Toroflux: A mesmerizing kinetic sculpture and an interactive "flow toy" that's like a 4th dimensional "slinky". Folds flat and pops open, surprising everyone. Comes with a mini-biner, so you can easily clip it to your bag or belt loop and bring it everywhere to share and spread the fun :) Diameter ~5" when flat. Sold individually with mini-biner.
Fun and interactive: The toroflux is also very tactile (slightly addictive to play with!) and interactive - you can put your hands through it and run it safely along your arms (bare arms work best) and pass them from arm to another, or one person to another just for fun or in a dance. Running it along a flexible tube (e.g. an extension cord) makes it look like a metallic soap bubble and is an intriguing way to observe interlocking strands of metal in motion. We discovered this unique, high-design toy a few years ago and have finally made it available in the US.
IMPORTANT: The toroflux is made of a single strand of thin metal. If it's bent or if one or more of the coils is pulled hard or roughly, it can deform and will not handle as designed. Please note that we cannot replace torofluxes that have been misused or deformed! However our warranty applies and you can send back a kinked toroflux for a half-price replacement.
