Bought for gift. But I wanted to make sure it worked, unboxed and read instructions. First surprize that I did not know or see in any pictures. This is an electric lamp and has a cord I thought it was battery operated. It takes several hours to heat up first time use to melt the waxy substance. I read you are not to leave on more than 8-10 hours or it could harm or damage. It gets extremely hot, do not touch the lamp base! I think it would burn your hand or what ever it touches. I was going to give as a gift to my grandson, but he is way too young to operate. This lamp needs to be kept away from small and younger children! It works great, so far! I hope to remember to shut off after awhile of watching it . I hate to think what would happen if left on overnight? It only cost $20, but it's a gift, I think I will keep because of fear of what could happen. Damage to the lamp or injury to a child, we must supervise and not leave this lamp unattended. I will update review in 30 days or more after using a dozen times or more. I am not ready to reccomended this lamp for safety reasons.
