"Woman's Leg" Nightlight, retail $7.98 (www.lighterside.com...)

Last updated 06-19-10

The "Woman's Leg" Nightlight is modeled after the woman's leg-shaped lamp that became broken in the movie "A Christmas Story". It appears to look just like the real thing; only a whole lot smaller.

It uses a standard C7 candelabra screw base bulb and is not equipped with a light-activated "day/night" switch, so any nightlight bulb (LED or incandescent) will work in it when the supplied one blows out.
It is supplied with a transparent, colorless C7 incandescent bulb, so you can use it as soon as you receive it.


First, plug it in to any standard 110 to 130 volts AC two- or three-slot standard (in north America anyway) household receptacle.

Turn it on by pushing that lever on its front to the right. until it clicks
Turn it off by pushing the same lever to the left until it clicks.

Since this product is designed to be operated from 110-120VAC, this section can be skipped.
Therefore, I don't have to tell you which part to remove, flush away, and then tell you not to.

Because this is a night light and not a flashlight, the punishments I bestow upon flashlights will not be bestowed upon the "Woman's Leg" Nightlight. 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 who's sole purpose in life is to be a flashlight.

I can't remember exactly *HOW* the "leg lamp" became broken in A Christmas Story, but this lamp will not become broken in that fashion or in any other way for that matter.
Not intentionally, anyway.

Photograph of the unit in operation.

Test unit was purchased from the Lighter Side website on 09-18-07, and was received on the afternoon of 09-19-07.

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: 10-17-08
This nightlight has failed.
I tried several bulbs in it; even checking them by installing them in another nightlight, but still no workie.

I noticed this several months ago, but it wasn't until now that I performed more extensive testing on it - including testing it with a DMM for continuity (it failed this test quite handily ).

UPDATE: 06-18-10
This product has inexplicably started functioning again.
I found that out when I was testing this product and this product as well for inclusion on my website.

UPDATE: 06-18-10
No, you aren't seeing things.
Yes, a terrible same-day update.
Much like what happened in the movie, my leg lamp is now busted.

Breakage occurred when I was attempting to place the "light" portion of the product back in the "leg & lampshade" portion.

I'm attempting to effect repairs with white household glue.

UPDATE: 06-19-10

This is the repair I made. Seems stable enough; so long as I do not manhandle the product.
