It is one of our most popular installations: suitable for all ages and you make something you can show at home. A thaumatrope (Ancient Greek: thauma = wonder, trope = turn) is a surface printed on two sides. By quickly rolling a stick or two strings between the fingers, the front and back of the thaumatrope are alternately revealed. If this happens fast enough, the two images appear to merge.
