The Hoberman Sphere is named after its inventor, Chuck Hoberman and, although it is tons of fun, it also offers kids lessons in transformative design. This Hoberman Original Rainbow Sphere from Tedco allows the colorful, polymer links to expand this amazing object from 9.5 inches to an amazing 30 inches, all in a fluid motion that is so enticing kids will have a hard time putting it down. Actually, not just kids who love it - you should have seen the folks in our office when we got this in: they were playing catch with it, bouncing, spinning, and opening and closing it until we finally had to hide it to get them back to work! Includes an educational booklet about the Sphere, a 21 Cool Things To Do
activity sheet, a pulley, hardware, and instructions for hanging the Hoberman Original Rainbow Sphere as a cool kinetic energy mobile (assuming you can get it away from the kids!).
Ages 4 & up.
