An ideal gift for film and animation lovers. Invented in 1877 by Charles-Émile Reynaud, the prax creates the illusion of moving scenes. Insert an animation strip into the outer ring. Turn the prax manually and a rapid succession of the images is reflected on mirrors located on the inner ring, bringing them to life and creating what seems to be action. Acrylic, metal, paper, mirrors. Includes 20 animation strips. Classic size is 9"h x 8" diameter. Also available in Mini size of 7½"h x 5½" diameter (sold separately as XF0696). Made in Spain.
