Add to Wishlist

A thaumatrope is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century. A disk with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to blend into one due to the persistence of vision.

Paper, image and string! This whimsical gift will delight child and adult alike. Twist the string so that the images move so fast they become one. Watch the lion tamer bravely put his head in the lions mouth...or the seal eat the fish. The set comes with blank disks so that the child can draw their own moving scenes.

Designed in France by Moulin Roty.
