The Hoberman Mini Sphere is a smaller version of the original award winning geometric expanding/contracting Hoberman Sphere. Made of rainbow-colored plastic links, the sphere expands to 12" diameter and contracts to a compact 5.5".
There's a hypnotic fascination in making the sphere expand and contract over and over again, but if kids want to do more with their sphere, a guide (included) lists some possibilities. Kids can’t help but play with it for hours. A master of illusion, the sphere can be thrown, bounced, kicked, spun, rolled or suspended from the ceiling as a cool kinetic energy mobile. Also perfect to take in the car, keep in your desk or bring to school.
Plenty of fun, the Hoberman Mini Sphere might get kids thinking about mechanical engineering and some folding/unfolding projects of their own.
Includes instruction sheet with game and activity ideas.
Ages 4 and up.
Box Dimensions: 7" x 6" x 7"
