Magical Flying Lantern now reduced to £2.49 each

Also, 10 pack is available for £17.99 delivered,

Night Glow Flying Lanterns, also known as Sky Lanterns, will add an exciting new element to any event. Their mysterious glow can be seen climbing several miles in the sky for around 20 minutes. Flight ceases when all the fuel has been burnt and the flame subsides then as the air in the lantern cools it will gently float back to the ground for a safe landing. The Lanterns will fly to more than 1,000 meters in altitude, providing an amazing show for all ages.

Night Glow Flying Lanterns are safe, fun and spectacular for any outdoor event, great at Barbecues etc. Fuelled for 15-20 minutes of flying time.

These things are brilliant, got one for new years eve instead of fireworks.
If you follow the instructions, and it's not windy, they work great. hot
#3
These lanterns are great fun (especially if you set of a load of them at the same time!), but i'd ignore the bit about it being fuelled for 15-20 minutes of flying time...it will be out of sight in less than five :)
#4
Nice one - can't go wrong at £1.80 each so have ordered the pask of 10. Heat and rep added!!

If you want to send several up at once get something stick-like like a broom handle, whack it into the ground then rest the lanterns on top and light as soon as they get hot enough for lift they go up on their own if you light them quite quickly they'll go up together

I live surrounded by dry cornfields - I can't think of anything more dangerous.

I'm an air traffic controller, and these are a flippin nightmare. They look very similar in the dark and from a distance to distress flares, and of course you can't just assume it's another muppet sending a lantern into the sky so you've got to take all sorts of action. So that's why I hate them! Still voting hot though, because it's a fab price.

very ! i was reading somewhere these are causing quite a few problems not only setting things alight when they come down, i know they are sposed to burn out before they land but some dont, also i saw on the news a famers cattle had eaten one that had landed in his field.

I would assume that they would go out before hitting the ground! Also i bet the box says dont use on a windy day....
#12
I was thinking about getting these for my wedding in Barbados. Thought it would be nice for all the guests to send them up at reception.

Are they safe? Would they be legal in other countries?
#13
We saw our first one in the sky last night. My two young boys were amazed!! Mind you, it went close to the Gatwick flight path, although it burned about within about three mins.

Will order one for the boys at this price. Thanks!
#14
Don't use these in windy conditions. The GF did once and the lantern floated over the fence and set a tree alight two houses down. We had to run down and put a hose on it.
#15
sounds dangerous, so cold - cheap but dangerous
#16
These are great fun - & just a little bit special ...

Good find

I saw about 15-20 of these last week which were quite high and moved in a strange way. people were out on the street thinking they were alienns until one came over quite low about 10 mins later. Yes good fun

Great for weddings. In China they're known as wish lanterns. You give each guest one, or each table, depending how much you want to spend, they write their wish for the happy couple on it and then set them off together, Cheap and novel way of getting everyone out of the room whilst it's reorganised for the evening "do".
You can get them a bit cheaper than this in ebay

I wasnt aware :oops: but assumed that would be the case somehow. The thought of anything smouldering landing in the fields near my house is worrying though
#22
Is it legal to take it in yuor luggage for a longhaul flight. planning for holiday in Florida and was thinking of taking a 10 pack with me, it would have been fun, but just wondering if it was legal ?
#23
Have a look for Sky Lanterns on e-bay, there are loads of them and generally cheaper than this offer...
#24
Hotisgood Cant see why not mate, they are only Rice paper (Tissue paper) a bit of thin timber and wire and a wax ring that are folded flat, I've had loads of these but i bought from ebay, last lot were 10 for £11 delivered still got 5 left, no way are they dangerous if you use them responsibly.

We proposed this to our wedding venue but they refused to let us due to their being a lot of very old trees around.

Fun? If these are fun it wont be long before the government puts a ban on them or a TAX that will take the fun out of 'em.. (Good old British Government)

They will probably be classed as a weapon of mass destruction, a device for downing aircraft; a terrorist choice of weapon, or a danger to man kind..

I set a couple off around Christmas last year and they created a bit of a UFO panic locally.
The story was actually picked up nationally - just a bit of fun I'd thought!!

Hot though

We were given these to sey off our friends' wedding in Thailand - Have to admit, it's nice to watch them go up at night! We both got spots of wax on out clothes though from holding them above our heads for photos!

The Bridesmaid was a wedding planner from back here said she'd seen some at a wedding recently though that blew over before they were warm enough to start floating and they went on fire... so probably play safe if your having your wedding! Don't want any disasters do you!

Just remember what goes up must comes down, so your effectively dropping litter on the floor can can be fined £80.

Waste of resources IMO.

A friend of mine got into trouble recently when he and some other friends at a barbie launched a couple of these and the Coastguard/rescue services got called out because they thought they were distress flares. Very embarrassing for the fifty-somethings, and cost an estimated £30k for the scramble. Made the BBC news!
They look great though. Perhaps advise your local air traffic control before setting off?

One of these went past my window last week, wondering what the hell it was! then got told it was one of these :oops:

Yes, DEFINITELY inform your nearest airport before you set these off. Even if you don't live near an airport and they're not a danger to aircraft, for the reasons stated above (they look very similar to distress flares) at least if you've told someone, then when RAF Distress & Diversion start investigating, at least someone will know what they were. Ring and ask to speak to Air Traffic - they should put you through, or take a message.
