Got a science mad kid at home? This Science Museum Plasma Ball Plus looks like a great gift, and it's a bargain at just £5.99 from Argos, down from £9.99.
This plasma ball with give an amazing light show, reacting to your touch and also the beat of music!
The electric conductivity of your hands or a finger on the outer ball will attract lightning bolts and create a spectacular effect, and it will also pulse to loud music!
It can be powered with the USB power cable included, or with 4 AAA batteries which are not included.
It's suitable for children aged 6 and over, and the reviews are great.
If my son didn't already have one of these I would be snapping it up, as they really are impressive objects, not exactly a 'toy' but as a novelty for anyone interested in science they are brilliant.
There's lots in stock for free reserve and collect from stores, or home delivery costs £3.95.
