Flying Lanterns - Four Pack
They're basically a large paper (fireproof) lantern with a wick suspended beneath them. You light the wick (outside of course), and in about thirty seconds they are filled with hot air from the flame and are ready to sail majestically up to 1000 feet into the night sky. Originally thought up by the Chinese over 2000 years ago as a warning signal, paper lanterns gradually became a part of festival and ceremonial practices across the Far East. Now we can enjoy them too, and whether you're planning on using them for a wedding, a party, or just because they're beautiful, there's no doubt they'll bring a certain spark to any event. Who knows where they may end up?
- A pack of 4 lanterns that use hot air to float serenely into the sky.
- The lanterns are created from non-flammable bio-degradable paper.
- Each pack contains release instructions and safety instructions.
- Whilst lanterns are much safer to light than fireworks, caution must be taken at all times with the naked flame.
- Suitable for ages 16+.
- 90 x 44 (diam)cm.

What a night
Just spent the weekend at the beach (it's been really sunny this weekend), and I had 2 packs of the Flying Lanterns with me. Just as the sun was setting we set about letting these bad boys off into the distance. Was brilliant to watch them slowly float off to the horizon. Perfect addition for any night time gathering!
really great fun and value
I would say that these Flying Lanterns are the perfect way to end an evening - or start one for that matter! I imagined when I bought it that the fire would hit the paper and end in a sooty disaster! I was wrong, they just float away and look great, especially if you buy more for your friends.
Everyone wants to know what they are!
I've bought these as a present for someone but I would love to have them for myself- unfortunately I don't live far enough away from an airport! Whilst they were waiting to be wrapped everyone has been fascinated by them, they look amazing. Someone did mention to me though that the farmers don't like them because the cows like to eat them?
Received the lanterns very quickly and immediately launched one to celebrate the start of the weekend - very sad people! We intend to use the rest for a birthday celebration - they look amazing when you use several at one time with your wshes and messages written on each - and you watch a procession of lanterns floating off into the night sky....
Amazing and great fun!!
I bought these as part of my Mum's 75th birthday surprise. We gave one out per 2 people so they could do their own and then we just watched them in amazement go floating upwards. My Mum and some of the shall we say, more elderly amongst us had never seen anything like it and were literally gobsmacked. I bought an extra box as they were on offer for another party later in the year but everyone wanted to buy them off me when they had seen them in action!! DO buy them - they are brilliant and I don't think they are expensive when you get such a fantastic reaction from friends and family. BUY NOW!!
Just the thing for a multi-generation family party if there's a field or a big garden around. There's all the excitement of lighting the first one, and then the thrill of watching it take off and float away into the sky. At dusk there could be nothing more magical than a whole host of flying lanterns rising gently into the heavens.
Light up the sky.
I bought a Valentines 2 pack of hearts but we couldn't wait and set one off the night before with our in-laws in Rubgy watching. Everyone was amazed and my wife gave me a big cuddle and kiss as a thankyou. The last we saw of it was dissapearing into the clouds in the distance. BRILL. I'm now going to order a large pack just for fun.
Flying Lanterns - A Hit!
We decided to purchase these after we had seen some on bonfire night. They last a long time and can be seen for a considerable distance. We set some off at Christmas. The adults and children alike all enjoed them. I would recommend this product. Before use make sure you know the wind direction so that you can get the maximum benefit from them.
lighting up the sky
i have tried them in the past and what a fantastic way to end the perfect day. thats why i have brought these for my wedding! everyone can write a message and we can let them off. its also a nice way to remember those who aren't with us. a little tricky to let off sometimes but a still night works wonders! i cant wait!!
We flew some of those lanterns with friends on New Year's Eve and thought they were great (We had to find a spot sheltered from the wind to fly them successfully). They are pretty and fun and I wanted to have some at hand for future birthday celebrations. They were half price so bought 2 packs of ten. Thank you 'I Want One Of Those' for a great price and prompt delivery.
Really good fun
The lanterns came in a huge box which I thought wasn't necessary and waste of packaging. They are very thin and I accidentally made a tear in mine which resulted in it not working. Used on quite a windy day which isn't advised. Overall really fun and even had neighbours looking out at what we were doing!
Bright idea for any occasion!
I bought a pack of 10 flying lanterns to set off in celebration of my 22nd birthday in November. My best friends and I wrote a little note each and signed our names to make it even more personal. I took the leftover ones to London on saturday as there was a meet-up in memory of someone. Although they took a while to set off (much longer than 30 seconds!) they look stunning as they float off. We had 70 messages on one of them and it made it an emotional and special occasion. Thanks very much IWOOT, will definitely be buying more for the summer!
Magical way to celebrate at night!
The lanterns are a little fiddly to open and you definitely need 2 people as it needs support to hold it up, while another person lights it which can take some time to establish. Once it has enough warm air to try and lift away from your hands, let go and gaze into the night sky as it drifts away. These are great if you are having a party and with a few people you light a few at once so that they take off togther ish and drift into the night sky! cheaper and longer lasting than fireworks!!
fantastic buy- better than could have been expecte
the lanterns were fabulous, we let a few go up together on New Year's Eve, into a clear cloudless sky they were phenomenal, they drifted for ages andwe could see them even after approx 15mins. Have bought more to celebrate with larger numbers next time---- very highly recommended
New Year's Eve Wishes
We purchased a pack of lanterns for our New Year's Eve party, and taking into account what the packaging said we decided to write messages and wishes on to our lanterns. Everyone was totally engrossed in decorating their lanterns. Once we were done decorating, actually setting them off and watching them fly over the hill and eventually out of sight was fantastic fun and made for lots of great memories. Definitely a New Year's Eve that won't be forgotten and an item that will be purchased again in the future.
Serene way of seeing in the New Year - complemented by other setting off fireworks. They are really beautiful and the night we set them off, it was as still and clear as it could be. Heartily recommended! p.s. if you can a number of people launching at the same time, the spectical is even better
Great fun after a couple of goes
In the summer these were in the newspaper as being UFOs so we had to get some.Over the holiday we launched about 4 lanterns, and 1 worked well. The first attempt nearly took out the neighbours, second my grandads car, third it blew down the street and would not take off (this is what the video is of) and finally on a clear still night, it took off and looked awesome. They are great you just have to be more patient than my Dad and wait for a still night!!!
these are great we had them for new year party. they were easy to light and good thing is there not like fire works where you only see them for a few secs i could still see them 5 mins after i lit the 1st one they were really glowing great buy and every1 that was there decided they were gonna get some for partys etc so i told them about this site really good value and they are cheap for the quality 10/10
Best purchase of the decade
Absolutely awesome! This is the only fitting way to describe these as they lit up the night sky at our new years party. Great fun for all the family both young and old getting everyone involved. Way better than fireworks which cost 10 times as much and are safer to boot. Highly recommended.
