3-D Mirascope
You've seen everybody's favorite desk toy. The one that makes you swear you can pick up the coin that's right inside it. Too bad it's really a hologram you're looking at! Now you can own this petite version of the popular "illusion" toy. This one, 6" dia x 2" tall, with a 1-5/8" opening on the top, leaves more money in your wallet and more room on your desktop. And try to touch that little rubber frog that comes with it. It's either enchanting - or enchanted!
$8.95 EACH
Rainbows All Over The Room
From Sun Catcher®, a transparent prismatic sheet, roughly 4-1/4" x 5-1/4", inside an oval frame, roughly 10-3/4" x 8-1/4" with a variety of motifs. We'll pick (1) of (3) diffraction patterns inside (1) of (6) heavy cardboard frames: undersea critters, fairyland, jungle life, a wizard, dolphins or a garden with butterflies and a hummingbird. It will "transform light into an explosion of multiple hues," and who doesn't like that? Comes with a suction cup to mount in your window, and if you're a minimalist you could cut the cool prism out of its frame and we wouldn't tell a soul.
$6.95 EACH
Absolutely incredible device! The Mirage®, a precision optical instrument, creates three-dimensional images of objects of your choice where there is nothing. Drop pennies, keys or similar small objects (your sister won't fit) into the 2-3/8" dia opening of this 9" dia x 3" high flying-saucer-shaped disc, and a perfect image of the object will appear floating above it. The image is so real friends will try to grasp it, but their fingers will close on thin air! Use it as a high-tech centerpiece with a flower as the object! A booklet (included) explains the magic. New coating provides protection for the mirror surfaces. Highly recommended. Made in the USA.
