"As far as I can see the additional stuff is only the on/off switch. If you have a voltage meter you should measure the voltage between the two white joints. If you have plain 3V there then you can cut off the white wires. I don't know if…"

Modifying battery operated building

What I am working on here is a Heartland Valley Village Gazebo from O'Well 2010. It has a battery box for 2 AA batteries. It has some additional electrical stuff (see pix) so I am unsure how to go about wiring it to accept an adaptor. I have rewired battery operated street lights to accept adaptors in the past. I am just not sure where to splice in on this set up.Any help for me here?…See More

"The Mt. Gloom Observatory is pretty cool. The skull rotats and the telescope eye lights up. Flashing lights and sound of course. $99.00. Hope to find a coupon. This is a must have."

"After doing some research I found that strings of Christmas lights on houses didn't appear until the mid 1960's. So the movie was keeping true with that time in the 1940's."

Did You Know?

A customer came in the other day and pointed out that there are two versions of Ralphy's house. One has Christmas lights along the porch and second story roof. The other version only has them along the porch roof. Strange thing is there were never any lights on the house in the movie, but if you look at the house today you will see the lights on the porch roof. What version of Ralphy's house do you have? You better check. :)
