A couple of weeks ago, my mom was wandering through the "Back to School" section at Walmart and saw these adorable locker chandeliers. And of course, she immediately thought of our dolls. ;) She ended up purchasing one and was kind enough to let me open it and do a review. (Thanks, Mom!) :D
Here it is in the package.
The picture on the back of the box, showing how it works.
It comes with a instruction page.
Here it is out of the package. As you can see, it hangs just a wee bit crooked, but it's not all that noticeable. My hubby actually saw these in the store and was not impressed with their quality. I think Mom and I are a little easier to please along that line. ;)
The chandelier includes batteries.
The round part at the top has 3 strong magnets that hold it up in your locker. All you'd need to do for a doll room is attach a piece of metal to the ceiling for the chandelier to hang on. The top is also where you put in the batteries (there are 3 tiny screws you unscrew to open it...I'd already removed 2 of them when I took the picture).
The chandelier has a switch to control the light. The "O" is the off position, the "I" is the motion-sensor setting (especially convenient for locker use), and the "II" is the continuous setting (so the light stays on no matter what). Side note here: I must apologize for the state of my nails. I'd just finished sharpening all of the girls' school pencils before I did this review, and didn't notice that I had pencil lead under my nails until after I'd taken all of the pics. :}
Here are the motion sensors.
And here is the chandelier all lit up. It is REALLY bright, by the way! ;)
And just to give you an idea of how ADORABLE it looks in the doll world, I held it up in Hayden's doll room. Must.resist.urge.to.go.to.Walmart. ;}
And here it is next to Hayden, so you get an idea of the scale, both on...
...and off (with the camera flash on).
Items in the seasonal section of Walmart tend to go pretty quickly, so if you're interested in one of these for your doll room, you'll probably want to go pick one up sooner rather than later. They are $14.95 each (or thereabouts). That's a bit spendier than my mom and I prefer for our doll items, but compared to what something similar would cost at American Girl, it's still a bargain. There's a black chandelier in this same design, and some round lamps that also hang from the ceiling (I think there are about 5 different patterns/colors on those ones).
You can also get these on Amazon.com (they have pics of a few of the other designs too), but they cost $10 more. Check them out HERE.
Hope you all enjoyed the post. :) I'll be back with more Blogoversary stuff later. :)
