Winner of 6 Toy Awards including Dr. Toy 2010 Top Tech Toy Award
Engaging, interactive, and awe-inspiring, this animator combines the old with the new, marrying a simple spinning top with cutting-edge LED technology to make pictures come to life and move.
Eighteen different picture disks are included with patterns, shapes, and images that animate before your eyes. Just place a disk on the Strobotop™, give it a spin, aim your LightPhaser at it, and capture the action. Suddenly the blur snaps into focus, and pictures start to move in ways you could not have imagined from viewing the static images. Animals pounce and gallop around the circle; figures run and jump; cartoons play: and kaleidoscopic patterns move and change. The speed and direction of the spinning images are under your control.
You can even create your own animations and Strobodisks using the drawing guides provided. While you quickly learn to master the art of animation, you'll learn how the eye perceives motion and how all animated cartoons and motion pictures work. The LightPhaser only works when aimed down, because of its gravity activated switch, and it automatically shuts off when laid down, to save batteries.
Requires four AAA batteries, not included.
Stroboscope is also the winner of at least six awards: the Dr. Toy Top 100 Products Award, Dr. Toy Top 10 Tech Products Award, Creative Child Toy of the Year Award, Mom’s Best Award, the Tillywig Award, and the Oppenheim Portfolio Gold Seal Award.
A booster pack of 18 additional Strobodisks is also available (item# 3152282).
WARNING: Choking Hazard - Not suitable for children under 3 years because of small parts.
