It light up very brightly. The only reason it didn't get a 5 start is because it is very small.About one feet tall. However, it is very light and portable. Also, it takes forever for it to get here. I usually receive my item within 5 days.
I finally received my lamp today Dec. 29th. It was ordered the 13th and shipped out the 15th and took two weeks to arrive. Too late for Christmas or birthday (28th). The lamp was also much smaller than I expected. It was to be 11.5 inches high and the only way it could be that tall is if the lamp is turned sideways and the neck is extended straight up. Not really tall enough to be used as a desk lamp, more for decorative purposes only. Very cute design and logo just not practical for use.
