Hoberman Rainbow Sphere Large
This is the classic version of the expanding Hoberman Sphere, an award-winning toy that is designed to inspire children’s imaginations. You can throw it, bounce it, kick it, spin it, roll it and even wear it or suspend it in air! It expands from 24cm to 76cm diameter, with a magical motion that amazes everyone that sees it.
Throw the Sphere to someone else, spinning it slightly as you throw it, and it will open in mid-air. Or hold a Sphere fully open with two hands and toss it down to the floor. If you spin it towards you it will bounce back into your hands. Or hold the Sphere open with a hand on either side and see how quickly you can open and close it. The list of things you can do with the Sphere is endless.
The Sphere comes with a pulley and instructions on how to hang the Sphere as a cool, kinetic mobile, an educational booklet about the geometry of the Sphere, and a ‘21 Cool Things to Do’ activity sheet.
A Hoberman sphere is an isokinetic structure patented by Chuck Hoberman, that resembles a geodesic dome, but is capable of folding down to a fraction of its normal size by the scissor-like action of its joints.
The largest existing Hoberman sphere is in the AHHAA Science Centre in Tartu, Estonia. Fully expanded, it is 5.9 metres in diameter. The motorized sphere weighs 340 kilograms, is constructed of aircraft-grade aluminium, and continually oscillates between its compact and expanded states. The sphere is suspended above the Centre's Science Court and is actuated with a computer-based motion control system. The system opens and closes the sphere in a programmed series of lyrical motions choreographed to music, lighting and special effects.
Size: 24 cm diameter expanding to 76 cm

The Hoberman sphere is a hit with my 7 year old. My 3 year old loves playing with it too. It seems more robust than I was expecting and when expanded the kids have even been getting inside it!
Daughter loves it but think a smaller one would have been a better buy as large one is too big around house.
