You already know and *heart* our Long Distance Friendship Lamp, but have you met its companion, the bridge? They're pretty much BFF. The small connecting device hooks your lamp up to the router so you can send love at the speed of light. Here's why you might need it: 1. If you purchased the "classic" friendship lamp (not the one-step design). 2. If you already had a bridge and it broke or you want a back-up—never hurts! Made in China.
