Funny thing... once you swirl a Pet Tornado, you have to do it again (...and again... and again...).

Nature's most destructive force can be observed and enjoyed. Shake the Pet Tornado clockwise and watch the funnel form. F1-F5 tornado information included. Perfect addition to weather science curriculum.

A fun science novelty, an attention-getter for your study of weather, or... display a few Pet Tornadoes at your Science Fair and the crowd gathers round!

    Great science toy
    Posted 6/12/2014 by Mari Harpham

    I purchased 25 pet tornadoes for a camp for children who were affected by an F5 tornado that hit our town last year. The tornado hit during school hours and 2 elementary schools were hit. 7 children died at one of the schools. The recovery process has been ongoing. While we have made great progress, there is still much to do. We believe that understanding the science of tornadoes, may help with some of the fears. Our camp is still 2 weeks away, but a toy that can help is of a great service to our community. I have great confidence that the children will like this pet tornado. While a big tornado is vicious, a pet one just might be manageable and the thought of a "pet" may just put a smile on the faces of the these children.

    Pet Tornado
    Posted 2/25/2014 by A Grandma

    Really a fun toy for someone fascinated with tornadoes. My grandson took it for "show and tell" at school and talked about other tornado events he has learned about.
