Colourful Lanterns

A few weeks ago, SIL bought lanterns for the gals at Jaya Jusco. They chose the one they like and here’s their pick...

Battery-operated plastic lanterns that come with music and colourful blinking lights. Nice, eh? :)

They happily came home with their lanterns and thereafter, they were seen playing and lugging their toys around the house the whole night.

This ‘fish’ lantern belongs to Sharlene. It can even 'swim' once you place it on the floor!

Low grade batteries were included. They only played with it for about one or two days and the batteries already gone flat. So for the time being, the 2 colourful lanterns are lying somewhere in the house waiting for the arrival of Mid Autumn Festival, which is just around the corner. The gals are looking forward to carry their ‘beetle’ and ‘fish’ around the neighbourhood again. Looks like I need to get them some new batteries soon.

Did these come with annoying loud music? I would normally put a tape over the "speaker" if it does. Drives me nuts. Hehe.

Oh yes, mumsgather is right...those music really irritates me to the max too! ha ha...I like that children and adults gather together enjoying the night on the 15th.

The lantern is so nice. We bought one cheap one where we need to put candle in it.

I also find the music annoying.. esp if it's faulty after a while and the sounds goes a little "off"!!

So I got Elyssa a simple one (with LED light) and no sound :)

Now got a lot of fancy-looking batt-op lanterns. At least the fish looks a lil tradisional. :)
