This is a small, battery-powered lamp meant to be used on Halloween (October 31 in the US).

It has what I believe are two LEDs, which are fed into a bundle of optical fiber inside; these fibers terminate in the eyes, nose, and mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern, and also protrude from the "head" of the pumpkin as "hair".

These fibers emit red and blue light. On some of the optical fibers, a purple light is emitted as the red and blue light mixes.

I was not able to find this on the Wallgreens website, so I have no URL to furnish you. I purchased it at a Wallgreens store in mid-October 2005.


To use this product, feed it first (see directly below), and then you can go Trick-Or-Treating.

As the Jack-O-Lantern's face is facing you, look near the bottom of the left side for a black slide switch. Slide it down to turn the lamp on, and slide it up to turn the lamp off.

To feed this product, turn it face-down, and look for a light brownish-grey battery compartment. Slide the door on it toward the switch until it comes off, throw it on the porch, and stomp on it with steel-toed work boots...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the two used AAA cells from it and recycle or dispose of them as you see fit.

Insert two new AAA cells into the compartment, orienting them so their flat-ends (-) negative face the springs for them in each chamber.

Slide the battery door back on, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad you didn't stomp on that battery door now?

Current usage measures 27.6mA on my DMM's 400mA scale.

This product is meant to be used as a seasonal novelty lamp in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, used, and abused; so I won't try to flush it down the toilet, bash it against a steel rod or against the corner of a concrete stair, let my housemate's kitty cat's ghost go to the bathroom on it, run over it with a 400lb Rascal, or perform other indecencies that a regular flashlight might have to go through.
So this section of the web page will be significantally more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Photograph makes the pumpkin itself and the center of the hat brighter than they appear.

That red spiral thing on the wall behind this product is from an American DJ Laser Widow.

Test unit was purchased at Wallgreens on 10-15-05.

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.
