Customer Reviews

This globe was a waste of money.
Valeriya
Is it normal for the magnet to kick as it gets closer to the platform when trying to find the sweet spot?
Nick B
Opened it, read the directions, plugged it in and then spent the next hour trying to get it to work.

I initially purchased two of these as gifts. When you receive it, the first thing you'll notice is that the cheap plastic mirror base is scratched, making it appear used. This is not the case though - the base is that stick-on mirror that is easily marred. Even when functioning properly, it will take at least several tries to get the globe levitating, and when it hits the base, it leaves marks. So I presume the marks occurred during testing or packing. You may want to consider this if you want to give this as a gift. We chose not to give them away, because it looked like we were giving a used gift.

We spent many frustrating hours trying to get the globe and/or magnet to levitate unsuccessfully. So we opened the second one(same marring on the base), and it worked within five minutes. It has now been ten months, and it is behaving as the first one did - will not levitate. You find the balanced spot, let go, and it slams back down to the base.

The levitation is caused by several strategically placed electronic magnets in the base. Apparently over time, one or more of the magnets malfunction and this causes the toy to fail.

Bottom line, it's pretty cool when it works. I thought it made a nice night light. If you're ordering it as a gift, I suggest ordering early and testing it first.

Based on other reviews, there's not a whole lot new to say about the particular Levitron I ordered, so I'll just give highlights that were influencial to my review.

Bad news first. As soon as I open up the package, I noticed a couple of small scratches on the mirror surface despite the protective layer that you have to peel off. Not only that, but the globe was magnetically stuck to the stage, which took some moderate force to separate. That's when I discovered this globe is not nearly as sturdy as it looks. The hemispheres came apart while trying to separate the magnets, and the first thing I notice was that the little plastic hex skeleton is broken off of the middle, and cannot be fixed. I thought to myself "oh crap, I just ruined it."

Now the good news. I'm not sure what purpose that flat hex skeleton serves, but very fortunately, the product seems to work just fine without it. After all, it's just plastic. On my first attempt, I got the globe working in about a minute. I have taken the platform out and was able to levitate it, and I was also able to levitate it while attached to the globe. All the LED lights work, it levitates, and it rotates. It does what it was designed to do, and I am very pleased with how it looks. It makes for some great decor!

I would recommend this product. Please note that you do have to be EXTREMELY careful when handling the globe, especially with the magnet in it. The globe is easily crushed (or otherwise deformed) if you squeeze it just a little too hard, and it also comes apart really easy. I love the product, but it's not built quite as sturdy as I would have hoped. Enough for me to bring the overall rating down by 1 star. I think it's fair.

There is a trick to get this working! Take some tissue paper and put the globe in the center with both hands lift it up and slowly lower it to the center of the platform. Go up and down until you feel that the globe is floating..Trust me this work the best.Some people at work try there hands with no luck...I got it floating in 10 seconds or less every time.

you will most likely spend hours trying to get the globe to float.

globe will fall with any power interruptions.

globe is super tiny and made of thin plastic.

globe halves barely stay together.

I really wanted to like this item but it truly is a POS.

The first delivery had a defective globe: the magnetic material came unglued in minutes.

The second delivery was not defective but could not be made to levitate. The magnetic disk flips
over and obviously cannot be made to levitate. The disk is different from that illustrated.
When put into the globe, I can imagine that someone could occassionally get levitation. A number
of us could not after many careful attempts. I have had many levitating devices previously and
never had difficulty being careful enough to make them work. This device does not work.

I first started researching these after seeing something like it in iron man 2, which turns out was like 300+ dollars. In the related items bar i saw this and was interested. I looked at multiple products like this one, floating globes, levitating etc.. and found this one to be the best looking, cheapest, and best reviews. I got mine yesterday and it was eaassyy to set up. Its been "levitating for about 4 hours now and still spinning the same speed as a set it. The base is very sturdy with cool looking blue LED's that work great. The globe is a little cheaper then expected but looks good. The only thing misleading is in the description it says "Floats for months with a single battery". There is no place for batteries, only for an AC power adapter. Overall this is an AWESOME product, well worth the price.

My only question is,
How long are the magnetics going to last until they start giving out if i left it on constently? The mechanical parts inside?
