From a land far, far away comes wands so magical, so spectacular, they’re illegal in 15 fairytale lands and Hogwarts. Filled with pixie dust from the fairies of Never-Never Land and magic from Gandalf’s staff, these magical Fun Fly Sticks contain enough enchantment and wizardry to put the Wizards of Waverly Place to shame. You can tell just how much sorcery is in these wands by how they are able to make things levitate. What?!? We’re not messing around, the amazing Fun Fly Stick can really make objects float in midair!
The Fun Fly Stick is an ingenious battery operated static electricity generator that allows you to float tinsel shapes on a cloud of electrons. Press the button on the Fun Fly Stick for a few seconds to generate a static charge. Drop the tinsel shape onto the stick to quickly transfer the negative charge to the tinsel. Since like charges repel each other, the negatively charged tinsel shape floats above the negatively charged stick. The learning curve is about two minutes and you’re ready to amaze everyone with the Fun Fly Stick.
Recommended for children ages 14 and up.

How Does It Work?
Press the button on the Fun Fly Stick for a few seconds to generate a negative static charge. Drop the tinsel shape onto the stick to quickly transfer the negative charge to the tinsel. Since like charges repel each other, the negatively charged tinsel shape floats above the negatively charged stick. If you want to impress someone with your newly acquired knowledge, just tell them that the Fun Fly Stick is a demonstration of “electrostatic propulsion and the repulsion of like charges.” Okay, if you really want to impress someone, just make the shapes float!
What Does It Teach?
The Fun Fly Stick is a wand that includes a small Van de Graaff generator that creates a static-electric charge by separating electrons and protons. All you have to do is a press a button and you’ve created enough static electricity to levitate items! It’s the perfect way for young scientists to experience the power of electric charges, attraction, and repulsion.
