My little boy just became a father. He wanted a night light for his newborn son's room, but not just any nightlight. He wanted the one that he remembered us using in his little brother's room. "Too bad," I said. "That's my night light in the kitchen now, and I'm not going to give it up." But then I thought, "hey, I can buy anything on the internet." The thing was, though, that ONLY Overstock.com listed a "Tiffany Style Turtle Light" that looked like what I was looking for. And the price was incredibly good. I actually found an actual Tiffany Turtle Light, but it was at least ten times the one I found in Overstock.com. It made the perfect gift for my son ... and my first grandchild.

Before buying this I could not find info anywhere to say if it plugs into a regular electrical outlet or not, as the way the wiring info is written it sounds like it needed to be hard wired. Thankfully, I am able to plug it into any outlet and it does not need an electrician to permanely wire it. So no hassles there! I could only find a 4 watt bulb locally for it, the light says it takes up to a 15 or 25 watt. I am using it as a way to light the walking path through a dimly lit room and as a accent piece, so the low watt bulb works well. It's unique and something you dont see everyday. The turtle is attractive an nice enough for adults to enjoy looking at.
This is a great product. I have one for my 2 year old son and needed one for our newest arrival. They give off enough light, a soft glow, and can be used for many years.

I really like this nightlight. The base is heavy metal. The glass shell is not as amber colored as I'd hoped, but I may try a colored christmas bulb to darken the color a bit. I had to remove one of the screws where the light mounts on the inside to get the glass shell to snap on properly. For the price it's a good buy, and I'm very happy with it.
I bought this Tiffany Turtle nightlight a couple of years ago...and broke the glass shell when I tripped on it. I had checked Overstock for a replacement and it wasn't there, so I was excited to see it when I happened to check again. I am happy to have my turtle back, but the new one's shell paint is very faded so instead of amber it looks beigy and the shell pattern is barely visible. I will look for glass paint to see if I can darken it to look like my old cracked one.
My Mother loved the lamp. Only issue was it called for a 15 watt bulb but this "blew" when I tried it. I had to go with a 4 watt bulb which worked fine. It is a decorative piece not used for reading so it wasn't much of an issue.

I accidentally broke an antique turtle lamp at a good friend's house and felt terrible as it had been her mother's. I started searching online for something similar to replace it as a gesture and this is almost identical! My friend was touched and very pleased. It's a cute little lamp that works as a nightlight or just decorative accent, definitely not a lamp you can read by!
