Kohree Real Wax Flameless LED Candles with Full Function Remote Control

I have reviewed a number of flameless candles recently, some that I loved, some I wanted to, and some that fell just short. The Last pillar candles I reviewed from Ohuhu fell just short, but based on my experience with Kohree products, I had much higher hopes. And for the most part, these Kohree Reaal Wax Flameless Pillar Candles with Remote Control are my new favorite flameless pillar candles ever.

To start, they are covered in real wax, so you should probably not put them on a hot surface or in bright sunlight for extended periods of time. You have a choice between a “constant on” feature, and a slow “flicker” effect from all three. You can even control the bightness! Low for a more relaxed setting and high to really brighten up a corner or accent table. Powered by 3 AAA batteries (sadly, not included. Insert sad face here!) each, they will run for quite some time before needing to be replaced (or, if your clever, recharged!). And because it’s a flameless candle, there’s no mess, no smoke, no hot melted wax to be worried about. And it’s always the perfect height and size, it’ll never melt smaller or irregular. The included remote is full-function, so you can adjust the brightness, the setting, and even the pre-designated timers of 4 and 8 hours! And the best part about them is they look just like the real deal. The last pillar candles I tried from Ohuhu would change colors, but the one color lacking was a true, actual “flame” color! So you immediately knew there was something off. With these Kohree Flameless Wax Candles, they 100% look and act like the real deal! They make for a great centerpiece to your holiday table, to any possible holiday decorating you could have in mind! And because they’re LED lights, they’ll last for years and years, and never need more than fresh batteries and quick wipe and they’re ready for the next season!

I really liked these Kohree Flameless Wax candles, and at just $16.99 for the set of 3, you could spend a lot more and get a lot less! The look and feel of a real candle, the convenience of a full function remote, and the low price, you can’t go wrong with these Real Wax Flameless Candles from Kohree!

Kohree Flameless Votive Flicker Timer Candles, 12-Pack


We all love the gentle glow of a candle, the soft flickering light, but hate that decorating with them can be dangerous, and means sometimes upsetting the entire scene every time to replace them, or if you’re like me and thought just a simple battery-powered version would solve all your ills, a “flameless” battery-powered candle would do. Until you had to turn it off and on, or replace the battery. Once again, everything gets mussed up. Kohree solved all those problems with their Flameless Timer Votives with Flickering Light. I think I’ve got a new decorating BFF.

DSC_0548

There are a ton of flameless candles out there, so anyone using actual candles with fire nowadays is, well…playing with fire. The technology is so good, the candles so realistic looking, that in my mind there’s no reason to not use flameless. And sure, you could spend a bundle on some with a remote control, and add it to the pile of remotes already on the coffee table. Or, you could give these Kohree Flameless Flicker Votives a try. What sets them apart is the built-in timer. Turn it on, set it down, and five hours later, poof! Off. And the best part? The next day it’s on again at the exact same time. Clutch the pearls! Talk about “set it and forget it”. And because they aren’t made of wax, you don’t have to worry about where you put them, or what you put them on. And the included (i just love that!) CR2032 battery will last you all season long, if not longer. While rearranging our mantle, I even joked with hubby to be careful not to burn himself, the candle was lit, and it’s so realistic he actually jerked his hand away as it there were flame. That’s a winner in my book.

You get 12 Kohree Flameless Flicker Votives with Timers for under $24 on Amazon (shipped free with Prime), and to me, they’re a steal. They’re solid quality and look like a million bucks, and I don’t see a single negative about them. They include batteries, it’s a long-life LED light, and they’re beautiful. Grab a set (or two) for your seasonal decorating today and beat the holiday rush!

Velocity Toy’s V-Thunder 1:14 Scale Remote-controlled Truck

We’ve always love remote controlled gadgets in this house. Hubby’s had them since he was a little guy, and I’ve played with a few in my time. They’re always good for some fun whether you’re 6 or 60. The only caveat to that is when they don’t work. Then they’re frustrating, horrible headaches that are a waste of money. I was hoping for the former with Velocity Toys’ V-Thunder 1:14 Scale Remote Controlled 4X4 Truck, but unfortunately what I got was the latter.

DSC_0419

Right out of the box, the V-Thunder Truck didn’t work right. It went forwards and backwards, but that was it. It wouldn’t turn. We tried everything we could, but the unit was defective. That wasn’t even the only failure. The “Sounds” in the form of music never worked. When we got the thin plastic shell off, we saw why: the wires to the speaker were never soldered. The red and blue LED’s in the wheel wells worked, but the anemic 6v NiCad battery pack could scarcely handle the functions of the truck, I can only imagine the amount of unnecessary drain on the battery those would be. And as I mentioned, the plastic shell around the truck is almost paper thin, but thankfully the bumper is sturdy, otherwise your first impact would also be your last on the body. The controls are poor, in that there’s no gradual acceleration at all. It’s full-power forward or no power, and with no steering, that ended badly every time. There’s no adjusting them, because the analog adjustment levers are molded on the plastic frame of the controls, and non-functional. It was also, for reasons I’ll never understand, covered in dirt and filthy out of the box. Odd.

