I haven't ever seen these Chinese lanterns so cheaply - particularly these ones which are made with bamboo rather than wire and so don't cause a hazzard to cattle like the wire ones can (and should never be used in rural areas because of that).

You can buy them online for around £10 + postage, but they are usually around £2.50 individually. They are great for a New Year celebration or birthday.

Great if used sensibly in a wide open area.

There was a big pile of them on the floor in my local 99p store (Ashford in Kent), but going quickly.

This is what they look like - it is exactly the same brand and wrapper - this Amazon seller has 3 x lanterns for £7.09 including shipping - maybe I missed a trick there, could have bought some to sell!

Thanks - my son is always talking about these. I will buy some.

Saw these in Poundland a few months ago too. Not sure if they are still about in Poundland though as everything is taken up by Xmas stock now. I'm sure someone posted a pack of more than one for 1 to 2 pounds here at some point...

They should ban the bloody thing's, they are always landing in my garden.

They was 3 for a £ .

Wait for all the 'Tree-huggers' to put a downer on these, for me they're GREAT - HOT DEAL.

not a tree hugger, but lucky it wasn't your wooden shed, wooden house etc should be banned imho too

Last time I checked 'biodegradable' and setting fire to something weren't on the same page.

Good idea for wide open spaces I guess, but pretty dangerous in confined residential areas as mentioned above, and a potential danger to air traffic.

Cold.

Not voting, but do take care with these (especially if you have children) as there was an incident during Bonfire night, where a little 5 years old boy was burnt on the face when the burning wax dropped while the lantern flew above them.

Why are people so obsessed with these things? Like 3 year-olds wanting to play with boxes of matches :-(

They cause fires, should be banned, and biodegradability is irrelevant to them being litter in the everyday sense, much litter is biodegradable, but it's still a nuisance.

I don't know why everyone is putting such a downer on these. I think they're brilliant. Give some people half the chance to have a moan and they will jump at the oppotunity. I bet you all use gas, electric drive or have access to a car or public transport, which has a significant and much more detrimental effect on the environment.

Yeah, but on the main, what you've stated are necessities for most - burning one of those for the 'whooahhh!' factor isn't - plus using gas and electricity doesn't case problems near airports.

When I was kid we used to make our own using dry-cleaning bags.
