I’ve had my eyes on a 3DlightFX light for a while now and when I saw they were coming out with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line, I knew the time had come to grab one for my office. What I really like about these lights is the “bursting through the wall” effect they give where ever you put them.

I was a little nervous about installing it, because I didn’t want to screw it up (no pun intended). I was relieved when I saw that not only was all the installation hardware included, but the sticker that goes on the wall has the screw placement marked, so you don’t have to do any measuring and marking on the walls.

The sticker comes folded in the box so my advice is to smooth out the sticker with a heavy book before trying to put it on the wall. If you don’t do this, the sticker won’t come off the paper backing very easily and it will mess up the effect. If you don’t have the patience for it, hand over the installation to someone who does.

Of course, before applying the sticker, I would use a stud finder to make sure that once you install the sticker, you’ll be able to drill through to the wall.

The final look of the light is worth the patience it takes to put the sticker on. I wish the light was bright enough to read from, but I’m happy with the subtle glow it gives. If you’re thinking about this for your kid’s room, it makes a perfect nightlight for over their bed.

The 3DlightFX Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lights come in all four turtles retail for $29.99 and are available at Target stores nationwide.
