Check out the blue rope light I received from Winterland. The holiday light is powered by energy efficient LED’s — about one LED every inch. The rope light is 18 feet in length, so that comes to about 216 LEDs. It’s been raining every day around here, so I have not had a chance to install it outside yet. But that has not stopped by son from playing with it (see photo above).
Thinking of getting rope light to add some dazzle to your outdoor lighting? If you are, then you should check out the selection of Christmas rope lights at All Things Christmas And More. They offer both incandescent and the more energy efficient LED rope lights. The company offers a variety of colors: red, green, blue, orange, pink, purple, white and multi-color ropes too. In my case, I purchased the blue LED rope lights for $19.36. I already have blue and cool white LED icicle lighting and I thought the blue rope light would fit in nicely.
If you’re like me, you probably have a lot old Christmas lights that consume a lot of electricity. I’ve been meaning to switch to the more energy efficient LED lights for a couple of years now. Maybe this year — especially since both the Winterland and LEDgen Lighting holiday stores are offering free shipping. All you have to do is use the following promo code: GUIDE
My kids received a couple of FyrFlyz toys to play with it. FyrFlyz is a spinning toy with a couple of LEDs that light up. It’s OK in the daytime, but looks really awesome in the dark. Kids, dads, and moms can create all sorts of cool tricks (patterns) with FyrFlyz. The new toy comes in three styles: Cyclone (green & white LEDs), Nytfyr (red & white), or Blue Angel (multicolor & blue). FyrFlyz retails for about $10 and is intended for kids age eight and up. My kids (ages eleven and eight) love the toy and they can create all sorts of neat patterns with it. Thanks to FyrFlyz (Facebook | Twitter), a reader of my dad blog can win the new FyrFlyz toy.
Checkout the MusicLite wireless LED light speaker combination in the photo below. The MusicLite features a 10-watt LED cluster (65-watt equivalent) and a 25-watt wireless high fidelity speaker. The device screws into a standard light socket. Nice! I’ve wired our TV room for surround sound and I can tell you it’s not a lot of fun. Snaking speaker wires through an insulated wall can be frustrating and crawling underneath the house is zombie creepy (I think our house was built on top of a graveyard). The MusicLite LED light and wireless speaker system would make a great gift for Father’s Day. Unfortunately, the MusicLite will not be available until this fall.
Super geek dads and moms should check out the RTC23 line of Marvel superhero LCD and LED HDTVs from Roundtable Concepts. The superhero TVs don’t come with any super powers, but they do feature pictures of superheroes at the bottom of the frame. And when you turn on the TV, superhero characters appear on the TV screen for about 8 seconds. Other than that, there’s really nothing super about the TV’s. And now that I think about it, the eight-second delay when you turn on the TV might be a little annoying after a while.
Currently, the super heroes featured are Ironman, Hulk, Elektra, Storm, She Hulk, Silver Surfer, Captain America, Thing, Invisible Woman, Thor, Wolverine, Fantastic Four, and Ghost Rider.
