If you thought that fiber optic cables were only good for telephone, television, or Internet applications, think again. Fiber optics have been used in a wide array of consumer products for years, including everything from Christmas trees to wigs to toys.
In fact, some of my son’s favorite toys are various fiber optic wands that we’ve purchased over the years. He just loves waving these things around and watching the lights change colors and weave trails through the air. They actually are pretty cool, so it’s easy to see why kids would be mesmerized by these things.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a cheap, fun way to keep your children entertained, check out some fiber optic toys the next time you go shopping!
