Everyone watched it melt throughout the night and it got so much attention. Everyone, especially the kids, eagerly waited to see more and more of the skeleton come through. It was a bigger hit than expected. Highly recommend." - Nina G.

I had one of these. It was a complete ripoff. The wick didn't go all the way down, so I ended up with about two thirds of the skeleton showing and the rest still encased in wax.
