has been for many years one of the nation's and world’s
leading experts on play, toys, and children's products.
With 30 years of direct experience, Dr. Auerbach includes
educationally oriented, developmental and skill building
products from the best large and small companies in her
annual award programs. This year, new to the market FunFlyStick
has been recognized as one of the 100 Best Children's Products
and one of the 10 Best Active Products.
Here is what Dr. Toy has to say about FunFlyStick: "Incredible
combination of magic and science feature this unusual, totally
innovative toy. Never before it was possible to create instant
effect of magic and levitation similar to the one possible
with FunFlyStick. FunFlyStick is a portable levitation wand
that emits static charge just by pressing a button. It works
with special precut shapes (flying toys or flyers) that
are able to receive the static charge off the wand on a
contact. Receiving the charge makes the flyers expand and
repel from the wand. Beautifully expanded metallic-looking
flying toys will “magically” float above the
FunFlyStick and can be controlled by it. Touching the floating
flyer with a hand causes instant static discharge and the
flyer collapses into a pile of tinsel. Touching it again
with the wand will bring the flyer “into life”.
FunFlyStick set includes 5 flying toys of different shapes:
three spheres, one butterfly, and one hourglass shape. The
wand demonstrates repulsion of alike charges, instant discharge,
slow dissipation of static charge, and interaction between
charged and neutral objects. Included in the set is a detailed
brochure with instructions, tips and tricks, and more. Teachers
and parents can download lesson plans and suggestions for
the subject of static electricity. This is a fun toy for
the whole family to enjoy."
