Let it Power, Let it Sense, Let it Glow!

The ornament has a series of LEDs that fade on and off in an eye-pleasing pattern and plays the familiar song “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” via a small buzzer when the button on the back of the board is pressed.

The brightness of the LEDs adjust to the ambient light in the room in order to keep the brightness appropriate to the surroundings. Additionally, there is a low-battery detect feature as well as a 4 hour time-out alert to remind the user to turn off the ornament and avoid depleting the batteries.

The ornament is powered by two AAA batteries and is light-weight enough to prominently hang on a tree via a hole at the top of the ornament with the included ribbon.
