Light-Up Halloween Pumpkin, retail $3.99 (*)
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 10-01-13

This is a miniature jack-o-lantern (hollowed-out, carved pumpkin) that you would place in a windowsill or as part of a larger Halloween decoration (a dining room table centerpiece springs to mind right off the bat here).

It has two self-flashing RGB (Red/Green/Blue) LEDs inside that do a color wash and some flashing antics, and feeds those LEDs with a trio of LR44 button cells.

It comes in a Styrofoam body with a shiny flecked finish; although this one is colored purple, I saw an orange one in the vicinity when I put the purple one in my shopping cart.

* Product was not found on the Grocery Outlet website mainly because there is no site 'search' function visible, so this URL simply leads to their, "front door".


The Light-Up Pumpkin is almost ready to use as soon as you purchase it; all you need do to activate it is pull that small plastic tab out from the battery door on the product's underside and then dispose of it.

On the bottom of the "pumpkin", there's a black on/off switch.
Slide it toward the "on" position as embossed into the area around the switch.

Slide it toward the "off" position as embossed into the area around the switch in order to neutralise it

To feed the hungry, hungry pumpkin, turn the unit upside-down, remove the screw with a #0 phillips screwdriver (the one with the 2.4mm shaft diameter from my set of jeweler's screwdrivers did the trick here), lift the battery door away, carry it to a graveyard, gently place it into an open grave, and wait for the yucky stinky zombies to find it. They'll soon see where it is, get all pissed at it, and start stomping it or even uranate on it...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the three used LR44 button cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Install three new LR44 button cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) positives face the spring in the battery compartment.

Place the battery door back on, screw that screw back in, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad you didn't place that battery door at the bottom of an open grave in a graveyard crawling with slimey, stinky zombies with full pissinary bladders now?

The Light-Up Pumpkin is a household lamp, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a scanner-type device on a platform with a large readout, a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoņata is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the Light-Up Pumpkin's web page will seem ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The Light-Up Halloween Pumpkin is made predominatly out of Styrofoam and it's hollow (it feels rather fragile actually!), so there is a fairly significant risk of product breakage if it is dropped onto bare flooring from chest height. Therefore, you probably won't want to drop it or knock it off a table or windowsill.

Battery powered and safe for use around flammable materials
Nice physical appearance (very spooky, which is appropriate for Helloween)


Very fragile construction; please don't drop it or nock it out of the windowsill or else it could become broken (that's what lopped the most stars off its rating)
