General Information
Material:Wood
Size:Width 140mm x Height 150mm
Weight:90g
Production time:●Maximum 3 months
Proper handling:● The dyes are not colorfast, so colors may fade if brought into contact with water. ● The top should be handled carefully at all times. ● Do not drop or impact the watermelon, it is hollow and may crack or break.
How to use:1. Set the cucumber onto the stick protruding from the watermelon. 2. Wind the string around the stick 15 or 16 times in the clockwise direction -- it will not hum otherwise. 3. Alternatively, #1 and #2 could be switched, that is, wind the string first then set the cucumber onto the stick above the string -- your choice. 4. Place the watermelon on a tabletop or other flat surface, and while holding the cucumber in place, pull HARD on the string. 5. Remove the cucumber from the stick. The watermelon will start spinning, all the while producing an audible hum !
