Smithsonian Plasma Ball
The Smithsonian is one of the most respected institutions in the world. When they put their name on a product for children, parents take notice. Once out of the box you’ll find instructions for use that is detailed, informative and fascinating, but never overwhelming. The ball has a sturdy base that makes tipping difficult (but not impossible). Children were transfixed and thrilled by the exciting visuals they could create with just a touch. They loved the bright colors and how it looked like “lightening”. This is a fun, interactive way for kids to experiment with electricity safely. Some parents told us that it worked wonderfully as a nightlight because it is pretty mesmerizing.
