Now, of course we know that it's too late to order these fun items for the New Year - but wouldn't the bleigiessen be fun for any celebration of change: birthdays, retirements, wedding showers - even divorces! Or, even any time that you just might want to tell a fortune or two or three. And the Blasrohre for just about any time!
|Bleigiessen - Fortune Telling Tradition|
We just love the different traditions throughout the world. New Year's Bleigießen is the Austrian and German custom of pouring molten lead into water and reading the results as though they were tea leaves - so that you can foretell your next year. When the hot lead touches the water, curious shapes are formed.
Reading the shapes a big chunk of the fun - it's almost like reading the clouds in the sky! For example, if you find a ship or boat, perhaps you are destined for a long journey, probably by sea.
Because these contain lead, there are some safety procedures to follow - but they're included with your package. And children should never play with products involving flame or heat like this!
|Blasrohre (Blow-Pipes) for Celebrations|
Fun for Oktoberfest, New Year's Eve, Birthdays and more, these cardboard paper blowpipes allow you to shoot soft fabric balls in the air for a festive time! Three pipes and 45 balls are included in this fun German package.
Of course, this is not suitable for children under 3 due to swallowable parts. And, please, don't aim at humans or animals!
