Yes, the lamp is very adorable, but I'm rather surprised to find that no one else shares my complaints.
First, when we first received the product the positioning of the light bulb was such that it was nearly touching the paper surround. This didn't appear to be a result of damage - just poor design. So I added my own materials and rigged it a bit to ensure that the light bulb was well centered in the enclosure (heat + paper doesn't seem like a good combo).
Next, the lamp is so light that the weight of the cord is pretty much enough to pull it off the table it's sitting on. I'm not sure how others are getting around this? Velcro? Glue? Anyway, a very common occurrence for me was tending to our daughter in the middle of the night, looking for the switch on the cord and the lamp getting pulled off the table by the slightest nudge of the cord which resulted in me having to fumble for the light laying somewhere on the ground.
This happened once too many times and I finally destroyed the thing in a moment of rage. I then decided to test if my first point had any merit, so I applied a little flame to the material to see how it would react - it lit right up and the entire lamp was consumed in seconds. No more cutesy Lumisource paper lamps allowed in this house ever again.
OK this is an adorable little lamp. It is a tad on the bright side (relative to most nightlights) but it is perfect for our use - which is to keep an eye on a newborn who is currently sleeping next to our bed. We wanted something brighter than a typical nightlight but still dim enough to not be bothersome. We also have a 2 year old who I suspect will appreciate having a brighter nightlight once he gets old enough to start being afraid of the dark. The lamp is very cute and a fair value for the price!
This is a great value, especially if you're looking for a night light with a cord. Funny enough, my only "complaint" is that the light bulb that it comes with is a bit too bright. But, you can use a lower wattage bulb and they work fine. Overall, this is a very attractive and well made night light. I would definitely recommend.
