Send your lantern soaring to celebrate New Year, Weddings, Birthdays, Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali or any other special event. It will fly for up to 20 minutes and can rise over a mile in the sky - where it will still be visible all around!

Traditionally used in Chinese and Thai celebrations, these are a beautiful and fascinating way to light up the sky that's becoming increasingly popular throughout the world for any kind of event. Flying Lanterns are traditionally known as 'Khom Fay' or 'Khom Loy' in China and have been used for nearly two thousand years. It was believed that wishes written on lanterns would rise up to the heavens and come true.

The Sky Glow Flying Lantern is made from flame-retardant, bio-degradable materials and the frame is made from Bamboo - a wood that is quickly replenished. A quieter, gentler alternative to fireworks, flying lanterns are the safe, simple and perfect way to create an amazing visual display in the sky!


Made from flame resistant paper, it is 100% biodegradable
Fuelled for 15-20 minutes of flying time
Safety instructions:
Only use in very calm conditions.
Only use in open spaces and not near to buildings.
Not suitable for use by children under 16.
Never use near airports, under flight paths, near pylons or overhead cables.
Do not use near anything that may catch fire, such as dry crops or woodland.
Keep a fire extinguisher or bucket of water nearby.
This product is not a toy and should not be used by children.
Do not tie anything or add any weight at all to the lantern.
Do not use if you are under the influence of alcohol

This'll give my UFO spotting neighbour a heart attack lol !

One of the best parties I went to involved one of these lanterns setting fire to itself and landing in a tree, out of reach of any attempt to extinguish it.

"Do not use if you are under the influence of alcohol"

...then I cannot imagine any possible scenario where they would be of interest to me.

ha ha i set on of these go on new year it was really good,
would not like the remains of i in my garden though lol

It's the neighborhood random arson pack!

But seriously, seems like a good deal.

Just thought i'd post to say I got 10 of these on ebay for £13.00 delivered (6.99 + 4.99 p&p from hong kong).

Had lots of fun over christmas.

Not for sale in Australia!

Exactly! These things have got to be illegal!? Hasn't stopped me in the past though - wasn't in the UK mind you...

Look really good when you let a number off together but can get them cheaper from e-bay 20 for £20 from a Manchester warehouse

i bought 20 of these for £20 inc p&p off ebay and they arrived last week, let one off friday night and it too landed in neighbours tree, burnt for ages but luckily no major damage and neighbours were out! they are great bt they fly very very hgh and are fuelled by what is basically a fire lighter attached to the under neath.

mine came from ebay user electronic_kingdom and were posted from manchester took about 5 days 20 for £19.99 inc

These are wonderful things. We set about ten off on New Years Eve in an open area (very important) and they looked utterly amazing - far better than a typical fireworks display in terms of spectacle. I think I paid about 3 pounds for each one so this is a bargain if you don't like ebay... but I'm pretty sure that they are the same product.

We'll be buying more this year, and this time I have a good digital SLR to take some good shots of the occasion.

Heated up!

I just made one with a bin bag and 4 candles. Cheaper than £3

this looks great, cant wait to try after a few stellas

a bin bag and fork handles?

Great for indescriminate arson.:roll:

oook, the play.com title says "Magical Flying Lantern (10 pack)"

Yet in the description it clearly says.... "Includes: 30 flying lanterns"

Anyone else noticed this?!

Looking at getting some of these for my wedding, are the ones on ebay exactly the same, I.e flight time, biodegradeable etc?

the ones i bought had a wire frame at the openeong not bamboo and the paper is a very thin tracing paper stuff, approx 1 m high

Sounds great but dangerous. There are lots of videos on You Tube if you want to see the effect.

I'm embarrassed to admit I saw about 20 of these float by in formation last night and thought they were UFOs

i first saw these at glastonbury a few years ago, amazing sight

you can get these a bit cheaper at nightskylanterns

nightskylanterns.co.uk/chi…tml

They are £21.73 with free delivery. I ordered mine at mid day and they arrived the next day. you also get £1.25 worth of loyalty points for your next order with them.

How is this hot?
There are easily cheaper deals available. Firebox is cheaper if you use a ]£5 voucher.
=£23.95 + 10% quidco = £21.55.

If anyone has ordered from Play, please can you let us know if you receive 10 or 30? As I am quite tempted to order for my wedding in September.

Many Thanks xXx

as previously stated i bought 20 for £19.99 on ebay

having just had a look on ebay this seems to be a good price in comparison to what they are currently available for. guaranteed reputable dealer too! gets heated up by me, thanks OP.

If you only want 5 at a fixed price with free delivery.

I haven't used them yet but I just bought 3 from a local fireworks shop for £12 and thought it was a bit steep.
They do look great.

Heat added...

I have emailed Play and asked them to clarify whether the price is for 10 or for 30 :?

Yeah, these are good fun. Let one off the Hog's Back near Guildford and had a car come screeching to a halt in the layby because they thought it was a UFO.

If there's 30 in this pack, it's a good deal.

i think these look wicked , scared by the other stories on here tho hahaha il stay away from trees!!!

We had them on New Years Eve - they floated for 20 secs then caught fire and came crashing back down very dangerously! Some landed in trees and it seemed to take forever for the flames to go out. Would need an extremely calm summer night to work properly.
