These sky lanterns are handmade and imported from China, where traditional lanterns have lifted off for centuries and are considered good luck. Packs of 10 or 20 pristine lanterns, each about the size of a large beach ball or a 1/100,000-scale model of Jupiter, float peacefully into the sky, propelled by hot air wafting from a small flame within. After about 15 minutes of flight, flames self-extinguish, and the fire-resistant lantern body gently falls and begins to completely biodegrade. Launching Chinese sky lanterns can lend extra pomp and symbolism to events such as memorial services, weddings, and driver’s ed class reunions. For $25, you get 10 Chinese sky lanterns with fuel patches (a $50 value). For $40, you get 20 Chinese sky lanterns with fuel patches (a $100 value). An additional $5 shipping will be charged at checkout for each option. Click here to view an alternate image of the lanterns. Handmade and imported from China. Self-propelled by hot air balloon.
