Yes, this is an awesome light-detecting pumpkin which you can make yourself but I think that spoils all the fun. Candles going out, burnt fingers and wax everywhere is surely part of the 'fun.'

It features batteries and LEDs and will happily turn itself off and on when it is light and dark. How very helpful!
