We used this lamp to play Hot Potato at my daughters birthday party. It was sturdy and held up well to lots of little hands. The lid opens on a hinge, so it doesn't get lost which I thought was a nice touch. It is a good size, and a great deal for the price. I was planning on having the lamp itself be the prize for whoever won Hot Potato, but my daughter begged to keep it, so we used a different prize.

Sharp edges, plan to file...
The plastic molding doesn't line up well; has sharp edges- can scratch you/others and snag costume... had to file but didn't take long. Okay for the price. Overall, happy to have found this out there!

Cute, but pricey
These lamps were a cute item on the magic carpets that I made by hand for Jasmine/Aladdin Theme Party. They are very sturdy, and the top flips open. The lamp is a great purchase, but almost $5 each.... A bit pricey!

These are a great tie-in for an Aladdin party or play, but there is a problem occasionally with the base breaking off during shipping. One of the 10 I purchased had the base cracked off, and the replacement that OT kindly sent me at no charge had the same problem. Fortunately, I was able to hot-glue the base back on (it was more a separation than actual cracking-off on the replacement), and it appears to be stable. Not sure how the lid will hold up, but these appear to be attached pretty well. One suggestion you might find helpful is that mineral spirits will remove the inked manufacturing information that is inexplicably stamped on the visible side of the base, instead of underneath, and it takes the label information off without marring the gold finish of the lamp in any way.

Amazingly good quality
This lamp was bought as a creative decorating project for an adult retreat. All participants greatly enjoying adding jewels, stickers, sequins and ribbons. Plastic is thick and has a good heft to it. Very happy with purchase (it came very quickly). Lid opens and hinge is good.

Arabian Nights Prom
Good decoration, reasonably priced for my school's prom. Quality is typical for Oriental Trading, its not museum quality but for one event, it gets the job done.

Excellent quality for the price
This lamp was perfect for my daughter's "Princess Jasmine" birthday party. It is sturdy and very realistic. The top even opens so you can put something inside. All the kids loved it. It was the perfect accessory for my co-worker from India who dressed up as Princess Jasmine.
