Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre

Flickerscopes or thaumatropes were a popular toy for adults and children during the Victorian era. A thaumatrope is a disk with pictures on both sides that is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to blend into one due to the persistence of vision.

Come into the Museum to create your own design. The designs can be as elaborate or as simple as you want!
