As the GALLOP! Scanimation® Lamp slowly turns, you will see softly-glowing images of animals magically come to life and move! The penguin waddles, the dolphin leaps out of the water and splashes back in, the hummingbird beats its wings while dipping its beak into a flower, and more. This compact, motorized lamp is the perfect tabletop conversation piece and the ideal bedside lamp. It's mesmerizing for both kids and adults!

Fully customizeable! Each of the six differently colored glowing sides―red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple―is slotted to receive a Scanimation® animal panel. Choose any six from the nine different included animal panels and drop them into the slots. You can rearrange them in your favorite order, flip them around or change them out with any of the remaining panels. Hundreds of combinations are possible!

You won't find this elegantly-designed lamp anywhere else in the world. That's because it employs our own patented Retrotechnology™! And it's powered off the wall, so there are no batteries to install or replace. Just plug it in, switch it on, and watch the magic happen!

Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:

Persistence of Vision: Scanimation is a state-of-the-art six-phase animation process that combines the "persistence of vision" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. Brings back memories of the kinetoscope, and the effect is incredible, like a Muybridge photo series springing to life—or, like a video without a screen.
