No, it’s not an actual candle shaped like a unicorn. Instead, this Crying Unicorn Candle is even better. That’s because it’s actually a candle holder that’s set up so that any melted wax comes out of the mythical creature’s eyes, allowing you to keep the horned creature crying by simply refilling it with new candles many times over.
Yes, we don’t know why anyone would want unicorns crying, too. Then again, we don’t know why you’d still use candles when lighting systems are more sophisticated than ever, so maybe you’re the kind of person who also wants to see unicorn bawling over with endless tears. We won’t judge.
The Crying Unicorn Candle is a ceramic figurine with cut-out eye holes that allow the melted wax to fall through. It has a hole on top of the head for inserting the candle, which also serves as the horn for your inexplicably sad unicorn. We’re not entirely sure what kinds of candles this will work with, but they’re throwing in a pair of colorful horn-shaped ones with each figurine, although you’ll have to figure out what other candles you can use after you’ve burned through them (we’re sure any relatively slim ones, such as those you put on birthday cakes, will do).
Dimensions are 5.5 x 3.7 x 2.6 inches (height x width x depth), so it’s small enough to place practically anywhere in the house. That means, you can enjoy a crying unicorn whether you’re soaking in the tub, eating dinner with the wife, or just reclining in the living room watching TV.
Now available for preorder, the Crying Unicorn Candle is priced at £19.99.
