At first I didn't like the fact that you needed a small Phillips or Flathead Screwdriver but immediately realized it was for the safety of the child so the batteries stay securely in place. Be sure to have the 3 AAA Batteries and have a small screwdriver handy when you give the gift or put the batteries in before wrapping up the dreamlights Pillow Pet. I recommend putting the batteries into the dream light pillow pets ahead of time. That way the child can turn it on right away and be dazzled by the stars and cute face lights.
The fur is really, really soft. I like the packaging because you can take the dream light Pillow Pet out of the box, put in the 3 AAA Batteries and Put it right back into the box without any ripping of the box or tearing anything except 2 strings that hold the Pillow Pets that light up in the box.
The day I priced out the Dream Lites Pillow Pets, the large local store was about 30 to 40% higher in price than the Amazon prices. Amazon prices vary regularly but I feel shopping at Amazon is like a sale every day for the most part. Get it shipped directly to your home or to the child's home. Every dreamlights pillow pets that I looked at on Amazon had FREE Super Saving Shipping but do make sure before purchasing.
The 20 Minute Timer is essential to save battery life. 3 AAA Batteries Needed. Make sure you put the batteries in the Dreamlight Pillow Pet before giving it as a gift. The little one will be anxious to try it out and watch the starry sky. (small phillips screwdriver needed to open the secure encasement for the batteries).
Dreamlight also handles antique art glass leaded, painted, and panel lamps by Handel, Miller, Bradley and Hubbard, and Pittsburg Lamp Co. We always have a selection of antique wall sconces and ceiling fixtures from the Arts and Crafs period. Also in stock are many appropriate antique accessories for an Arts and Crafts interior such as textiles, artwork, metalware, and American art pottery.
Dreamlight has always offered and will continue to buy and sell a broad selection of vintage Mid-Century Modern furniture, lighting, and accessories from the obvious, Herman Miller, Knoll, and Dunbar, to the less well-known, Drexel, Mengel, and Lane.
Thank you for looking.
