my portuguese friend has done some more research and he came up with the translation "foguete mágico"
The Brazilian Portuguese form for the word sparker varies according to the size (thickness). Cascade Candle for the fine ones and Volcano Candle for the thick ones, however the English term "sparker" is constantly used, depending on the manufacturer.
The literal translation from German wunderkerze into Portuguese would be a miracle candle, but if you use the wunderkerze translator it will result in a sparker and not a Miracle Candle. Logo sparker = vela cascata e vela vulcão.
Vela cascata = Cascade Candle
Vela vulcão = Volcano Candle
In my region of Brazil, we kinda use it. Not always, but sometimes. Still never have I ever really given it a name or hear someone calling it by some name. If, for example, my mom wanted me to give her the sparkler, she would simply refer to it as "aquilo que faz faísca" (that thing that sparkles). I would think that in other regions of Brazil people would refer to it as some composite noun using the word "vela" (candle).
