Plasma ball worked well, however must be right up against speaker and music must be turned loud to activate it. It does work with the touch of a hand. Grandson liked it very much.see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this for my 12-year-old grandson, he absolutely loves it. He loves touching the ball and watching the static electricity inside it . Now my 10-year-old grandson wants one !!see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a fun way to encourage kids to explore science. The ball is vibrant and precise. Both young and old are fascinated by the movement and researching the cause is both interesting and educational. I wish the stand was a bit heavier to make it less top heavy. A great product for the price!see moreof the reviewer's review

My daughter was excited when she opened this yesterday as a Christmas gift. She turned it on today and it's no longer working. Lasted 24 hours. It's going back tomorrow.see moreof the reviewer's review

I am really satisfied with this plasma ball. It is really ideal for anyone who simply wants a plasma ball. I've always wanted one since I was a kid, and this has a mature design/look for an adult. Looks great on my desk!
