Just as Earth revolves on an axis, so does the Terra Magic line. Advanced magnetic drive allows the Terra Magic AXIS to rotate for months on just one battery. Terra Magic AXIS 4” globes feature four distinctive color styles with a new, artistic base. Designed to illustrate many magical aspects of our world, Fascinations products will cause you to react with amazement and ask "What makes that work?" or "How is that possible?" By working with engineers, scientists, magicians and most importantly, kids young and old, Fascinations is proud to bring you the best in truly unique toys and gifts.
Globes show what the earth looks like, but the earth isn't mounted to a spindle or placed atop a plastic stand. Here's a globe that shows the world the way it really is. The Levitron World Stage levitating globe uses a magnetic disk to magically float in the air. You can place your hand above, below or around the globe and it will continue to float and you can send it into a slow spin with a gentle touch. The integrated 8 blue LEDs keep the globe awash in beauty. You can levitate the provided globe or any item up to 3 ounces. It's sure to be an endless source of fascination and fun. Includes 3in. diameter globe; total platform is 9in.L x 6.25in.W and includes 110V AC adapter and instructions.
