Zen gardens can be a relaxing escape right on your desk - drawing little circles in the sand, placing the rocks, leveling the sand, and starting again. Except one day you come in and your little rake is gone. That makes it challenging to be Zen. Give your Zen garden an upgrade with the Sandscript Automatic Sand-Drawing Machine from Think Geek! Measuring about 11 1/2-inches in diameter, this clever device uses magnets that enable you to control a ball with three dials, tracing patterns in the sand. Make symmetrical mandala patterns or randomized doodles on command. Set it and let it go, or make tiny adjustments continuously. Ages 3 and up.
The Sandscript Automatic Sand-Drawing Machine comes with two steel balls - make your selection based on what level of detail suits your design aesthetic. And when you're ready to start over, just shake it like an Etch A Sketch, and your ephemeral designs will disappear into a blank canvas of sand. Includes Sandscript automatic sand-drawing machine, 2 stainless steel balls, 1 package of sand, and AC power adapter.
