little flashing toy.
