They have been around for 30 years or so...I bought mine at a KMart about 4 yrs ago.

They measure 5 inches long...2 in wide. :)

I like the strings of lights, that have shorter strings hanging down from them. Not only does a whole section burn out after you hang them on the gutters, but they can tangle themselves up much more efficiently, than a normal string of lights.



And why do the little monsters come all rolled up on a plastic grate, that refuses to let go of each individual light socket? I think they package them like that, so that you can ruin the string, right out of the box.



Then there are the packages that have the strings all tightly wrapped in a solid wad of wires & bulbs. Then they put a MATCHING wire tie wrap around it, Shove it in a bag, give you two sub miniature fuses, (specifically designed to become instantainiously lost if their dropped in the grass,) and two replacement bulbs. One of which is a flashing bulb, that you don't really want anyway.



Then there are those ugly tags, that are made of plastic, that you just can't simply rip the tags off. Oh NOOOOoooo. They have to be made of plastic and shiny holographic materials, plus all sorts of warnings, written in at least a dozen different languages. When all you really want to know is how many sets you can string along together, without blowing the microscopic fuses that you've lost out on the lawn somewhere.



Nothing says Seasons Greetings, like a man cussing up a storm in front of his neighbors, while putting up miniacle Christmas Lighting.



Then, you find that the neighborhood has pitched in to buy you a straight jacket, sedatives and a three-month membership at the nearest Snapped-Cap Asylum.



But I degress.

Wow, now those are huge and nice. Will be very good outdoors or in a large sitting room.
