These solar powered yard lights were a bit pricey in my opinion but they are very cute and practical. I love adding things to my yard to give it my own personality and these are much better than the boring stake style solar lights that many people have in the yards. I bought a few of these, along with some cheaper solar lights, for our back yard after getting our dog. He is a black lab and disappears into the night when letting him out to go to the bathroom. These lights help provide enough light to be able to see where is he and what he is doing (make sure he is not digging) outside at night. These owl lights recharge well during the day with regular sunlight and remain lit for the entire night. We have had them for about seven months now and they still hold a charge pretty good. They do have an on/off switch as well if you want to leave them off certain nights and save the battery energy. They are lightweight enough to easily move about the yard but not so much that they will blow over or away.
