The last time I actually purchased anything from Big Lots was in March. As it's been so long since I've checked their stock, everyone else may already know about these cuties:
The Clip-Lite comes three in a pack for $3.00 so they are comparable to buying the singular clip lights at the Dollar Tree. These, of course, are smaller, both in clip grip and ability to expand. Nonetheless, I think they are super stylish and the small design makes it easier to add to your 1:6 world.
A simple pull and the light detaches from the clip with no damage. Because of this, I can envision many ways to utilize the Clip-Lite with or without its clip. If you want to turn it into another object, like say an espresso machine, wall sconce, tea pot, etc., it's made from lightweight plastic so cutting it shouldn't be a complicated process.
One thing to note: there is a plastic sleeve around the batteries. When I turned on one of the lights, its beam was extremely weak. After I opened it up, I could see that the plastic sleeve was preventing a full connection. If you take that off and the beam is still weak, you got some dud batteries.
Enough with the technicalities, let's see it in use!
Sure you can clip it to things, but add a little HandiTak (also at Big Lots) and you can stick it almost anywhere. Here I've stuck it to my desk lamp. Surround it by an appropriate diorama, photograph it from the front and it would look like a street lamp.
Even though this and the Dollar Tree light use the same number of batteries, the Clip-Lite has a much brighter emanation and its batteries are replaceable (the DTree ones aren't). However, replaceable batteries aren't so important because it would be cheaper to buy another pack of lights than to buy batteries.
Due to my living in a hurricane State, I have quite a varied collection of lights. Since these little babies are clipable, compact and give off such a bright glow, not only will I use them for my dolls, I'll be adding several packs to my hurricane kit.
