Awesome product

These lights are so easy to work with and the Rainbow LED strip is a great way to get all colors needed for a project. All lights worked and lit up brightly. I would definitely buy them again as well as other LIlyPad products.

Great for wearables and small projects

These things are awesome for discreet lighting effects. They are easy and self explanitory, and are great for sewing into clothes. It did some wearable lighting for my daughter, as well as used some a couple years ago for lights on her dollhouse (which also server as a night light).

Easy and Fun

Very easy to work with and lights up very colorful and bright. My 10 year old really enjoyed making her dance glove with them.

Great product, great service

Easy to snap apart, durable, and easy to use! Product arrived on time and well-packaged. I used them with students as young as first grade, and those tiny fingers found them easy to understand and place. I know this sounds glowing like the inside of some kind of hallmark card, but honestly this product made me smile waaaaaay more than a stupid card.

Works great with my freshmen

First project with sewing circuits for my high school class. These are sturdy, they all work, easy to work with and sew.
