Aldi has been known to sell both practical and unique lamps from time to time. We own a few, including the Easy Home Coloring Changing LED Desk Lamp and the Easy Home Torchiere Floor Lamp. In our experience, Aldi lamps are generally reliable and effective, and they light up the spaces we need them to light up.
Recently, Aldi rotated some novelty neon-style lamps into the middle aisle. They caught my eye with their whimsical shapes and bright colors, so I got one for one of my kids’ bedrooms.
The Huntington Home LED Novelty Lamp cost $9.99 each at the time of publication. At the time, it was available in unicorn, rainbow, pineapple, or cactus shapes. I bought the pineapple one.
These lamps are all Aldi Finds, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Aldi does not offer online shipping after a product sells out at your local store, so don’t delay if you want one of these lamps.
Here are some details on the lamps, according to Aldi:
- Available in Unicorn, Rainbow, Pineapple, or Cactus designs
- LED light with neon effect
- Includes 4-hour daily timer
- Battery or USB powered
- Requires 3 AA batteries (not included)
- Unicorn measures 9.5″ H x 8″ W x 4″ D
- Rainbow measures 9.84″ H x 7.84″ W x 4″ D
- Cactus measures 10.5″ H x 5.5″ W x 4″ D
- Pineapple measures 10.75″ H x 5.5″ W x 4″ D
- Made in China
The lamp came with a try-me button so I could see how it lit up in the store while it was still in its packaging. Once you get the lamp home, the manual says to remove the try-me button before using the lamp. The button is attached by a thin cord to the back of the lamp, and you can remove it from the lamp’s base by simply giving the cord a gentle tug.
To operate the lamp, you’ll either need three AA batteries, or you can plug the included micro USB cable into the lamp’s base and plug the other end of the cable into a USB power adapter or a USB port on a compatible device.
If you’re operating the lamp using batteries, it runs on a four-hour daily timer starting when you install the batteries and press the “on” switch on the front of the lamp. Each time you turn the lamp off and back on, you’ll reset the timer. If you let the lamp run for the full four hours and it turns off, if you want to turn it back on before the next daily four-hour cycle, you’ll have to take the batteries out and put them back in to reset the lamp.
The manual recommends not using polishes or other cleaners on the lamp. Instead, clean it with a soft, dry cloth or static duster.
The manual also offers contact information for after-sales support. You can call 1-844-470-7970 or email [email protected]
I haven’t had this lamp long enough to really put it through the paces, but my first impression is that this is a really cool lamp. I like the novel pineapple shape, and it’s bright when turned on, but it’s not a lamp you use for lighting a room or even small space like a desktop. Instead, it’s more of a mood light that provides some fun ambiance. It also runs cool to the touch.
I liked the pineapple lamp enough that I went back to Aldi and bought the cactus lamp for another kid’s room. I’ll update this post later with any new developments regarding the lamps’ functionality and longevity.
The Huntington Home LED Novelty Lamp comes in whimsical pineapple, unicorn, rainbow, or cactus shapes. It’s a neat accent piece for any bedroom, office, or anywhere you want to add a fun touch of décor. So far, we really like it.