For the price, you could do a lot better. Cursory glances around Toys R Us, Walmart and Target showed multiple vehicles of similar size, that probably work, for much less, sometimes less than half the price. If this were a gift, it would have made for a very unhappy recipient. I tried to contact Velocity Toys about this, multiple times. They directed me to contact “Airsoft Joe” for a replacement. “Airsoft Joe” had their auto-response on, and let me know they’d get to me as soon as possible. Multiple emails have yet to be answered since from either company. If I had bought this from them, I’d have felt like a fool, but thankfully I got a unit at no charge to test and review. So combine the defective product with poor to non-existent customer service and a blatant disregard for aftersales support, and you’ve got a product I not only don’t recommend, I’d avoid doing any business with them for anything in the future.

Ohuhu Real Wax Flameless Color-Changing Candles 3-Pack

ScreenHunter_04 Sep. 28 20.53

Summer has come and summer has gone, and fall has come back around again. With it comes brisk nights, chilled mornings, and best of all, warm drinks, cozy blankets and some of the best comfort foods we look forward to all year long. Mood lights become a must as the sun dims much, much sooner and nothing sets a mood quite like flickering candles. So when I got the chance to give some Real Wax Flameless Candles from Ohuhu a try, I thought to myself “Now that’s what I call timing”.

DSC_0266

Ohuhu makes so many great products for the home, for the garden, and so much more, but these Real Wax Flameless Candles are just something I’d never thought existed. So many times I’d wondered if I could hollow out a real candle and drop one of those nifty little flameless candles in it so it’d last as long as I wanted. And the geniuses at Ohuhu must’ve thought the same thing, because you have the best of both a real candle, and a flameless candle all in one. But Ohuhu went a step further and added a remote control, so you can set your moods from across the room without having to get out from under the blanket. I was sold there, but then Ohuhu turned it up to 11 and made sure they changed colors too. Amazing. With so much going on it was such a shame when I noticed after much fiddling with the candles and remote that there’s no setting for a simple, realistic yellow or orange “flame” color. And that’s such a shame because I wanted to absolutely love these, and did until they forgot to add a simple, natural flame color. Another pet peeve is that each candle takes 3 AAA batteries, and they included none. Talk about party foul!

DSC_0268

Taken as a whole, I like these candles, but I don’t love them like I wanted to. There’s a whole lot to like and if you don’t mind the lack of a real “flame” color, you may indeed love these yourself. And I need to mention the absolutely gorgeous little details included in what could have been a drab, ho-hum package. Instead of being wrapped in simple plastic of cellophane, Ohuhu wrapped each of their 3″ Color-Changing Real Wax Flameless Candles with a lovely little silver bow. Perfect for gift giving or just a tasteful and attractive storage option.

Mighty Leaf Tea : TeaTop Brew Mug and Vanilla Bean, Organic African Nectar and Green Tea Tropical #Review and #Giveaway

IMAG1872

I have a coffee travel mug and even a tea mug, but I have never tried a TeaTop Brew Mug until now. Like with coffee, I feel a fresh cup of tea is as desirable and even though tea holds it’s flavors and quality better than it’s counterpart, I still would like the option to brew as I go. The Mighty Leaf Tea Company not only makes this happen but the mug works perfectly with no mess or fuss. The tea bag hangs freely but you won’t lose the string, as there is a nice notch that holds it in place. When you have achieved the strength desired in your cup of tea, you simply just pull the tea bag up and the cup does the rest.  You even have a place to rest the bag away from your ready to drink tea. The insulated cup allows you to just sip and enjoy!.

Retail Price Point: $16.95 for a cup that let’s you make sure ever cup steeps perfectly every time, plus it’s snazzy looking.

When it comes to enjoyment, Mighty Leaf Tea sent a trio for me to try:

Mighty Leaf Taste of the Tropics Gift Sampler-

IMAG1980

  • Vanilla Bean
    A black tea base with a deep infusion of Vanilla Beans from Madagascar. This tea tastes as good as it smells and even though vanilla has warm notes, this tea’s flavor is so clean that you get a light and almost crisp notes. As much as I love Vanilla, it can overpower if not used wisely but that is something that Mighty Leaf tea was able to balance out with true perfection. Simple but left me craving for a second cup in no time!

  • Organic African Nectar
    This variety is tropical and almost fruity in flavor. You get nice herbal notes and a kiss of sweetness that makes you believe there is honey in your cup already. This tea uses a blend of rooibos leaves, organic hibiscus and dried blossoms. I enjoyed this blend cold by brewing a cup, allowing it to cool, and then letting it rest in the fridge to get ice cold. It went well with dinner and because it’s caffeine free, I did not have to worry on those late dinner nights either.

IMAG1978

  • Green Tea Tropical
    You have a green tea base that is accompanied by dried fruits and flowers. The blossoms are marigold petals and cornflowers.  The fruits are also not your usual citrus mixes like with other teas. Think pineapple sweetness with even notes of guava. This variety pushed all my other green teas a notch down and became my favorite. I love adding just a touch of honey to not take anything away from it but most times I just enjoy it as-is.

IMAG1872

Retail Price Point: The above trio retails for $30.00 and you get a generous amount of tea bags. Each box has 15 whole leaf pouches…..that’s 45 cups of happiness!
