The Black Cat Bobblehead Lamp w/LEDs is a Halloween lamp designed to be put indoors somewhere where people can gently strike or swipe at its head; this causes the head to "bob" back and forth and/or side-to-side.

The lamp features at least six LEDs that change colors; this causes the cat's eyes, whiskers, and bow tie to change colors (works best in dim conditions), and it feeds from an included AC adapter supplying a very low voltage - this totally eliminates the risk of Trick-Or-Treaters putting their "widdle" fingers where they don't belong and subsequentally getting zapped.

In the second photograph above, you can see the cat's tail - this shows you that the lamp was not modelled after a Manx cat; those kitty cats are usually tailless.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use the Black Cat Bobblehead Lamp w/LEDs, just plug the small plug on the end of the "wall wart" AC adapter into the female receptacle for it at the back of the "cat" near the bottom, and plug the large end of the AC adapter into any standard (in north America anyway) 110 to 130 volts AC 60Hz two- or three-slot household receptacle (outlet).

Slide the small black slide switch near the AC adapter's receptacle to the "ON" position (to the left, as the back of the "cat" is facing you) to turn the lamp on.

Slide the same switch in the other direction (to the "OFF" position; toward the right, as the back of the "cat" is facing you) to turn the lamp off.

This product is exclusively AC-powered, so I don't have to tell you which part to remove, chuck into a graveyard so that the stinky rotting zombies find it & relieve themselves on it, and then rather emphatically tell you not to.

This is a seasonal (Halloween) lamp, not a flashlight designed to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toliet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of an outdoor patio, use a small ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them.

It is probably not very water-resistant at all, as the packaging materials indicate that this lamp is "for indoor use only".

The cat's "head" is mounted to its "body" by a fairly beefy spring, so that when the head is gently struck or swiped at, it "bobbles" for a number of seconds afterward.

Photograph of the lamp, illuminated of course.

You can see the LEDs change colors, and then you can see me gently strike the product's "head" so that you can see the "bobblehead" action.

The AC adapter is labelled to output +4.5 volts at 200mA.
Polarity is the standard center (+) positive, outer can (-) negative.

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.

UPDATE: 10-31-08
My sister asked if she could purchase this lamp from me after Halloween because she collects cats; of course I said yes because she's family. Therefore, the dreadful "" icon will soon appear next to this product's listing on this website to indicate that I no longer have the product for future testing, comparisons, or analyses.
