The Strobotop is a brand new toy from the US company Eye Think, who also created the animated children's book 'Gallop'.
The toy consists of one 'Strobotop', one LightPhaser, 18 Strobodiscs and a set of easy to follow instructions. Place one of the discs on the top, and spin the top. Then shine the LightPhaser onto the spinning top, and watch the images on the disc come to life!
The LightPhaser produces a strobe light, and by rotating the little wheel on the top, you can make the strobe flash faster or slower. This enables you to freeze the action, make it go forwards, or make it go backwards.
Animals leap and gallop; children run and play; kaleidoscopic patterns move and change. Discover the principles of animation, and how the mind perceives motion pictures.
You can also create your own Strobodiscs, and then watch them come to life.
