Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use my parol outside?

Our parols are not water proof and have electrical components that can be damaged by water. The parols do come with a plastic covering but this does not completely seal the parol. Because of this we recommend the parol to be used indoors - although many of our customers use their parol on their front porch and have no problems. You are welcome to remove the plastic if you want to keep your parol inside but please know the plastic offers extra protection.

What if my parol is damaged in shipping?

First we make sure that we pack the Parols the best we can, but in the event of accidental damage, we request you to contact us, as soon as possible (within 7 days of delivery). Please keep all packaging materials so the parol can be returned safely. We will first request photos of damages and the packing materials, then provide return label at our expense. We purchase insurance through a 3rd party for all of our parols so please be patient while we assist you - we are here to help! Need not to worry we will replace your Parol or will refund you if it no longer available.

Wholesale availability

We do offer wholesale opportunities for individuals with REGISTERED BRICK AND MORTAR BUSINESSES. If you are interested please feel free to message use.

Are these 110V?

Absolutely! All our parols are 110V and perfectly suited for use in the US/Canada

Such a cute book that helped introduce the culture and tradition to my son!

I’m always in search for Filipino children’s books for my daughter. This one is very cute. Love the illustrations.

Great little book for young ones to learn about a Filipino tradition.

The seller did a good job of packaging and sending the item. It arrived in great condition. The story, however, is not well done. It can’t decide on verb tense or rhyme scheme (or if it rhymes at all) and the illustrations, while well drawn, are very stilted and spare. A page that describes looking out at the stars shows no stars, only the moon. The reader is expected to know the word ‘Lola’ but not ‘parol’. The author had a good idea but the execution was lacking. In general, I would not recommend this book (the seller is great though).

Can’t wait to gift this to my niece!
