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.
