What you get
A Sparkling Spindle, measuring 30cm long in a blister pack. Comes in a variety of colours, a random colour will be chosen for your order.
How does it work
A simple yet clever design. The multiple foil-poly strips fixed still at one end and on a freely moving disc at the other, allow for any number of shapes and patterns to be created by spin. The ribbon strips reflect a rainbow of colours, and when they move quickly can trick our brain into 'seeing' a reflective wall of one - very much like a delicate bubble. You'll be amazed by this pretty spindle of fun and illusion.

If the foil strips become tangled, push the bottom towards the top and untangle the knots by lifting the problem strips over the top.
