More fireworks

October 6, 2008

I came across some more fireworks from an old stash I remembered I had. Nothing too spectacular, but you can definately count on the emission of flame and sparks with these!

    I think ‘Gamelia’ is just a bit of Engrish.

    Oh! I just googled “ducks disporting water fireworks” and up popped your blog entry…I remember these fireworks from the early 80s. Some American friends would bring a batch home to Canada for their July 4th celebration and we’d have an entertaining hour in the backyard with these inventive sparkly toys. As I recall, the ducks start by spinning. Then the top pops off, then the ducks spring up and shoot fireworks from their beaks. Then if I remember correctly, little balloons bloom from their beaks. Or maybe the balloons were related to another one of the amazing toys. Is it still possible to find these (for sale)?
