Need them to be safe (ie wont get hot to the touch).
Cant find any I like in Bl Marv, Habitat, J Lewis etc. Anywhere else I can look? (Ebay has too many, cant faced looking at pages and pages...)
WOudl prefer simple ones, not cars/trains/aliens etc!

Oh, lots of cool LED lights on here. LED takes little power, so safer I assume. Tempting to light up house like a Xmas tree...

Like the planes DrN, but yes pricey! Will get those if I cant find anything else.
Had a vague idea of paper ones (lanterns maybe) as they give a very soft light but cant find these anywhere, has anyone seem these anywhere?

no let him get used to the dark!

katybump Sun 19-Aug-07 22:01:37

have you tried ikea?

Pannacotta Sun 19-Aug-07 22:04:53

We are miles from IKEA and they dont deliver here or I woudl look there (as always ...)
The room is dark (faces North) so the lights are to brighen it up a bit more than anything...

How about plain blue or white xmas tree lights?

Hathor Sun 19-Aug-07 22:07:23

Aha lanterns!

I love lights.

Hathor Sun 19-Aug-07 22:08:00

Oh but they are in USA.............

Pannacotta Sun 19-Aug-07 22:10:52

The Boats ones are cute Hathor but poss bit bright (its a bit tasteful the nursery, sorry, am v fussy and bit anti plastic so wanted sth simple/paper if poss) and yes the other place is American. I love lights too just cant find what I want!

Hathor Sun 19-Aug-07 22:15:53

White paper lanterns!

Pannacotta Sun 19-Aug-07 22:19:14

Wow Hathor, they are FAB!
