How it works

The toy is a magic pet and is inside a clear durable plastic globe is surrounded by Orbeeez balls which play around with the light transmission so that the child cannot see the toy behind the apparently clear Orbeeez balls inside the globe which are placed around the toy. The magic pet toy figures seem to not exist, it has become invisible.

For adults magic is entertaining, for children it is wondrous, look at any child watching a magic trick, see how their eyes light up in surprise. This toy offers apparent magic and the design of the toy lets the child repeat the magic trick as many times as he/she wishes to do. Simply by adding water, the identity of the toy inside is rapidly revealed, prior to adding water the magic toy identity is impossible to see or figure out. A child can peer into the clear plastic sphere from any angle but never be able to see enough to guess the identity of the toy, this can only be achieved through unscrewing the secure top lid and pouring in a small amount of water.

The magic does not stop here, pour out the water and the colorful toy will again be hidden, bring back the water and the tot magically reappears. Within seconds the plastic balls surrounding the toy seem to vanish and the toy is revealed in absolute clarity. There are a total of twenty collectible toy figures and this current deal offers two toys to set off a child on the route for collecting all twenty. Your child has a target, twenty new magical surprises to build up a superb collection of highly appealing pet toys which seem to appear through magic.

Social Development

Social Development

A very social toy with magic and educational tones, this magically created pet/toy introduces a child to the concepts and innovation which are achieved through thoughtful design, the family can join in when the moment comes to use water to make the toy figurine magically appear or vanish back to being hidden by the inventively designed pellets. This toy is a social asset between children within a family or their friends.


The clever design invokes curiosity and interest from children, they know a toy is inside the plastic globe but they cannot see it. Children can hold the globe, look at it from every angle but no matter what they do they cannot see the toy. This product is smooth to handle, no sharp edges to harm eager young hands, very easy to grip, and the functions are designed as user-friendly for young children.

It is a challenge for makers to come up with designs which are appealing to young curious minds, this product has a shape which is a globe and within the globe is hidden a surprise which requires some magic to reveal the unknown surprise. To solve the secret the design requires the child to carefully add water and then as if through magic the surprise will come and the child will see the colorful toy figure.

When designing a toy into a plastic globe the potential problems are handling and stability, it is not easy to place a plastic globe on a flat children's dresser table without the globe rolling of the surface and getting broken when it hits the floor.

The designers came up with a perfect solution, the clear plastic globe is fitted on a durable plastic mount to ensure that wherever a child places it, the globe will stay in place and not roll away. Children playing with water can lead to problems, such as spillage onto the floor which in itself can become a hazard, step on the water on a tiled floor and you will slide and fall over. The design features present a small area at the top of the globe which means water has to be carefully controlled by a child when pouring in the water to create magic. The top can then be put in place to seal the water inside the globe, lot’s of fun with no watery mess. The overall design is very child friendly and practical.


Safety has been in the mind of designers, the top unit of the container is fitted with a turn key which is attached to the toy figure so that a child can turn it around inside the container and even remove the toy easily without having to remove the pellets/beads. It is equally easy to use the turn key attachment to put the tor back inside. Water can lead to the growth of mold if care is not taken, if any signs of mold start to appear, you can obtain new pellets/beads easily to replace the old beads.

Safety is thoughtfully designed into every aspect of this children's innovative fun toy, The globe housing the hidden toy contains purpose-designed pellets which have features which help to hide the toy. These pellets are a risk to children under 4-5 years old and adult supervision is advised because inquisitive very young children can be tempted to put these in the mouth and this would be dangerous, a choking hazard is obvious.

Even with older children, parents should warn the child about potential hazards. The best place for the pellets is for them to stay inside the globe-shaped container where they can pose a potential risk. When the pellets are inside the globe and water is added the toy will reveal itself when the water is drained out the pellets will make the toy disappear, there is no reason to remove the pellets.

In fact, removing the purpose-designed pellets will stop the functionality and magic of this toy, when the pellets are removed they can easily be lost and this means the magic characteristics of the toys will be lost.


All the materials used in the making of this product are synthetic and selected because they are child safe and friendly to children. These materials offer a good long life because they are durable enough to stand up to the rigors of regular play which a child can produce.
