About the Switch Pitch Color Switching Sphere

The celebrated sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke once noted that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” The Switch Pitch Color Switching Sphere from Hoberman is neither advanced technology nor magic (just clever design), but it’s an easy mistake to make, because when you toss the Switch Pitch in the air it switches color! Toss it again, and it changes back. Toss it one more time, and it changes back again. Repeat, giggle, and repeat again.


How does the Switch Pitch work? It’s simple: a series of connected panels flip when it’s airborne, and they’re different colors on either side. Older kids and adults will fiddle with it and try and figure out how it works; younger kids will just throw it around and squeal with delight. The Switch Pitch ball is made of hard plastic, so we’d suggest using it over a soft surface, although they do seem to hold up well.


The Switch Pitch Color Switching Sphere from Hoberman is recommended for ages 4 and up.


Please note: this item ships assorted so colors may vary. Additionally, the image shows three Switch Pitch toys in three different stages of switching colors. Price listed is for one Switch Pitch.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
