Holiday Parties Are on the Rise

And like a busy superhero (or Santa Claus) might, we are doing all we can to get out those Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, and-all-other-holidays/birthdays-in-between, their due respect and light-up toys.

We’ve been so busy getting in so many new items and yes, they have been selling like hot cakes. For those of who do not know what hot cakes are, please do not search the term “Hot cakes” in Google, especially not Google Images with children around (You never know what you’ll get). Hot Cakes are old school pancakes, made from scratch, and tastier than any pancakes you’ve ever had in your entire life. Basically, Flashing Blinky Lights are the Hot Cakes of the toy world. In fact, next time you see one of us, call us “Hot Cakes.” You won’t get slapped, we’re cool.

So, whether you are into getting some light up toys for your Halloween party, Christmas party, Thanksgiving dinner party, and/or your New Years Celebration, any Holiday party honestly, where you can really light it up, we’ve got everything you’d ever need.

Halloween is next week, so for those of you planning to be Iron Man, Batman, Psy, or Driver, know that some good ol’ fashioned blinkies can do the trick. For more on that, check out our section for Halloween light up toys right here:

Skipping ahead to those end of year Holidays? Christmas and what-not? Our Christmas Light Up Toys section has just the inventory you’ll need:

Or maybe the New Year is more your style? Planning on hitting up the Cosmopolitan on the Strip or Times Square? Bring anything from our New Year Light Up Toys Section:

Anyway, is just our way of saying “Hello” and look out for our things on Halloween, or better yet, get some so you won’t feel sad when all you can do is look on at everyone else loving their life that much more. Those Holiday Parties are waiting for you.

Until next time!


DIY Light Crafts: Add Light Clips To Halloween Glitter Skulls!

Good day, crafty ladies & gents.                                                                                       Back with more DIY light crafts for fellow Halloween party animals.  Today’s topic: Halloween Glitter Skulls & how to make them look WAY more awesome.

Halloween Glitter Skulls & other Halloween shapes made of styrofoam are all the rage right now + inexpensive as all get out.  Found this cute skull & spider topped headband at Michael’s Craft Store.  Accentuated it EASY with 2 slow color change “Aurora” light clips.  Just remove the tiny pads that come on each clip (for use as LED earrings), stick the clips out, then shove them into the eye sockets of your Halloween Glitter Skulls.  BAM!  Whammy!  Get ready for compliments, fashionistas.  If you’re partying extra hard while wearing something like this, just add some glue to the light clip backing & you’re good to go, a.k.a. dance that booty off without losing your lights!  untz, untz

A little background on the Aurora clips, for they are my favorite & good for so much more than Halloween glitter skulls:  they’re named after aurora borealis, that magical light display up in the northern skies.  Dreamy to the MAX.  Not only do they make for unique party earrings, but I clip them into up-do hairstyles.  Add a few scattered flashing light clips to give the illusion that your princess hair is sparkling, or fill your up-do hairstyle with a bunch of Aurora lights for a futuristic glowing ‘do.  The slow movement from color to color is easy on the eyes, plus the white cap over the LEDs dims them just a bit; essential if you’re wearing these in a darkened room or dimly lit bar.  Our Aurora lights are definitely more subtle vs. our other flashy colors with clear caps.

OK, back to sprucing up our website with more fun new holiday stuff for you to check out!

‘Til next time, craft heads.                                                                                                  TCB & DIY ~                                                                                                                           ~ Nikki

Welcome to the week, my Illuminati, the Illuminated ones.

Not that Illuminati, the other ones, the ones who like to have fun.

Anyway, since you are illuminated, it wouldn’t hurt to get you illuminated further, right? Last week, we not only updated you on what was to come, but now I have other announcements:

Our first commercial is ready to get released virally, as soon as we are able to spread the word effectively. Once we are ready, it’ll be ready. It’s not complicated, expansive, but it is illuminated, as well as simple. You’d like it.

Also, go here for a new product review: The Night Owl Mama – Cool Light Up Flashing Blinky Light Products for Night Time Fun

Safe Fireworks: They Light Up 4th of July But They Do Not Burn

A Light Up Party that does not have to involve fireworks on 4th of July makes for a very happy and content set of parents as well as children who get to not only have fun, but come out unscathed on July 5th. In fact, one can be safe and fun without any fireworks.

Yet all this emphasis on safety and we have yet to scratch the surface on how exactly we can have a potentially fireworks-free party (leave it up to your neighbors and their smuggled fireworks) with just as much craziness. Because “safe” and “fun” can be synonymous.

First, the drinks: Because why settle for anything less than bright and crazy? Adults, drink your beers (and root beers, young’ns) in one of our Red, White, and Blue Light Up Pilsner Glasses. Then take the burgers, chips, potato salad, and Jell-O, and serve it up with a side of awesome light-ups!

For the great outdoors, a few things will be perfect to light up the streets: Firstly, pictured at the top of this post, you really do need our incredibly popular light up, Light Up American Flags. And what good is a big party if you can’t accessorize? A Sequin Red, White & Blue Tie do the trick. Since we love both swords and America (I hope you also love both), you’ll want a few Red, White, and Blue American Swords, and you’ll thank me later. All of these things are sure to trump fireworks with how safe they are. Might as well call them Safe Fireworks, because they light up but they don’t burn.

Now, you’re probably asking about things to wear and decorate? If not, I’ll tell you anyway.

Red, White & Blue Hawaiian Light Up Leis!

Red, White & Blue Light Up Noodle Headbands!

Red, White & Blue Light Up Mohawks!

Red, White & Blue Cool Shades LED Sunglasses!

And guess what, friends? All that and more can be found right here: 4th of July Flashing Blinky Lights!

Well, this blog was made to inspire and since I know these products, I know it will have inspired you to be safe but do not that let hold back your block party and fireworks displays, just let it keep you mindful of the wonderful light up options we have. Your peace of mind and sense of fun will thank you for it.

By the way, is it possible to copyright the term “Safe Fireworks”? I love it.

Flashing Blinky Lights Illuminates Our Troops – Kuwait, Memorial Day

Flashing Blinky Lights Helps Remember Our Fallen Heroes:

When we sold our light up products, knowing they would go to Kuwait for a Memorial Day service, we had no idea what was to come of it. Today, Donna, our lovely sales rep responsible for said sale, received pictures on what went down.

And yes, it’s as wonderful as you think it is going to be:

We’re proud to have been a part of this.

Thanks to our troops overseas and everyone who supports them!



Reasons To Be Blinky — Flashing LEDs, The Environment, and You…

I write this to you with great pride in that not only are LEDs “fun as all get-out” (which no one has said since the 1970’s) but, guess what, they are completely energy efficient as well.

So, this is where it begins:

An LED lamp, for example, has around 100,000 hours of life in it. Left on continuously, that’s around 10-11 years of usage. Now, take into consideration that LEDs also convert, if well-made (like our’s), 80% of the electrical energy into light energy. That means they are 80% more efficient than electrical lights. True story.

If we convert to LEDs for all of our light needs (minus what the sun can afford us), imagine the impact we could make on energy in America. Think of it as an 80% savings in electricity.

“But Andrew, where do we begin? There is so much to do to be able to convert!”

Well, Unnamed Fake Example Man, you start right here: Flashing Blinky Lights.

You’re welcome, America.
