little home at John Lewis Dinotastic Table Lamp
Really lovely and good quality but not very bright!!!
This is a really good quality product and looks lovely in my sons bedroom with the whole range. My only criticism would be that the light is not very bright at all. The light is not bright enough for reading and is more useful as a soft night light.

Nice while it lasted
This is a very cute lamp for providing a night light in a child's bedroom (it's NOT a reading light).
It was originally a Christmas present but it stopped working after a week. JL swapped it with no fuss even though i didn't have a receipt and the second one lasted 7 months before it stopped working. Changing the bulb had no effect. The wiring just doesn't seem to be very good.
I will look elsewhere now I think...

Not a table lamp!
Lovely range (we have the bedding & pendant shade). However, bought this to add to my boys room to make it cosy in the evenings when going to bed (thought I could read to them with it on), but it the bulb is so dull you can hardly see your hand in front of your face when its on! It is not a table lamp, it is a nightlight. Should really be re-named as its a bit misleading. Will be returning for a proper lamp.

Returning for the second time. Very poor!
My advice: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Great looking lamp but terrible wiring design. It has a jack plug type connector which slots into a transformer plug (a very big transformer btw). Our first lamp was returned as this connection was too loose and dangerous, JL said they had changed the design of the wiring for this very reason and ordered us a new one. Obviously the company is aware of the problem. The new one arrived with exactly the same design but a slightly firmer connection so we kept it. Two weeks on and the 3rd bulb has blown. Last night, when checking on sleeping babies, I heard the fizzing noise of a short circuit and removed the lamp from the room. We are just off to John Lewis to put in a complaint about this product It's only a matter of time before someone, somewhere ends up with an electrical fire. DO NOT buy this product. It is dangerous.

This lamp is a good night-light - in terms of its squat form making it pretty stable; and for the blue glow of the light it casts. However it doesn't give a great deal of light even with a brighter bulb, the blueness is a bit peculiar, so it is quite hard to read by at bedtime-story-time. I really like the fabric design and colour and only wish the rest of the room was as stylish!

really useful product!
My little 2.5yr old has suddenly become afraid of the dark! The customer service at John Lewis was as always amazing. The lady knew exactly what I wanted: something safe. I didn't realise that there was a range of extremley safe children's lamps. He loves it and is sleeping better!
