The Levitating Lantern might be our favorite crate yet! It’s functional and magical at the same time! My daughter needed some help taping the wires down (she broke one of the connectors the first time we tried) because it’s a delicate and tight area. But other than that, it was a simple build. She loved having the choice of color for the light. I love that she is happy!
It uses two different types of force, one helps the other. It is so cool!
It didn’t take too long for my 9 yr old niece to complete. Liked the different options to change the color
