Magnets in the base and rod repel each other, enabling the rod to levitate and spin. The small contact area of the pin end against the glass means very little friction, so a small spin lasts a long time. See how long your spin will last!
Contains magnets and glass, so not suitable for children under three years of age or anyone with magnet-sensitive health issues.
