Toroflux: A mesmerizing kinetic sculpture and an interactive "flow toy" that's like a 4th dimensional "slinky". Folds flat and pops open, surprising everyone. Comes with a mini-biner, so you can easily clip it to your bag or belt loop and bring it everywhere to share and spread the fun :) Diameter ~5" when flat. Sold individually with mini-biner.
Fun and interactive: The toroflux is also very tactile (slightly addictive to play with!) and interactive - you can put your hands through it and run it safely along your arms (bare arms work best) and pass them from arm to another, or one person to another just for fun or in a dance. Running it along a flexible tube (e.g. an extension cord) makes it look like a metallic soap bubble and is an intriguing way to observe interlocking strands of metal in motion. We discovered this unique, high-design toy a few years ago and have finally made it available in the US.
IMPORTANT: The toroflux is made of a single strand of thin metal. If it's bent or if one or more of the coils is pulled hard or roughly, it can deform and will not handle as designed. Please note that we cannot replace torofluxes that have been misused or deformed!
I purchased a Toroflux from emazing lights quite some time ago, I think 2015, when I received it it was hard to get the Toroflux to flow from one arm to the next, over time the metal became tighter and it became increasingly hard to maneuver the flow toy. I assumed I just had big arms/the toroflux was not designed for someone with my arm thickness. My friend purchased an official Toroflux from emzing lights a couple months ago and to my surprise his was either bigger/looser and I had no issues manuvering it from arm to arm - a big step up in flowability from my purchase. I decided to repurchase the Toroflux from emazing lights assuming I would be receiving the same product that my friend recently purchased. This was not the case, instead the toroflux that arrived again was either smaller/tighter because it DID NOT function the same. Now I know this issue is not on Emazing lights...and I absolutely LOVE the toroflux...but I would not recommend purchasing this product at emazing lights for their price if you have thicker arms. There seems to be no QA for this product and no consistency in production. You can find the official toroflux cheaper elsewhere online - this might be a better bet if you plan on buying them till you receive on that functions and flows properly for your arm size.
