Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Please enjoy the cheesy music bed I chose. :) This is a hard lamp to film, but here's my best attempt.

It's not bad! Looks better in person than in pics. It's actually very neat to watch. I got this from Amazon for $18 shipped.

EDIT: apparently, this is supposed to have GLITTER in it. Either the glitter is dissolved, or Lava Lite's idea of glitter is different than mine. There is NO glitter in this lamp. There IS white "stuff" in there - looks like the same kinda stuff that's in snow globes.

Amazon is EXCELLENT with returns. That, I know. The box of this lamp does indeed say glitter. I double-checked. However, I wouldn't put it past Lava Lite to say/show one thing and do another, as evidenced by their product renderings of their Clearview lamps which show the switch on the front of the lamp when in reality, it's in the back, near the power cord. 

I may just write LL and see what they say. I'd prefer glitter...

Erin, in my sifting through the ebay pages, one of these came up that said, "new style, doesn't get as hot", so I'm wondering if your initial thoughts on them making 2 different styles might have been correct.  If you're thinking about a return, I would first either email LL or give Susan a call and ask her what she knows about this.  That way, if there were 2 styles offered, you can opt for the one that has the glitter.  I don't see why glitter versus no glitter would have anything to do with it becoming hot or not and not quite sure the person that listed the ebay sale had their info straight, but just a thought.  I do know I've heard Amazon is pretty good as far as returns from people that I know use them a lot.

Ah, interesting. Thanks for the info Vox. I just may try a return since I really would like to have glitter in this tornado lamp.  But it makes me wonder if this is what the glitter turns into after several months of sitting. :-/

When I got the cloudy emerald Clearview from them they exchanged it for me, all shipping covered by Amazon. When the replacement arrived cloudy I put in for another exchange but they instead informed me that they would dispatch a return label and I would get a refund. I told them I would rather have a proper lamp than the money back, they then just gave me a refund and told me to dispose of the lamp if desired.

I agree.  Sometimes it's just not worth the aggravation.

There's no way I'm opening this up. I did think about it, but you're right - I'd have to find the right glitter and hope it didn't stick. Also, the top is sealed, so I'm sure I'd break it in an attempt to fix it. :P

Erin, could you pop the top and add glitter?  I know you probably have to use special glitter for something like that because it involves going into liquid, but hummm???

Comment by Erin on August 25, 2014 at 7:26am

Yeah, I just think this would look much cooler with glitter! I don't know... if I have to pay to ship it back, I'll just keep it. I paid through amazon.com with my CC.

Guess what? Id make a call to LL and complain and also to Amazon!!! I would demand they pay for shipping to return it as its probably old stock and sat somewhere, possibly hot. See if they will send you a return postage paid sticker. Did you pay through paypal? You can open up a grievance through paypal or claim it on their insurance as damaged i believe.

Huh, ok, this is weird. It *IS* supposed to have glitter in it. I just went and checked the box. It says glitter on it. I'm guessing what I'm seeing is faded or partially dissolved glitter. So, yeah, that kinda sucks. :(
