Turn a Big Lamp on and it turns on Little Lamps which you’ve given away, anywhere in the world.
Use the Good Night Lamp to tell a loved one ‘now’s a good time for a chat’, ‘I’m thinking of you’ or ‘call me when you get home’. You decide. As your family grows or moves away, you can add as many Little Lamps as you want.
