want to say thanks for such a great product.
I have the solar powered
my backyard and it is the best. I am originally
from Illinois and lightning bugs are in my
blood. I put the firefly lights in my hedges
bordering one side of my yard and they look
so real, let me share a story . . .
I have a friend,
Greg Dziem, who has a master’s
degree in entomology from Cornell University
and, more importantly, we grew up together
in Illinois and experienced a childhood together,
many times catching lightning bugs on warm
summer nights. Greg has been living in California
for over 20 years. He is a smart guy, especially
He was at my house the other evening
and we were standing at the BBQ. Greg did
know that I had installed your firefly
lights in my bushes. At dusk, my firefly
started up and they look just like the
lightning bugs coming out!
Greg, perfectly sober, ran to the bushes
and caught one of the lights. He didn't
say anything, just ran and did it. You
have seen the look on his face. He was
pretty darn confused that he would chase
bug, knowing there was no such thing
here - but it just kicked in and he did
We had a great laugh. Thanks!

Firefly Magic® Firefly
Lights Reduce Stress?
The designers at Firefly
Magic® started with stacks of research
on Arthropoda: Insecta: Coleoptera: Lampyridae,
the scientific name for Fireflies, or as
some call them, Lightning bugs. The challenge
came in converting the research into realistic
looking electronic fireflies that have
the same color, size, flicker, and flash
as Mother Nature's own.
But after years of thought,
design, development, and testing the results
surpassed everyone's expectations. Some
researchers spent hours just staring at
the cute little firefly lights, swearing
they were reducing their stress. We don't
make that promise. But we do say that these
firefly lights will be the hit of your
party or gathering!
People have described FIRERFLY
MAGIC® Firefly Lights with
words such as. "Amazing", "Fascinating", "Mesmerizing", "Entertaining",
They're Great", "Unbelievable", "Just
Love'm", and "I can't believe
What is a Firefly or Lightning Bug anyway?
During a visit to California
one of our researchers spoke to a number
of people at random, and the results were
surprising. Many people had never heard
of a firefly. While some said they knew
about them, they confessed of never seeing
real fireflies. However, many of them had
seen the 'make believe' fireflies at Disneyland's
'Pirates of the Caribbean' ride. more
One of the true beauties
of Nature, enough cannot be said about
fireflies. Dancing along just above the
blades of grass or in the bushes and trees,
fireflies use their little bioluminescent
lanterns to flash messages to each other
on warm humid evenings.
Not really 'flies' at all,
fireflies belong to the beetle family of
insects, scientifically known as Arthropoda:
Insecta: Coleoptera: Lampyridae: with 23
genera and over 200 species in North America
alone. Worldwide it is estimated there
are over 2000 species of these wonderful
creatures, also known as lightning bugs.
In most cases, the flickering
and flashing of fireflies is used to communicate
between the male and female in preparation
for mating. And, with so many different
species, each one has its own distinctive
flashing cycle rate that distinguishes
it from members of the other species. In
addition, different species of fireflies
have different color flashes.

"Firefly Magic is just that ...
Magic. They have consistently been the highlight of
every party we have had in our backyard. As great as
their product is, it is surpassed by their customer
service." Dr. Tom Wright
"This has been a fantastic
buying experience. I'm absolutely delighted in
quality of your product and exceptional service
you provide your customers. You can bet I'll
be sending every admirer of my new fireflies

"I border a bog area so I
mounted the (Firefly Magic) solar 'panel'
on a tall pole, so it would receive sunlight
cattails grow. I then strung the (Firefly) lights
and clipped them to the growing cattails so they
could keep moving up and not be blocked by new
growth. Well, last night, I had a very pleasant
surprise. As I sat on the deck, watching the
lights in the bog, I was amazed by the numbers.
As it turned out, the (Firefly
Magic) Firefly lights had attracted many real
fireflies. It was the most amazing sight. We
have always had fireflies, but never in these
numbers. Each night I plant myself on the deck
to watch the dance that goes on. I am so amazed
that the lights have attracted so many real fireflies.
Just wanted to pass this on. Thanks
for making such an innovative and quality product." Marge Anderson,

hooking up the Firefly Magic Firefly’s
in a Hawaiian Fern in our yard, it was about
that I was watching the kids…looking and
pointing as the magic flashed and flickered in
that one of the younger girls was trying to
catch one with a plastic container
from one of the lower branches as it swayed,
waiting for that moment of flash.

