==Lego Lights Dynamo Torch==
Jack really does love his Lego and he has such a vast collection of Lego merchandise from the Star wars range, Indiana Jones to the regular Lego city items. He has posters covering his walls and anything to do with Lego that we see out and about he wants to buy. So it was really only about time until we bought him this great torch from Lego.
The torch itself is a good size and is basically like a Lego mini figure but instead of being mini the torch stands at around 19 cm in height but looks just like a regular figure from Lego. We paid around £18 from Tesco for the torch for Jack's birthday back in June and I think he pretty much uses the torch every single night to sneakily read books after lights out! I think you can probably get this torch for a little cheaper now especially if you look around online you are bound to get a bargain.
The good thing I find about this torch is the fact that you don't need batteries! Yes that's right a modern toy like item that DOESNT NEED BATTERIES. Its amazing and you could tell Jack was a little confused at first but the idea of having to wind the Lego torch up to generate the power to light the little LED lights that are housed in the soles of the feet of the Lego man did really appeal to Jack after the initial shock wore off.
The two LED lights are really very bright and the fact that there are two bulbs, one in each foot, make it really bright. The brightness does of course dim slightly when the charge is running low but a few turns of the Lego man's arm and the charge is back a little. It does need a good few minutes of turning his arm to generate enough power to read for a bit but I think Jack likes turning his arm as much as he like reading books under the covers!
The little man certainly looks good on Jack's bedside table and does match a lot of his other Lego goods. I think it would have been nice if the Lego man had a hat or something but the lump on the Lego man's heads has actually been made into the on/off button which is a good feature and is in a handy place to easy switch the torch on and off.
The general design of the Lego torch is really good and being able to angle both the legs and arms of the torch make it feel like a really big mini figure and jack does love it so much. It has taken a good deal of use since we have bought it and it is still going strong so I am sure this item will continue going strong for many years to come. I am happy to award the fabulous little torch a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation as it would certainly make a lot of children's Christmas a very happy one!
I do hope that this has been of some help/ interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
