Giveaway & Review: Furry Nessie LED Lamp from Artistic Sensations [CLOSED]

"Room to Play" Product #7

If you are looking for a unique lamp for your child's, tween's, or teen's room, you must take a look at this adorable (and furry) child's LED lamp I found at Artistic Sensations, an online boutique that offers you everything you need in children's room design.


This is the Nessie Lamp . . .


Inspired by the Loch Ness Monster, this lamp has a flexible neck that can make the lamp shine on the ceiling, a desk, the book your child is reading in bed, or anywhere else light is needed. It measures an impressive 24"h when pointing straight up. Even when completely vertical, the Nessie lamp is weighted on its wider base, so it is extremely steady. My daughter uses this lamp on her bedside table and I have no worries about it tipping over.

The power switch is hidden within the head of the lamp under the soft furry material. Your child need only squeeze the head to turn the lamp on, off, and to switch between settings. It is very user-friendly and our 3yr old daughter can turn the light on and off by herself without any problems. The various settings include different levels of brightness, as well as a variety of colors. You can even set the LED light to change colors on its own. You just click the same button to scroll through these options.


This cordless lamp runs on 4 AA batteries, which are not included. There is a place to plug in an A/C adapter if you so choose, but an adapter is also not included with this lamp. For us, the lamp being cordless is perfect for our needs. I like that there is no wire for our daughter to play with and that the lamp is portable, should we need an extra light somewhere else. It was also a life-saver the day we lost power for over 6 hours due to a storm last month.


The Nessie Lamp comes in 9 different colors and patterns and is currently selling on Artistic Sensations for $34.99 (regularly $44.99). To view the full selection of children's and teen furniture, room furnishings, wall decor, and more, visit ArtisticSensations.com .
