You get a lot of these little flashing lights . You can use then many different ways. I am go it to use them at Christmas time this year for our Christmas dinner and have some on the table flashing. These lights work great and they are durable . The quality of them are great .I have has 2 sitting a little ways from me since i got them this morning in the mail at 10 am it is now 11:15 and they it is still flashing just as good as this morning . So they do indeed last a long time . They flash different colors and they a nice and bright . There is a tab on the one end of these lights that you could tie them with a string and hang them . Out of the 50 lights i got only 2 didn't works .
