I'll say upfront that I haven't yet used this light. It is a gift I purchased for my daughter for Christmas.
I did open the box to see the quality of the little desk lamp and I liked what I saw! It looks like it is fairly well made and like it will be durable enough to survive in a preteens room. It is very cute! I love the little bunny ears. The pencil/pen holder built into the base of the lamp is a great touch and adds to the usefulness of the desk lamp. It provides two things that I needed for the top of the desk my daughter will also be getting at Xmas time.
I will try to remember to update my post once we have tried out the light.
