Halloween Necklaces w/Flashing Light & Sound, retail $19.95/doz (www.orientaltrading.com...)
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 10-01-07

These are Halloween-themed necklaces that have a blinking LED in them and also make a "warbling" sound from a little piezoelectric speaker in the back. They come with an LED color of red and they come in four shapes:

A white ghost,
A Jack-O-Lantern (carved pumpkin),
A witch,
A Frankenstein; predominantly colored green & black.

They only come in lots of 12; the price per piece is just ~$1.66 each.


To use the necklace, first, put it around your neck.

On the back of the necklace, you'll see a circular metal thing with a hole in it. Firmly press and release this metal disc.
The necklace will then flash its red LED and emit a warbling sound for 27 seconds (timed on a clock with a second hand on it), then automatically turn off.

All four styles of necklace provided, around a flashlight tester's neck of course.

This appears to be a disposable product, so I do not have to tell you which part to remove, chuck under some poor sap's porch (probably the same house you toilet papered), and then tell you not to.

Because this is a holiday-themed (Halloween, in this case) novelty item and not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused, 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, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannonada (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 or with a handheld wand that Langston Licktoad uses), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them.

The Flashing Light & Sound Necklace is not water-resistant or submersible, therefore, water, milk, diet vanilla Pepsi, cold (or hot) coffee, urine, ice cold fizzy root beer, disposable douches, disposable enemas, tranny fluid, gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, brake fluid, motor oil, or other liquids could get inside. So please try not to drop it in creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, oceansides, docksides, snowbanks, puddles of blue whale pee, tall cold glasses (or short lukewarm glasses) of milk, slush piles, mud puddles, tubs, root beer floats, toilet bowls, cisterns, sinks, cups of coffee (hot *OR* cold), fishtanks, dog water dishes, old yucky wet mops, wall-mounted porcelain urinators, leaky water heaters, busted garden hoses, puddles of antifreeze, brake fluid, tranny fluid, gasoline, or other places where water or water-like liquids might be found. And you'll probably want to cover it up or otherwise get rid of it (such as by putting it in a very large pocket or in a bag) if you need to carry it in rainy or snowy weather.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, dump out the water if necessary, and set it in a warm dry place for a day or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you use it again.

If it fell into seawater, got thrown into a glass of milk, if it fell in a root beer float, if it fell into a bowl of "soft-serv" ice cream, if somebody squirted a Massengill brand post-menstrual disposable douche or a Fleet brand disposable enema at it (and hit it with the douche or the enema), or if somebody or something peed on it, rinse it out with fresh water before setting it out to dry. You don't want your necklace to smell like seaweed, sour milk, flowers, fresh butts, or rotten piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater, disposable douches, disposable enemas, or urination), lactic acid (from moo juice), glycerol (from antifreeze), or sugar (from root beer & ice cream) can't be very good for the insides.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
