These are fun and whimsical...I love them! I have them hanging in the tree outside my bedroom window and they create a magical ambiance for relaxing evenings. I am grateful that there is an on/off button. My only complaint is that when I turn them back on I have to reset the blinking options again. I don't like the blinking at all. It's too fast and frenetic. I would have preferred just a steady stream, but I'm sure other people enjoy the options.
