All of these 5mm strobe and slow fade light types come in a variety of colors so you can easily match them to any type of display you are creating.

To explore our full collection, you can shop with us online today, or you can get in touch with our team to find out what the perfect lighting option will be for your situation.

Some fun ways to use 5mm strobe lights and slow fade lights:

  • in a synchronized light show
  • make your Christmas tree look like the Rockefeller center tree in NYC!
  • Use DreamSpark to highlight a mantle or in your garland around a door or down a stair railing
  • Wrap QuadSpark around a tree trunk and branches to make it spark



The SuperSpark strobing light strings are our best-selling 5mm LED lights, and with good reason! These aren’t your standard twinkle strands with a subtle on and off. These lights strobe quickly and randomly, with a true pop! All 50 bulbs strobe independently of each other, causing fun and exciting patterns that look great wrapped around a tree or as an addition to any display.





If you want the pop and sizzle of the SuperSpark but with a little bit more subtlety, then the QuadSpark is the right choice for you. On these strands, instead of every bulb strobing, only every fourth bulb strobes - and the strobing bulb is the same color as the static bulbs on the string. IE on a string of blue QuadSpark you will have 3 static blue bulbs followed by a single blue strobing bulb and the pattern repeats. This creates a fun twinkling effect that adds movement and excitement to your display, but doesn’t look like a crazy dance party.




In the same vein as the QuadSpark, our Dazzle line performs the same function, but with a little bit of variety. While the QuadSpark strands are all one single color, in our Dazzle strands, the strobing light (every fourth bulb) is always a cool white bulb. This gives off an effect like twinkling stars on your display!




Warm White DreamSpark

If you love movement and variety in your lights but the strobing is just too intense for you, then you’ll love our DreamSpark options. These lights offer smooth fading transitions, so you won’t feel like you’re looking at constant camera flashes. Rather, each bulb on the string slowly fades in and out randomly - a bit like a field of slow motion fireflies. These lights may be ideal for indoor usage or partnered with other lights to add some texture and variety.
