Lights Accurately Recreate the
Look of Real Fireflies in Backyards and Homes"
Fireflies, also called
Lightning Bugs, light up a magical evening
and are truly 'Magical Fireflies'. Welcome!
You've just discovered the amazing Firefly
Magic® Firefly Lights that have
been developed to accurately recreate the life-like
flashing, flickering, and fading of Mother
Nature's real fireflies in your yard or garden,
all year long.
So special and realistic are these
patented and award winning electronic firefly
lights that they're used by Universities for
conducting their firefly research. In addition,
Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights are used in
theme parks, natural science museums, zoos, hotels,
restaurants, on stage, and in movies to accurately
replicate the look and feel of Mother Nature's

I have the solar powered 12 light model
in 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....
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 about bugs!
was at my house the other evening and
we were standing at the BBQ. Greg did
not know that I had installed your
firefly lights in my bushes. At dusk,
my firefly lights started up and they
look just like the lightning bugs coming
perfectly sober, ran to the bushes
and caught one of the lights. He didn't
say anything, just ran and did it.
You should have seen the look on his
face. He was pretty darn confused that
he would chase a lightning bug, knowing
there was no such thing here - but
it just kicked in and he did it. We
had a great laugh. Thanks!

Microchips bring Firefly Lights to Life . .
Fireflies can't tell the difference!”

Magic® Firefly Lights Reduce
The designers at Firefly Magic® Firefly
Lights 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 my eyes".
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® Firefly
Each Electronic Firefly in
a set of Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights is
located at the end of an individual, small diameter,
sunlight-resistant, dark brown wire that is UL

attached to blend seamlessly into your landscaping.
The Electronic Fireflies come in
7 or 14 Firefly light sets with different length
wires to allow effective spacing of the fireflies.

LITTLE GIRLS ATTEMPT
TO SAVE A FIREFLY"
After hooking up the Firefly
Magic Firefly’s in a Hawaiian Fern in
our yard, it was about a week later that I
was watching the kids…looking and pointing
as the magic flashed and flickered in the breezy
I noticed 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.
The moment came, and she caught
it, she paused for a brief moment, and then
came running to me as fast as she could, saying…” Uncle
Joe, Uncle Joe, come, come quick one of the
firefly’s is stuck on a wire”
P.S. ‘’Only in a child’s eye…
do we stay young.’’

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
Thank you again for being a
great customer support. It's rare these days.
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
"I border a bog area so
I mounted the (Firefly Magic) solar 'lamp'
on a tall pole, so it would receive sunlight
as the 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
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

Your product is great and I am sure that my

It took a sweet while to get here but the wait
was definitely worth it ! (These Firefly

Netherlands and had to go through international
customs which took a little longer than we
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...

Your fireflies really make me
feel like like I'm back home in the States.
You really accomplished a carbon copy of nature

"Firefly Magic Lights are
indeed 100% accurate! ...or as Mary Poppins
would say,'They're supercalifragilisticexpialidocious'
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

the backyard they're shocked when they see
fireflies right here in the San Fernando Valley!

your FireflyLights." Sean Taylor
