Behind the design

We found that the ‘flames’ in our earliest prototypes looked sharp and even a bit scary. So we experimented with other materials for a softer, cozier effect. The solution was inspired by another classic Christmas decoration: tinsel!

    Exceeded my expectations. It's quiet, has a soft crinkly fireplace-like sound, and the lights are more relaxing than I expected. Kiddo (11) chose it, made it, and only asked for help a couple times.



    My soon to be 8 year old daughter says, “This is fun!”



    My son loved putting this together and it turned out even better than anticipated. It is so pretty!



    This is a precious build!



    My 9 year old daughter loved it! She said, "It was so much fun!!!"



    Love this kit! Fun and festive and love the motion and sound of the fire.
