The Introduction of LED’s
The timeline of light bulb invention is a facsinating read if you are into that kinda thing, however lets skip it and get straight to the point. LED’s (light-emitting diode) came along and changed the world. They are cheap to manufacture, small and able to emit light in a particular direction which meant they didnt need reflectors and diffusers. Simultaneously, solar panels were getting better and smaller. One amazing day (it might have been a Wednesday), some bright spark combined the two and we were intoduced to the wonders of solar powered garden lights. A brilliant invention by anyones standards!
Of course, the leap to solar powered fairy houses was inevitable from that point, and this is were we hit a wall. Because, in our little corner of the world, the very thing that powers the light is the same thing that deteriorates the product that it is contained within. That puts us into a bit of a pickle.
We initially delayed the introduction of solar fairy houses to our range. However, in the real world businesses survive by listening to their customers, and we began stocking them. Their loveliness is not in dispute here, we love twinkly things and the dazzeling array of designs and colours in the range.
Here is the thing about care instructions: people usually read them after their products are damaged from not reading them in the first place.