a brief moment, and then came running to me

"I just placed an order
online for two more Firefly Magic sets to add
three we ordered last year.
We've installed the first sets
along the creekbank of our vacation home in the
Arizona mountains. Being originally from the
Midwest (as are most of our cabin neighbors),
we are amazed at the perfect match of color and
interval that your fireflies have to the real
ones back home!" Randall Kincaid
"I ordered your product a
while back and it still works great after more
than a year, even in the extreme heat and moisture
of the harsh, Florida climate. I LOVE your product.
It adds so much charm, mystery and atmosphere
to our yard. We plan on ordering more soon.
We're a radio station that plays
Jazz music from the 1920s and 30s, I'm certain
that many of our US and international listeners
would be interested in purchasing your fun product,
and I'd be happy to recommend it to them as a "green
fairy" related product. Thanks!

Message received by our Custom
"I received the Firefly lights yesterday. I want to thank you for your
great customer service. You were awesome!!!
I also want to thank you for getting
these lights to me by this weekend so I can set
them up for my party next week. You and Firefly
Magic are one of the best companies I had the
privilege of working with. Once my friends see
these lights next week, do not be surprised with
a bunch of orders coming in at the same time.
:-) Once I figure out the rest of my garden,
I will be ordering more for myself.
Thank you again for being a great
customer support. It's rare these days." Regards,
Woodland Hills, CA
"Wow!! I put up the lights around
some vegetation by my pool and it is simply fantastic!
I spent an hour just staring at them--they are
exactly like the real ones!!! Man, if I had a
big way to show these little things off I can't
imagine anyone with any type of landscaping wouldn't
buy them -- they look just like the fireflies
I always see when I travel to the Amazon or Uganda,
since we don't have them in California. These,
with the true colors of fireflies, are even better
than the ones in the Pirates of the Caribbean
ride!!!! I'm just thrilled!!! :-)
"I bought a set of (Firefly
Magic) firefly lights and installed them for
last night's patio party. They were a total hit.
They fooled several guests who grew up in the
mid-west, and honestly thought I had imported
real fireflies into my garden. I only wish I
had ordered 4 or 5 more sets because I could
have sold them all in a heartbeat. Thanks for
selling such a unique and fun product." Sincerely
"Thanks again for offering such
an awesome product!!! You wouldn’t believe
how many compliments I get on them (Firefly Magic
Firefly Lights). " Alissa Thompson
Filmore, CA Cabin Project
"Thanks for the rapid reply.
Your product is great and I am sure that my buddy
will love them. The way you guys deal with matters
and people is nothing short of professional.
It has been a pleasure dealing with you and will
recommend your product to everyone I meet. Thanks
again and keep up the good work." Shawn and Laura Muir
"I just installed my first
My two girls tried to catch the Fireflies... (and) my wife and I thought
it was very humorous. I have told several individuals about your product
and you should see additional demand." Loren Shumate
"The fireflies arrived today.
It took a sweet while to get here but the wait
was definitely worth it ! (These Firefly
Magic Firefly Lights were shipped to The Hague,
Netherlands and had to go through international
customs which took a little longer than we all
I took them out of the box right
away to see what it would look like in a darkened
room. Absolutely astonishing !! Though there's
really only twelve fireflies, it looks like there
are many more...
And then the way they flash, flicker
and fade just like the real thing, awesome !
Your fireflies really make me
feel like like I'm back home in the States. You
really accomplished a carbon copy of nature !
Congrats and thanks a million." Frank Visser
The Hague, Zuid Holland
"Firefly Magic Lights are
indeed 100% accurate! ...or as Mary Poppins would
and practically perfect in every way.
I've tried the other firefly light
sets with little fans attached but those are
really cumbersome. Firefly Magic Lights are so
well made they surpass any others on the market.
And the 3-AA battery version is absolutely brilliant
and easy to use!
Thank you so much for making Firefly
Magic Lights available to regular consumers.
I'll definitely be back later to buy a third
and fourth set. Not to mention spreading the
word to all the Disneyland fans on the many online
message boards!" Sincerely,
"The color is perfect!" Sherrie Schmitt East Lansing, MI
"When my guests go into the
backyard they're shocked when they see fireflies
right here in the San Fernando Valley! Thanks
for adding so much fun to my parties with your
FireflyLights." Sean Taylor
