These solar lights are awesome! I have 4 sets of these lights and they give off a beautiful soft intermittent glow. I would give them a 5 out of 5 if they came with a clip or clasp so you could attach them to whatever you like but I have used good old fashioned twist ties to tie them to willow branches in a pot I have on our deck. Sometimes you have to reattach them but over all they stay put. So Pretty!

Nice Little Accent Lights
I bought the Dragonfly version of these (they came in Butterfly, Dragonfly and one other shape). Each Dragonfly is about 3 inches from one wingtip to the other, so they are big enough to be seen in a bush. They are nice looking in a bush, and are a nice colour of blue and green. They flash on and off at night, which I thought was great since they are Dragonflies, but oddly this is not mentioned on the box anywhere. They are quite a long string, and there is a really long wire leading from the solar panel to the first light, which is nice because it allows you to put the panel farther away from the lights, or even outside a window or door to have the lights working on an inside bush or wall. The only thing I wish the manufacturer had thought of was to provide a method to attach the lights to a bush. There is no attachment, the wire just continues from one light to the next with no alligator clamp or grip to hold onto the bush. I tried to sit the lights in the bush, but they fell out. Then I tried using thin coated wire (like what you use on bread bags, etc.) to "clamp" the two wires together below each lamp and around the branch. This worked but the weight of each light made the lights fall over upside down. Finally I got some children's hair grips (the kind that have little fingers and open when you squeeze each side together) and glued them on the bottom of each Dragonfly and this works perfectly. My Cdn Tire store is sold out of these now but I might get more sets next summer. The solar panel is nice and large too, I find my lights work all night long, and recharge well even in cloudy conditions. As other reviewers said, these lights are not bright, but give a nice soft illumination as an accent light.

They work great indoors too!
All the comments shared by other reviewers are true, these are great little lights. When I was redecorating my 13 year old daughters room I bought the butterflys and flowers, mounted the solar panel outside her window and strung the lights in her room and it looks great and she loves it. As mentioned in some of the reviews added by others the light is not strong and they do fade on and off which when used for indoor decorating is good. I also have a couple of strings outside that are a few years old and they continue to work all year round. The colours do fade but they are still cute.

Worth $13 for sure
Bought the flower lights before camping and they were very fun to string in the bush at our campsite. They did fade in and out though, which was not mentioned on the box. It created a nice effect.
Then we forgot to get them out of the bush before leaving (present from us, Park Ranger Paul).
I bought the butterfly kind to replace the lost ones and they are solid lights (no fading in and out). Kinda weird that some fade in and out (not mentioned on the box) and some are solid. Seeing as they are just plastic bits attached to a light string, there is clearly something in the light string that makes some fade and others be solid?
Either way these are super cute and look lovely. They don't actually light much up though, they are for decoration only.

I have nothing bad to say about these lights as long as they are used as an accent and not thought of as a utility light.
I installed 2 sets in a shady part of my garden by running the charger to an area that got partial sunlight. the did not stay on all night, but were good for all the time before bedtime.
Here's the kicker, I forgot about them and left them outside all winter. on the days when the snow did not cover the charger. THEY WORKED ALL WINTER...it was very very nice to see the little sprarkles peeking out of the snow covered branches in Dec. and January.
Bought 3 more sets yesterday..anything that adds magic to a winter garden it worth every penny!

So impressed! I have the butterflies and dragonflies. Great addition to any camping trip. Easy to use both in the tent and outside. You will save SO much money on batteries cause a flashlight won't be needed.

Wanted either the dragonflies or the butterflies, but both were sold out at my local CT, so got the flowers.
Only complaint is nowhere does it mention that the lights cycle on and off 5 on, 4 off, 4 on, 5 off. They don't stay on solid.
Would be nice if there was a button to switch between cycle mode and 'full-on' mode, but otherwise, cute product.
Just bought them, so can't comment on durability or quality.

These lights are adorable and they work well. They do not give off a lot of light though.

Very pretty lights
Got these for camping. i have a large tree and I have them spread all over it..They look so nice at night and give off good light. I also got the butterfly ones and place the inbetween the leaves of another tree so it looks like butterflys are sitting on the branch..
Very nice lights
