  • 8 parchment and gold crackers
  • hand made using traditional methods
  • Inside each handmade cracker you will find a different musical chime bar and stick - plus a numbered badge which everyone should wear. Nominate someone to be the conductor who, following the simple numbered music sheet and using the enclosed baton, points at each person (depending on their badge number) to play their chime bar - the result: beautiful music....or total chaos ! If less than 8 people are present then some will need to have 2 or more different chime bars
Party crackers are a British tradition dating back to Victorian times when a confectioner started selling sugared almonds, each with a motto and wrapped in a twisted paper package, as love tokens. One day a jet of resin from the confectioners log fire burst into flame with a loud ‘crack’. Using this idea he decided to make a log shaped package that would produce a surprise bang and inside would be an almond and a motto.It soon became a firm favorite at parties with toys, hats and jokes added to each ‘cracker’. By the end of the century it was well established as a traditional holiday custom and now each year virtually every household in the UK has crackers. In recent years crackers have become essential ice breakers at all types of parties, dinner parties, weddings and celebrations. Place one at each place setting for decoration and then pull it open with a friend and share the fun
