What It Is

What It Is

Parents may remember the classic Magic 8 Ball, but now there is a new "fortune-telling" toy. The Mystic Pyramid is an electronic fortuneteller with more than 100 phrases—50 of them are positive. Kids ask the pyramid anything they want and then press down on top of the pyramid. The pyramid will light up and give an answer, such as "The timing couldn't be better" or "Your luck may be changing." The responses are electronically randomized so there are minimum repeats. Mystic Pyramid turns itself off when not in use.

Why It’s Fun

We're not sure why everyone turned to a toy eight ball with pertinent life questions, but trying to guess the future is a time-tested entertainment device. (And, yes, this is "for entertainment only.") The Mystic Pyramid capitalizes on the popularity of fortune-telling excitement and adds cool lights and sounds for today's kids. Of course, like the Magic 8 Ball, the Mystic Pyramid can't really predict the future, but it's kind of fun to hear what answer it gives all the same.

Who It’s For

Mystic Pyramid is for ages 6 and up.

It makes a great desk toy as well as a diverting toy for kids.

What to Be Aware of

Mystic Pyramid comes with three AA batteries.
