Fortune Fish

Product Details

This seemingly mysterious fortune telling fish is actually a teachable science moment! This old timey novelty toy can tell you if youre jealous, moody, or in love based off how the fish wiggles or folds while you hold it but how does it actually work? This fish is made of a material that retains water and folds based off the moisture on your palm, which the fish absorbs and makes it crinkle. Challenge your kids or your kid at heart with this fun little toy and see who can use the scientific method to figure out how it works
