Koolights Rabbit & Puppy Review

Our family has recently been joined by two new little animals; a puppy and a rabbit. Don’t worry, not real ones. Koolight versions. Koolights create beautiful and unique interior lighting formed from individual shapes that slot together with a bulb inside. I’ve honestly never seen anything quite like them.
