Happy Holidays, everyone.

My girlfriend recently purchased a Hallmark legacy ornament for our tree, circa 2000. The ornament is powered and intended to plug into a string of incandescent lights by removing a bulb and plugging the ornament in instead. Of course, this is 2021 and guess what? Our tree has built-in LED lights that are not compatible with the ornament.

So I'm looking for any type of advice on how to power this ornament. I suppose we could purchase an older-style light string to facilitate powering the ornament, but the lights would look out of place on our tree and I don't think you can simply remove the other bulbs and still have the string work. Even if you could, my limited knowledge of all things electrical tells me you'd probably damage the ornament if it was the only user of current through the string. I thought about perhaps rigging some type of battery-powered device. Unsure of how difficult that would be.

On the box it suggests a miniature light string with push in-type bulbs. It also states the typical electrical rating is 6V, 1.2W. Is the battery idea feasible? Or is there some other type of plug in power supply I could rig to get this ornament to function? It would mean the world to her.

Thanks!
