FAQs: Fun-Kins, Artificial Carvable Pumpkins

What is a Fun-Kin?

Fun-Kins are synthetic pumpkins that are carefully crafted and painted by hand to look just like real pumpkins. They can be carved and lit to look like spooky works of art just like pumpkins. They are made hollow so there is no scooping of seeds and pumpkin guts necessary. And they never ever rot, so carvings last forever!

What are Fun-Kins Made Of?

Unlike any other fake pumpkins available, Fun-Kins are constructed of patented low density foam. About the same consistency of real pumpkins. The walls of a Fun-Kin are generally about one half of an inch thick (a little more for the really big ones, and a little less for the really small ones) so they are strong enough to last for years to come and endure shipping, carving, use, and storage.

How Can Fun-Kins be Carved?

Carve Fun-Kins just like you carve pumpkins. You can use any tool you would use on a pumpkin in almost the exact same way on a Fun-Kin. And we recommend using the Fun-Kins Carving Tool for the absolute cleanest cut you can get.

One novel approach is to use a full-sheet label and carve right through it like this.

How can Fun-Kins be Lit?

Once your Fun-Kin is carved, light it up with any electric light you can think of under 5 watts. A great no-cord option is the Fun-Kin Tealight which has nifty little feet on the bottom so it can be positioned anywhere inside a Fun-Kin.

Can I put a candle in my Fun-Kin?

No. Never use real flames inside Fun-Kins, this could result in fire. There are plenty of options available for lighting pumpkins and Fun-Kins that are safer than real flames such as the Fun-Kins Pumpkin Light and the Fun-Kins Battery Operated Tealight.

Can Fun-Kins be used outside?

Yes. Fun-Kins are resistant to all kinds of weather including rain, sleet, snow, sun, cold. If wind is a concern, make sure your Fun-Kins are weighted down, they are much lighter than pumpkins.
