Product information:

All Little City Lights products were designed and made by Little City Lights. All products are made of card, and are therefore quite delicate. We provide detailed, step by step instructions with all our products and encourage buyers to contact us if they have any questions about their product. Please be advised that flame retardant variants were treated with a water-based solution. While each flame-retardant product is dried and straightened extensively, they may differ slightly in the way the card feels during assembly. For this reason, please take extra care when assembling flame-retardant products. Please carefully read the entire instructions enclosed in the product packaging for general guidance on product use.

Product safety:

This product is not a toy. Assembly may require a penknife or another sharp object. Adult supervision during assembly is required. This product should never be left unattended with a light-source inside. It should be used exclusively with adult supervision. 

 

This product may be used ONLY with low-voltage, battery-powered LED lights (not included). Do not use this product with any other type of electrical component.

This solution is non-toxic, non-flammable and water-based. It is intended for use on card. It has passed dermatological tests and is used widely on lampshades, lanterns and similar products. The solution has passed safety tests in the UK and EU.
