DANCING LIGHTS (LIGHT UP TOY FAQ)
Dancing Light are an EXPERIMENTAL product. Please READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY!
These are not the same quality as our normal production toys! They are two dozen experimental pours to figure out the technology, see if people like them, and uncover if there are any challenges for customers in use.
Things we noticed on the first batch you should know about:
• The molds have to be SUPER clean because the tiniest fibers from clothing or stuck to gloves show up in the clear silicone.
• There are often indents or nail marks from us figuring out how to get the cores for the lights out.
• The trim job on the internal radius of the toy is rough.
As these move from Beta testers to production this statement will be updated.
- What are they? Dancing Lights are fully usable silicone toys with removable LED lights that are remote controlled and waterproof.
- How Bright are they? A tiny 1" LED unit is not going to be able to compete with a bright room or daylight but they look pretty spectacular in a dark room and still pretty cool in a dim room. Larger toys will be brighter at the base and dim to dark at the tip because much of the light gets absorbed when it has to travel through 7+ inches of silicone.
3. How waterproof are the LEDs? They can be submerged in shallow water or splashed with no ill effect. Do not run them through a dishwasher or boil them.
4. Are they still safe to use? Yes, other than the cavity in the bottom of the toy for the removable LED unit they are perfectly normal toys.
5. Will the lights fall out? No, they hold in quite securely.
6. Can I clean the toy? Can I boil it? Yes, the lights come out easily and then the toy can be cleaned or boiled as normal. These are made with a silicone called Near Clear and you might want to check out the FAQ on it before boiling for extended periods.
7. I have reduced manual dexterity or hand strength; will I be able to get the lights in and out? They are not particularly hard to get in and out but it is possible you might need a friends help. The LED units also require a twisting/screwing motion to turn all the way back off that might be challenging. Its a little bit more difficult that a pill bottle.
8. My toy is stuck on the color red??? When the battery is low the LED units will sometimes get stuck on red. Replace the batteries and you will be just fine. They can be found by searching for "CR2032 battery".
9. Why is the battery dead if I have not used the toy much? Most likely you did not loosen the top on the LED unit after you turned it off. These are remote controlled and they use a little bit of power to “look” for the remote even if the light is off. Always loosen the top when you put them away to break the connection to the battery.
