Filimin vs Friendlamps: Product Comparison

Jun 14, 2021

So, you have a long-distance loved one and you want to be able to let them know when you're thinking of them. These days, there are lots of ways to stay in touch, but which one is right for you and the ones you want to keep close?

This is the question that John Harrison asked himself in 2014, when he wanted a way to stay connected with his family across the United States and Canada. Of course, there are options like phone calls, video calls, and texting, but it's not always easy to maintain an emotional bond through a screen. John wanted a simple way to let someone know you're thinking of them: no words needed, just a simple touch. That Christmas, John gifted his family the first Filimin Friendship Lamp – and we've been bringing loved ones together around the world ever since.

If you're starting to think that a Friendship Lamp might be the right way for you and your loved ones to stay in touch, you may be a bit confused by all the options for buying friendship lamps online these days. Many other companies now have their own versions of the original Friendship Lamp. So, is there actually a difference between all these products? No need to stress – we've already done all the research for you! In this article, we're going to break down the similarities and differences between the two most popular options: the original Filimin Friendship Lamps and Frames, and the Australian-based Friendlamps.
