Hoberman Sphere - Universe (Glow-in-the-Dark)

The Hoberman Sphere starts small and expands bigger than you'd ever expect!

Made of rainbow-colored plastic links, the sphere expands to 30 inches in diameter and contracts to a compact 9.5 inches.


There's a hypnotic fascination in making the sphere expand and contract over and over again, especially in a dark room because this crazy sphere glows in the dark!


Want to do more with the sphere? A guide (included) lists some possibilities.

How about trying the ballerina spin, the flip down, or the hot potato?
Another option is to hang the sphere as a mobile. A pulley system is included, and a pull of the ring will cause the sphere to contract. Release the ring for expansion.

Plenty of fun, the Hoberman Sphere might get kids thinking about mechanical engineering and some folding/unfolding projects of their own.
