I received my lamp today. First thing I noticed what that the shipping box had a hole in it but i wasn't to worried because i figured the item itself would be inside of its original box. but it was not. I opened the shipping box and there was the lamp. Just sitting there. got lucky that the hole in the box was no where near the cloth lamp shade because if it had it would of been damaged. It makes me feel like it was one of the items they bought back from a customer which according to the site this was suppose to be a new product. So i pull the lamp out and realize the plastic that is suppose to protect mario is not on him but under the lamps base. So I gave it a look over no real damage can be seen there is a red crayon mark on one side of the lamp shade but it's small so I can deal and it works when its plugged in. like really works. I accidently blinded myself for a few secs. Other then the way it arrived it truly is an amazing buy. Love it!!!!!!
The lamp makes my kids room alot brighter than their previous spider man lamp, this is a great purchase. My 6 and 5 year old play with the Mario toy set up I layrd out around the grass portion of the lamp each night before lights out for the day.
