“ Brand: Kidzdens / Type: Lamps, Lights and Shades „
This jungle lampshade was something I bought for our son's bedroom to go along with his animal jungle theme. After searching the internet for various ideas this one was the one that stood out the most due to its bright colour and design.
The lampshade comes in various sizes the sizes are:
Small: 18cm diameter x 14cm height
Medium: 18cm diameter x 21cm height
Large: 30cm diameter x 20cm height
Extra Large: 38cm diameter x 25cm height
What this means is it can be used for a small bedside lamp or as we have it for a pendant lampshade. We bought the large size to hang from the ceiling as we thought it would make the animals appear more clearly from below and it certainly does as they are nice and visible and clear.
The lampshade is very easy to fit and it took no more than 5 minutes to remove the old shade and fix the new one into place. The metal ring fits easily over the light fitting without being either too snug so it's too hard to fit nor is it too loose which would mean it would wobble in a breeze from the windows or fans in our sons room.
The shades design is very bright and appealing to children with lots of greens for the jungle background and various animals on it including a monkey lion and a snake. My son who is animal mad picked this from the internet from a small choice and when it arrived was more than happy with his pick as the animals on it complemented animal stickers and curtains that we had in the room. Purely by accident some of the greens in the shade matched identically the greens of his bedroom walls which we had painted with Dulux paint from their mixing section called Green Parrot 2.
The shade is made from a plastic material that is nice and tough and seems to be robust as there had been no damage in transit or when I have dusted it. Even though it is plastic and has a bright design the design doesn't reflect out on to the walls or ceiling. The light cast by the shade is nice and soft and suits a bedroom well we use an energy saving bulb which gives a lovely glow through the shade.
We bought the shade from www.kidzdens.co.uk for £29.99 which I think is a little expensive for a lampshade but it is good quality and very appealing too my 5 year old so we decided to go for it. It is only because of the price that I am reducing the shade from 5 stars to 4 stars.
