Tree Dazzler Review

Tree Dazzler is advertised as a way to quickly decorate a Christmas tree with an impressive LED light show. Rather than manually placing a long strand of lights on your tree, this set of 8 light strands is installed in seconds as a single unit. There is a ring which is placed over the top of the tree, and eight light strands hang from this ring. Once you place the ring over the tree, you simply position the vertical strands, and enjoy the show.

You can control the light show with a 3-button control, which allows you to choose from steady, sparkle, or show. The lights on this set are significantly larger than standard tree lights (supposedly 5x larger).

Overall, Tree Dazzler should perform as advertised, and offers an inexpensive way to quickly adorn your tree with lights. Keep in mind that this is an As Seen on TV product marketed by Telebrands, a company which currently holds a C rating from the BBB. Telebrands is one of the largest As Seen on TV marketing firms, and has produced some of the more popular offerings in this genre. Their products tend to range from average to below average durability.

With that in mind, if you’re looking for the light set featured on Shark Tank, this is not it. Tree Dazzler is the As Seen on TV knockoff of that product, discussed below.

Although Tree Dazzler may work as advertised, it’s difficult to recommend this over the original product in this category, known as GeekMyTree. Other than price and local availability, Tree Dazzler holds no advantage over GeekMyTree, which offers a more robust light show, superior durability, and responsive customer service.

Alternatives

Tree Dazzler is the As Seen on TV knockoff of Glowflakes by GeekMyTree, a $120 light set that was featured on Shark Tank. There are superficial similarities between the two, although GeekMyTree offers a more robust light show and larger lights. The makers of GeekMyTree have produced a short video showing a side-by-side comparison of GeekMyTree vs Tree Dazzler.

This isn’t the first time Telebrands has created a knockoff of a product still in its infancy. The company has been reportedly sued over 50 times, including a high-profile 2015 lawsuit in which the creator of Bunch O Balloons claimed that the Telebrands product Balloon Bonanza infringed on their patent.

    This looks exactly like Geek My Tree’s lights except for the innovative (American designed & made?) controller that Geek MY Tree features.

    It’s clearly a rip-off of the GMT concept and designed to make it CHEAP! Kind of like those Star Shower Laser Lights that are also a rip-off compared to much better units available. I just saw a pallet of Star Showers in a store last week.

    Is Bed, Bath and Beyond the retailer for Tree Dazzle? I guess if some people can not or will not step up to superior quality and want to take a risk, then Tree Dazzle is there for them. Buyer beware! They had to cut corners somewhere.

      Do you work for Geek My Tree?

      • Spiral

        Even if he/she does, all points are valid, so whats your point?

        • tlajj5

          First off, his name is Ed, so its a he! Second, almost all products sold have a similar product…….The Tree Dazzler has lots of good reviews online and the main one is that it is a quality product/made well. So Ed is lying by trying to scare people saying corners were cut! Apparently, he is wrong!

          • Traci Stubbe

            Not true. I think you’re over reacting a bit. The entire product review says the same thing he did and they don’t work for GeekMyTree.

          • tlajj5

            We just ordered the product and it seems well made! We can’t see any so called short cuts, in the least. My brother is a master electrician, and he said it was a well made product. I trust his opinion. If he had any concerns I would not use it in our home!

          • Lisa Wheeler

            It seems the side by side comparison speaks for itself. I know I love my tree to be so bright it could be seen by a NASA satellite. I doesn’t seem like Tree Dazzler would provide this. Question…do you use more than 1 set? If so, how do you hide the bulky stacked rings at the top??

          • tlajj5

            We just ordered it so we haven’t put it on our tree yet. We have a very full artificial tree so I don’t think hiding the ring will be an issue.

          • Lisa Wheeler

            Ours is full and artificial as well and 8′ tall. I hope it gives you the coverage you desire. I’ll probably stick to the old school lights. I literally assemble layer by layer starting from bottom and lay my lights as I assemble. It’s waaaayyyy easier than assembling the entire tree then string the lights. Merry early Christmas and hope you have a wonderful Holiday season. The picture is a picture of a picture but gives you an idea. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/219c978bcabf39847678e5479f03817f5a6498fa0671695dacbf071caf7a09d1.jpg

            Wow…..gorgeous tree! Merry Early Christmas, to your family, as well.

  • Leslie Clark

    I actually like the smaller lights on the tree dazzler- the other just doesn’t look like a Christmas tree ought to IMHO!

  • Thayana

    Based on the reviews I have now read here and other places I’m going to buy the tree dazzler for one and one reason only. Price. I don’t know why Geekmytree thinks that a price of 229.00 (on amazon)is acceptable for their product because it pretty much blows my Christmas decorating budget out of the water. I have presents to buy for family just like everyone else, and even though I fell in love with their design (and yes I would have paid up to a hundred for a superior product) I just can’t afford their design. Yes I know that you pay for what you get. But if a master electrician (tlajj5 below) says this is a well made product, that’s good enough for me! I’ll get the other one or even better next year at a more reasonable price once they realize they’ve priced themselves out of the market.
