I have bought Beth a musical sparkling birthday candle to take with us. It has a sparkler in the middle. Its very small. My question is can i pack it in my hold luggage or is this a no no.

I would think that as long as it has never been lit, and can't possibly light itself that you should be able to do this. However I think I would actually check the regulations if I were you.

Did you mean not put in luggage.

I know i can buy candles out there but this i a very special candle Beth will love and when you can not buy much for your child something like this means a lot, silly i know.

It a flower in bud and when lit the flower opens to a small sparkler and six candles all lit by the tapper you lite and it plays happy birthday.

I was told i couldnt take things like that when i enquired a few years ago, wanted some sparler type ones for our wedding table.
Glad things have changed and you can take one for Beth though!
