The idea of a t-rex hatching from an egg-shaped candle is cute, but the problem lies in the fact that before you burn it, you’ve only got an egg made of wax. After you burn it, you’ve just got a dinosaur. Only the transition state, the dinosaur emerging from the wax as the candle burns, is interesting, but it only happens once, and for $45.
“But that’s the beauty of it! It only happens once!” Yeah, well, go see a local band play four times, or go for a walk in the woods infinite times for free.
If you’re fixated on the idea of burning a candle to reveal something inside, PyroPet was first to market with this idea, and the metal cat skeleton inside might be worth the cost and process, if you’re into tiny cat skeletons.
