Product Description

From the Manufacturer

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.

Product Description

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.

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?

We spent many frustrating hours trying to get the globe and/or magnet to levitate unsuccessfully.

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.

This is one of the COOLEST executive gadgets I have every owned!!!! And I am over 40 and have had many cool gadgets on my desk. Never have I had something floating on my desk! I have had it for several weeks now and it still elicits a wow feeling from me most mornings when I walk into my office and I see the globe floating and slowly spinning on my desk. Most people that come to my office feel the same way. Plus it is a real conversation starter. I plan to buy more and send them as gifts during Christmas.

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.

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?

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.
