We can ship to anywhere in the world.
Information for customers outside North America
You need to have a plug adapter( not a transformer) to your wall outlet as the wall outlet is different in each country. It should cost only a few $.
We will include a bulb which should last 3000 hours, which is quite a long time.
But if you want an extra bulb when we ship, we can include it for $2.00 extra.
We suggest you find those from any electrical store or Amazon.
1 Socket adapter :E12 to E14
2 European type bulb : Clear Torpedo tip 220 V Chandelier bulbs 25W (or different wattage as you like. The higher the wattage, the faster the spinning speed)
Unfortunately we can find only North American type's socket in Canada so this is one thing we have to ask you to do, if you want to use our lamp for many years to come.
How long will it take for shipping?
USA and Canada customers, please allow 8-12 business days for shipping. International customers, please allow 4-6 weeks by surface and 2-3 weeks by air.
If we are not able to ship your order right away we will notify you by email.
Can I specify a different shipping address?
Yes. You can add a Shipping Address during the checkout process.
Can I send a lamp as a gift?
Yes. We will put your name as the sender and can put a note inside the box for no extra charge. We do not put an invoice or receipt in the box, but if you are in US, we will have to declare the value on the outside of the box for custom purposes.
How does Magic Lamp work?
The heat of the bulb creates a hot air current that rises upward. The hot air then goes through the vent of the cylinder, making it spin. As the cylinder spins, the image on the cylinder projects on to the rice paper screen, making the images almost come alive! And because there are no mechanical parts, the lamp spins silently. Visit our How it works page to learn more.
Can I change the design of my spinning lamp?
Yes. Because the cylinders are interchangeable, simply order a new cylinder from us. You do not need to buy the full Magic Lamp each time. Select "Cylinder Only" when making your purchase.
I see an option to add a kid's name. What is this?
Glad you asked! We will customize your lamp with your kid's name up to a maximum of 10 characters. Only $5 extra! Select Add name and enter the name you would like added.
I have an idea for a lamp. Do you make custom designs?
Yes. If you send us a description along with three or four photos of what you would like we would be happy to create a custom lamp. The cost of a custom lamp is $110.00 (US) plus applicable tax and shipping. Please call us at 1 (604) 251-7601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your custom designed lamp.
Does Magic Lamp project images onto walls?
By design Magic Lamp projects images onto the rice paper, but the paper can be removed to allow the images to project onto walls. You will need to position the lamp close enough to a wall for the images to be visible. If you would like to order a spinning lamp without the rice paper.
This option does not work with a name option as the name will go backwards on walls.
Is it safe to leave the spinning lamp on for a long time?
Yes. Magic Lamp uses CSA and UL certified hardware. We do however recommend that you turn off your Magic Lamp when not in use. The cellophane may shrink or fade over time as a result of keeping the lamp on for prolonged periods of time. Turning the lamp off when not in use will also save energy and extend the life of the bulb.
What if the cylinder stops moving?
Check that the lamp is on a flat surface
If there is a shelf or other object above the lamp, it may hinder the hot air current going up
Make sure the lamp is not near a heating or air conditioning duct
The cylinder should not touch the rice paper screen when it spins. If the cylinder is misshapen, try reshaping the cylinder with both hands. Or insert a roll of toilet paper with some fabric around it into the cylinder, and let the cylinder sit until it is round again.
The glass part of the cylinder should sit on top of the metal wire, and the metal wire should not touch any other part of the cylinder. If the metal wire is touching any part of the cylinder other than the glass part, the metal wire needs to be reshaped.
What if the cylinder spins too fast?
Place a firm sheet of paper across the top of the spinning lamp
Replace the existing bulb with a lower wattage bulb (such as a 25W bulb)
What if the rice paper is torn?
You should be able to make a repair yourself as our lamps are handmade. But if you want to replace the paper please contact us. We can send you a repair kit with simple instructions on how to make the repair.
What if the bulb burns out?
You can find the same bulb at a hardware store except California State . Just bring the old bulb along and find a match, or show it to one of the hardware store staff for help.
What if the glass part comes off?
You can glue it back on with contact cement or super glue. Choose the one that works for glass and paper. If you lose the glass top contact us for a replacement.
All Magic Lamps are carefully packed in a double carton, and shipped using Canada Post.
