Found 4th Jul 2010
I think they where probably for the world cup but they just say England on the top and have the st George cross. We let a pack off yesterday after a barbecue there great fun.

Ready to fly Chinese Lanterns
Complete with fuel cell
Height 90cm Width 70 cm
5 pack
Non-flammable bio-degradable paper
Reaching heights of over 300 meters
Ideal for garden parties, birthdays, weddings and other memorable occasions
Chinese Lanterns (also sometimes referred to as floating Lanterns or paper lanterns) are unique, longer lasting and safer than fireworks. Chinese Lanterns rise to heights of over 300 meters and travel for miles. Chinese lanterns are made of non-flammable bio-degradable paper and stand over 90cm tall. They take approximately 30 seconds to fill with hot air before the lanterns are ready to be released into the sky, creating an impressive and eye catching visual effect.
In recent years Chinese lanterns have become extremely popular with people using Chinese Lanterns at garden parties, birthdays, weddings and other memorable occasions. Another more recent trend is to use the Chinese lantern for remembering our past ones and as almost sending a wish into the sky and make our past ones aware that they are not forgotten.

cheer up

I guess if you don't see anything wrong with chucking a big pile of material and wire out your window to land wherever, then these are great......



Not to worry, someone else can pick it up. Along with all the other crap people just dump. And it'll eventually rot away so why worry :thumbsup:

Tat..

england are out and they are a fire hazard

yes love these.. lets light some field and forest fires with them!!!

Cows will eat them and children will teeth on them...

Any other myths we may have missed here...:roll: Idiots!!:p

I really dont understand how this deal could be so cold. Cutting/nose/spite/face.
If the lantern had a picture of a Sandisk 32gb memory stick on it, it would be the hottest deal ... like... EVER!

I dont think it's just the England motif that's causing the cold votes.

A lot of people are voting this cold because of these being harmful to animals/a fire hazard/useless litter/and are generally only bought by selfish people who dont give a crap what harm they do, as long as they get 30 seconds of cheap entertainment.

If the deal was for a 32GB memory stick for £2.99 it'd be hot. If the deal was for a 32GB memory stick with the England flag on it for £2.99 it'd go south just as quick as this.

Unfortunately most are voting the England flag cold due to the obvious.

I think most would just prefer to set fire to the England flag part.

I vote hot though. Love these things. Great for letting off at music festivals just as it gets dark.

This is an un-thought through reaction rather than an arguement against the lanterns use.
When the lanterns return to ground level the flame will be out - otherwise the lantern would still be flying. There is no fire hazard.
How are the lanterns harmful to animals? I'm sure wild and domestic animals have far worse things to contend with in life than a bit of thin paper and some fuse wire.
Surely everything we buy has some impact on the environment? This lantern has far less long term impact on the environment than, for example, a DVD?

It's perfectly thought out which is why a lot of large organisations want to ban them, and why some other places already have banned them.

I already made a second post in this thread that responded to someone else saying this.

I'm done with this thread now.

A bit late now, but what a way to show your support for the England team: Full of hot air, but soon deflated and back down to earth.

You should try and form your own opinions rather than let Google make them for you. Question things, and question opinions. Never just follow the herd.

What about if you just use common sense and don't throw a big bit of wire and some paper out to land wherever, or is that just an opinion and not worth even considering since you are getting some pleasure?

They're just harmless floating lanterns... not nuclear waste.

It's litter though. Whether it's harmful or not is incidental (or in this case, for those that argue it's harmful to wildlife it's an added reason not to use them). I can't understand people's indifferent attitude to throwing stuff away outside. It doesn't matter what it is, it's still throwing an item away to land wherever, just like throwing a bit of rubbish out your window and thinking that's ok. You only need to take a walk along the coastline to see that plenty of the rubbish people just throw away doesn't just magically disappear....

In a way though, you could consider everything to be litter. The PC you're using will take far longer to decompose than the lantern. Enjoy what life can offer you, rather than being a kill-joy.

The PC I'm using won't be dumped on the street when I'm finished using it, but if that and labelling me a kill-joy is all you can come up with as an argument, never mind.

Wasnt really an arguement. Just expressing my feelings about band wagon jumping hypocrites.
