When you’re planning for a magical night at home with the love of your life, but you just can’t quite capture the ambiance and romance of a Jurassic Park movie, you could always help set the mood with this Hatching Dinosaur Candle.
This ingenious little candle is different from most. As this wax egg (roughly 14cm wide x 14cm tall x 15.8cm deep) melts away, it slowly reveals “an adorable porcelain raptor,” as though the egg is actually hatching and the most precious little monster (who will 100% eat you when it grows up) is being born right before your eyes.
This candle is exclusive to the folks at Firebox, and as though they read my mind, the listing says, “Sometimes life doesn’t find a way. Dinosaurs are 100% extinct.” Uh, okay guys, no one listened to Dr. Ian Malcolm once before; we aren’t making the same mistake.
They do say that the flame from the candle will turn the baby velociraptor’s face black as the wax melts away, but don’t worry. Once the porcelain dinosaur cools off you can wipe away the soot with no problem.
The Hatching Dinosaur Candle will cost you roughly $45 plus shipping, but a new life is priceless, isn’t it? And unlike other candles that melt away into extinction, this candle gives you a memento to remember it by.
