Really wanted to love this but sadly misses the mark. Got 2 for my twins and neither lasted a week. The problem is just poor quality which was surprising from this brand. (One light had a coil spring break loose inside and the other one’s button got stuck. Both from normal kid play within a few uses.) I found a better light in the “light my way” nightlight by a brand that rhymes with bunchkin. It’s a one-button, cool-touch, soft-glow light that’s stood the test of time and even has a timer so it always shuts off on its own if left on.

I bought this flashlight for my 2 year old granddaughter. It does NOT turn on. I have tried 3 sets of batteries and extending the spring but nothing works. Is it possible the spring is suppose to attach? My spring was loose inside lens cap when received.

Doesn’t work. My son was so excited when he opened it, but when we put batteries in, it didn’t work. Reading the reviews now, it seems to be a very common problem with this item. We have a lot of Melissa & Doug items we love; not so much this. I’ll have to pick a different brand flashlight as now that I’ve read the reviews I don’t want to just replace it with another defective one.

Excellent flashlight. The batteries lasted for years, Even after left on for days. Kind of a weird running joke in her family. To change the batteries, look for this small screw in the side of the lens ring. Unscrew that, then push in the plastic safety tab and the body of the flashlight. Unscrew lens cap. Replace batteries (two AAs), then I recommend you stretch the spring a little bit to esure proper tension/contact. Switch the flashlight into the on position prior to reassembly, then twist the lens bring back on until it is snug and you see light coming from the flashlight. If you over torque it, it may not illuminate, or may flicker. Find the sweet spot where the light is stable without flickering, then reinsert the screw and tighten it. I hope this is helpful.

Batteries Don't Stay In Place

Andi - 1 year ago
The batteries don’t stay in place, so if you jostle the flashlight at all the connection is lost and the light doesn’t work. So you have to take off the top and adjust the batteries back into their little connection spot. So dumb. It’s used by kids so obviously it should be more sturdy than that.

I've bought 2 of these. The first didn't work at all, the second one, the button gets stuck and it won't turn off. It's so cheaply made that it's honestly not worth the money. I am annoyed by how poorly made this product is considering the brand has consistently put out quality products.

We are about to go camping and decided to change batteries to ensure it doesn't die. Unfortunately after unscrewing replacing batteries It doesn't come on now at all. Very frustrating. Changing batteries shouldn't be this difficult. I wouldn't purchase again and is a shame since it's a perfect and adorable kids flashlight.

My 5 yr old & 3 yr old grandkids loved these. Easy to turn on & off.Just right amount of light, doesn't blind you if it shines in your eyes. Adult will have to follow up to make sure they are turned off to save the battery (which by the way is very safely secured, The compartments are screwed closed)

Flickers

2 out of 5 stars
- 3 years ago
originally posted on Melissa and Doug
First off, before I read these reviews, one of my favorite aspects of this flashlight was the child-proof battery compartment. But apparently I'm the only one! Lol. Cheaper "adult" flashlights often pop open if dropped, so it's nice to have no worries about leaving this alone with my 3 year old. He's definitely not going to get the batteries out! Anyway, I was still very disappointed that after having this for only a few weeks, the flashlight began having issues flickering. Very disappointing as I am used to high quality products from M&D.

I had this sitting around since i bought it 2 years ago. Y Tried to install batteries then, and twist the cap back in “just so”. Had no luck and put it back in the package for another time. Just took it out again to give it another try. New batteries, cap just so. No luck. Until I banged it a few times. Most likely it won’t work long and I’ll throw it away. Was surprised to see this is still being sold to be honest.
