I really didn’t know what to call this thing! Years ago I found the Mickey figure alone at a yard sale but couldn’t get it to work. Just recently I found the complete item at another yard sale and it all works perfectly.

Let’s have a look:

Mickey Prospector Night Light 005

Mickey is a bit messy!

This is a combination ‘toy’ for a boy or a girl who might be afraid of the dark. First, the gems, treasure chest, and lantern light up to provide a nightlight. This can be battery-powered, but if you intend to leave it on all night, there is a 3 volt DC input.

Mickey’s head also moves

As you can see, Mickey can be lifted off the base and used for a flashlight for those late visits to the bathroom. Or fridge. Hey, I’m not judging!

Lights would show up better in complete darkness

Once you turn the Mickey figure on, the light shines. But when you place him on the base, a switch turns the light off until needed. And what fun can you have with Mickey’s light?

It’s a heart! (and can you see the rainbow?)

Now let’s see what we get when Mickey is closer to the wall:

It’s a smaller heart!

Or some weird interdimensional portal. We will ever see Mickey again?

Before we continue, I should mention that there is no manufacturer stamped on the base or figure. It simply says ‘Disney’ and ‘Made in China’.

Battery compartment is in the backpack (2 x AAA’s)

Oh but we’re not finished with the batteries yet!

Battery compartment (2 x C’s) and bulb compartment

This was hard to photograph well due to the flash washing out the lights. Without the flash, it wasn’t light enough to get a good shot. But I hope you get the idea!

Here is one last shot of Prospector Mickey on his base, tipped back just enough to light up his heart-shaped lantern:

Mickey will light the way!
