The light stick was immediately sold out (a notice about that showed up on the official store the product was available from). The official store of Dreamcatcher was previously opened on XOfficialShop in August of 2020.
The Dreamcatcher light stick is currently the biggest out of all fanlights of any KPop artist. With the length of 785 mm it dethroned past number 1 on the list - the Loona light stick, which is 435 mm long. The collectible has a transparent sphere with some beautiful red accents at the top, and a handle composed of three elements - the main part of the handle, on which you will spot the name of the group written in gold along with a turn on button, and two extensions. A text is wrapped around all handle parts.

All you have to do is to unscrew the bottom cap and connect the parts together. The regular size of the item is 90 x 90 x 282 mm. The size of the extensions stick is 34 x 34 x 271 mm. The dimensions of the longest configuration are 90 x 90 x 785 mm.
The version 1 of the Dreamcatcher light stick can produce light in four colors including white, blue, red and yellow. It can work in two different modes - lighting and flash, although the second one is available only when using white light.
Unlike the majority of the KPop fanlights, this one uses an internal battery instead of 3 or 4 AAA batteries. You have to unscrew the sphere to get to the battery. Its capacity is 2000 mAh and it needs around 3 hours to be charged (it uses the voltage of 5V). The light stick can operate for a maximum time of 5 hours.
