Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mookoo Cute and Super Bright
It looks just as pictured. Lamp is light weight, material feels plasticky but still crystal-like and is cute. LED light is super bright, like a spot light. I had intended to use as a night light for the bedroom, but I think it is too bright for that purpose, so I am now using it by my bookshelf in the living room and only turns it on/off as needed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PEANUT QUALITY CONTROL NEEDS IMPROVEMENT
I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN RECEIVED TURTLE LIGHT.THE DIFFERENT COLORS ON SHELL DO NOT BLEND INTO EACH OTHER. THE ORANGE/YELLOW COLORS DO NOT MEET THE BROWN LINES IN SOME AREAS WHICH RESULT IN HOLES. IN OTHER AREAS THE COLORS OVERLAP ON TOP OF EACH OTHER ESPECIALLY THE BROWN OUTLINE OF SHELL WHICH MAKES LIGHT LOOK VERY BAD. LIGHT OUTPUT IS UNEVEN BECAUSE OF THICK AREAS/HOLES. THERE IS NO SWITCH ON LIGHT I RECEIVED ( THERE IS A THICK RUBBER SPLICE WHERE SWITCH SHOULD BE ) WHICH MEANS IT HAS TO BE PLUGGED IN AND UNPLUGGED WHEN EVER I WANT TO USE IT. THE ONLY GOOD THING IS IT COMES WITH A VERY LONG CORD SO IT CAN BE PLACED A GOOD DISTANCE FROM OUTLET IT IS PLUGGED INTO IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN OUTLET NEAR THE LOCATION YOU WANT TO PUT IT AND IT IS BRIGHT ENOUGH TO USE AS AN ACCENT LIGHT IN LIVING ROOM OR BATHROOM NIGHT LIGHT.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nanadei Nice Product but Placement a Problem
This is a beautiful product but I bought it for yard/patio décor and did not realize it needed to be plugged in. This has created a problem because I do not have access to an outlet and it is not appropriate for standard in home décor really. If you have a patio outlet to dedicate to this, it is perfect if not... The cord is not geared for strictly outdoor use either. Bottom line I was disappointed but only because I couldn't use it where I had intended, not in the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MacHic Nicely bright themed light
Packed and arrived in very good condition. Well made. Gives off a lot of light. Colors are nice too. Although the description says it could be used as night light, it is much larger and brighter than a trafitional night light, not to mention the cost. But as a fun accent light, it's perfect. Switch on the cord is handy since light does not have to be unplugged from outlet to be turned off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lady Adorable nightlite
I have this nightlite in my bedroom so I don't trip over any of my dogs when going to the bathroom. It's not as bright as my bear nightlite and that's just fine with me. It sits on my dresser. What I like about it is it's not real bright due to it's amber shell. It has a handy turnoff switch. It doesn't interfere with me falling asleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit A goofy little turtle to read by
OK these lamps aren't exactly high style. They are made from blobs of clear and colored styrene or similar plastic that have been deposited in an additive manufacturing process and formed to create various shapes. The lamps have a bumpy, blobby looking appearance, sort of like what you would get if you made a sculpture by building up blobs of hot melt glue, but this makes for a neat, sparkly look when you turn on the lights and they are fun to look at and my kids really enjoy them.
We got the mushroom and the turtle and I let my kids choose. My daughter chose the mushroom and it is a nice nightlight for the pile of dollies and stuffed animals who otherwise get scared in the dark. My son uses the turtle as a bedside lamp and it is more than bright enough for him to read by. They don't have on off switches, but I bought a couple of push-on/push-off switches and added them at the turtle's tail and the base of the mushroom so that the kids can turn them on and off easily.
Anyway, you won't see these in the nursery at Buckingham Palace, but they are fun and they contain a bright string of white LEDs which I am looking forward to repurposing when the kids get tired of the lights.
