Looks GREAT. Bought as a Xmas present and delivered to my son.
Chaos Pendulum was an excellent kit and good value. I also ordered two other items which were plastic and I thought were very overpriced (£14 each) for what they were and had the appearance of a mass produced item with very poor packaging in Japanese and nothing in English to tell you about the product other than the video on Grand-Illusions. They were intended as a Christmas present but I would need to tell the intended children to watch a video to expplain what they were about. Not ideal.
Hi - glad you liked the Chaos Pendulum.
Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the Cylinder in the Box. The optical illusion - which we think is really rather good - works simply when you view the object from one side and then the other. We bring import them directly from Japan, and I must admit we had not thought to include instructions. It would mean repackaging them, which would push the price up slightly. Are the children you plan to give them to old enough to accept the challenge of finding out how they work?
Not tested yet. Too busy. Just opened the box to check. Fabulous manufacturing. Obvious precision. An overall impression of quality, just looking at the contents, so well packed.
