Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FAB Such a beautiful colour combination. This lamp produces a gorgeous warm glow within the room. It will transfix you and hypnotise you. It is stylish, modern and of good quality. The lamp just sits on the base and isn't fixed in as such. The lid comes off of the top easily to reveal the "bottle". This is to allow for easy replacement of new bottle when the current one runs out. By run out I mean that the purple will eventually turn clear and the red turns to orange. The liquid doesn't move as freely as it used to, but it is still just as lovely. I will be replacing this bottle in a few months. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality Really pleased with this item, good quality. The picture does not do the colours justice. A lovely gift. 30 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous traditional lamp This is a fabulous, robust retro lamp from the original manufacturers, the difference is clear to see. 16 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Original product An original version of lava lamp. Lovely colour combination gives a welcoming, warm homely feel. The wife loves it too so bonus points awarded! It does get hot to touch so must be out of reach of kids and animals. 04 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as expected Bought this for my 6 year old son at Christmas as he has always admired them and none of us have been disappointed. The colours are bold and it moves beautifully. He watches it when he goes to bed and on waking before the rest of us get up. Hopefully it will last him for many years to come. A quality product. 02 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The one and only I have looked for many years for a good Lava Lamp but it is impossible to find a decent one cheaper. This is an original and acts exactly how I remember it. The only small niggle and the reason it only gets 4 stars, is there are tiny clear bubbles in the glass and show up as bright white dots which can still be seen from 8ft away. 26 October 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Attractive and mesmeric This was a replacement, as the first one that arrived was extremely unstable, the glass section not fitting the base effectively and having a definite list even when carefully placed. As this was to be a present for a young teenager it would have been unsuitable if not dangerous. The second one, which arrived by special delivery within two days, was much better although still very slightly wobbly. This seems to be a design issue. 04 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as I remembered! Mathmos is still producing high quality lamps. Its just as I remembered . Once it has warmed up you can't stop watching it. 04 January 2012
