I have always loved Lava Lite products, and very fimiliar with the way they are supposed to operate.
I was excited to see Target carried them at a great price, since the place I used to get them at is now closed.
Plugged this in and turned on, after 3 hours the Lave just collected at top of globe, no movement.
The folks at Lava Lite should go back to original formula.
I bought this lava lamp about a month ago and right away it was terrible. the liquid is more yellow than white and the lava stuff is not even black its more of a plum color. it's absolutely hideous. there is stuff on the sides of the lamp that dont float up with the rest of the stuff and it just doesn't look attractive. go to spencers instead and buy a good quality lava lamp... don't waste your money on this.
I guess I shouldn't have expected much from something that only cost [$$]dollars. Very poor quality lava lamp. The light bulb socket was crooked in the base. There are little specks of wax stuck all over the inside of the globe that do not come off even when the lamp is warmed up. The wax is darkish purple, not black. The liquid is kind of murky with little particles of something floating around in it. Please don't waste your money on this product.
The first time I got it, the lava lamp worked perfectly. Then i had a sleepover with my friends and the lava was frozen in a position, the water then drained out so we got a new one. the new lava lamp works perfectly. It's still pretty AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
