Based on a 2003 NASA space shuttle experiment to study animal life in space to test how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity, the nutrient-rich, nontoxic AntWorks™ Gel promotes healthy colony growth while viewers watch ants live and work to create series upon series of intricate tunnels. This easy-to-care-for set includes a magnifying glass, extreme zoom lens, tunnel starter tool and instruction booklet with fun ant facts. U.S. Patent pending. The transparent gel allows for “better representation of ants’ intelligent and architectural ability,” Gary Armstrong of Fascinations told TDmonthly. “The gel is also their food and water source. Ants are the perfect pet. They don’t need any care.”
— "We sell quite a few ant farms from Fascinations," said David Campbell, owner of Amazing Toys in Great Falls, Mont., when discussing science and nature best sellers with TDmonthly in summer 2007.
— Two of 29 retailers TDmonthly spoke with said ant farms from Fascinations are best-selling science toys with customers. They sell about half a dozen ant farms from Fascinations each month.
— “We can't keep them in stock,” remarked Jude Larene, co-owner of Izilla Toys in Seattle, Wash., of the AntWorks kits in his store. Of 64 retailers surveyed in August 2008, 12 percent named Antworks as a best-selling science and nature product.

Magnetic, geographic and just plain cool, this levitating globe is suspended by the force of the magnet and floats in mid-air. This ball of questions in the making is a real attention-getter.
— Kids can pass their hands above, below and around the sphere as it continues touching only air. Featuring electro-magnetic levitation and elegant styling, it includes an innovative automatic revolving feature.
— “It’s amazing. My 3-year-old was mesmerized, and so was I. We talked about magnets, levitation — real and ‘trick’ — the earth and then about things that fly. It was a great way to learn without even trying,” said Donna Kahn of Miami, Fla.
— Josh Cusher of The Museum Place in Spokane, Wash., explained: “Everyone wants one. They’re uncanny in how they defy gravity. They are sold both for the child, the adult and gifts. It’s an unusual conversation piece.”

This product defies well-known scientific theorem by featuring one permanent magnet floating on top of another. A globe (or any suitable object) can be made to levitate above a specially engineered, electromagnetic base. It appears to defy the Earnshaw-Braunbeck theorem, more than a century old. Launch date: April 2007.
— The fact that this globe seems to defy a long-known scientific theorem related to magnets is one reason it received a TDmonthly Innovations 2007 award. It also makes a great desk ornament, sure to stop all passersby who just can’t help but take a closer look.

An ant farm and an art project!  An elegant acrylic case shipped with a multi-colored filling made with finely ground glass, the ant farm starts like a sand sculpture.  Children can design their ant habitat by carefully pouring the colors into layers and hills.  Detailed instructions are included on how to infuse the sand with sugar water while sending away from the ants.  After the ants are added, the ant farm becomes self-sustaining, requiring no further feeding.  Then, as the ants tunnel and build their home inside the ant farm, they alter the sand sculpture, piling the colored sand on top where they have been digging.  Comes with habitat, special building sand in five colors, facts and instructions booklet, zoom lens, and mail-in coupon for ants.

Using Bernoulli’s principle Fascinations has engineered a way to float a disc in the air over 18 inches high. Of course at that height it can become difficult to balance any object on a cushion of air but that’s where all the fun begins. How long can it stay in the air and how long can it fly? It’s cooler than magic because it’s real science at work.
