• Can reach speeds of up to 12,000 RPM
• LED lights to create amazing light show effects
• Spin so fast that they become a blur

How do I use the Tornado Spheres?
Spin the Tornado Spheres on a smooth surface and use the included blowpipe to accelerate their rotation. The spheres will spin so fast that they become a blur. When used on a really smooth surface – like a mirror – they can reach speeds of up to 12,000 RPM and will continue to spin for several minutes after you stop blowing.

How do I create an amazing mini light show?
Once you have the Tornado Spheres spinning, you can create a fascinating miniature light show. Simply shine the included LED mini lights at them from a variety of different angles, to create an almost limitless array of amazing effects. Try it in a darkened room for maximum results.
