Stretch Mind-strong

Stretch your mind to playful, new heights with an interactive paperweight that redefines mind games. Simply reach into this noggin to put your gray matter to good use with a malleable eraser that keeps your mind--and paper--clear. And when you're stuck in your head, Oliver Wendell Holmes' brainy quote offers food for thought: "A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." Paperweight made in Rhode Island. Eraser made in Malaysia.

Comments about Mind Stretched Paperweight:

I gave this paperweight to my neurologist for his desk before my brain surgery. After the surgery he thanked me for the wonderful head. I was totally embarrassed! The surgery was a success, he deserved it!

    Comments about Mind Stretched Paperweight:

    I purchased this paperweight as a door prize type gift for our office holiday party. It was a perfect gift for men or women, and it was envied by everyone! I wish it was a tad bit bigger, but that is the only downside. It is still very creative, unique and entertaining. It is perfect for the ADD male who wound up with it. :)

        I bought this as a gift for my doctor after he performed brain surgery on me and saved my life. I gave it to him to show my appreciation for his dedication to his field and because it was the nicest and most appropriate gift concerning the "brain" that I could find. BTW, he LOVED IT! Thank you uncommongoods for having such a special, high quality yet very reasonably priced products!!!

                Quality item. Despite what previous reviewers said about the size of the item, it was still smaller than I expected. Still, a very unique item.
