Amaze your friends and defy gravity with this amazing balancing Pteranodon.
This 20cm plastic model of a prehistoric flying Pteranodon has a large wingspan - it looks impossible, but it's simple to balance almost anywhere, appearing to defy gravity. The secret to the balancing act is all in the specially weighted nose, but it looks like a magic trick. Balance the tip of the nose on any number of objects from your finger to a pen or even your own nose!
Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Magic is popular and anything involving pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book.
