A Thaumatrope is a two sided disk, usually made of paper, with one part of an image on one side, the other on the reverse. When spun, the two images combine. They were very popular in the Victorian era.

An acrobat is shown on one side and a horse on the other. When spun, the acrobat appears to be balancing on the horse. No mean feat!

The chain is long so you can even do this whilst wearing it. An excellent distraction in a boring class or office!
