    full case of DOT red lantern baby magic blooms (jumping jacks). case of 20. you'd be surprised how hard it is to find quantitys of these. sure a brick here or there, but hard to find full sealed cases....

    Nice find... It's been a long time since I've seen any old school jumping jacks floating around the south...

    uh yes. better than the new ones by far. these actually spin like crazy and sometimes spin into the air. WAYYYYY better than the un0336 ones today.

    Nice score.. I always loved good jacks, sometimes when I get the jones I will grab a few of the Shogun Flying Ground Blooms and get my fix.

    good find! I miss these so much. we used to buy a pack every friday on the way home from school and light them up and down the streets. good times. the ones nowadays last like 2 seconds and suck anus.

    Nice score Again, Craig!! Man you really know how to find the goods. How do those compare with the class C Horse brand Jumping Jacks?

    Horse JJ's and these are pretty comparable. i would still lean towards the horse JJ's though. i think the JJ's have a bit longer color at times. but i lit some baby magic blooms last nite and one flew about 100 feet in the air. so they can still move!

    i told the guy if these had been horse JJ's, i would have bought everything he had!

    What HAPPENED to these and WHY? I used to buy the Baby Blooms at G.L Perry for 25 cents a pack(Late 80's/early 90's). Never seen too many jumping jacks around the area when I was younger---I'm 31, and I've seen the smoke crackers fly farther than the wannabe jumping jacks of today---not including the single visco type. BS.
