Mathmos Babushka Light - Modern Version of the Russian Nesting Doll
Those cool wooden Matryoshka Russian Nested Dolls have finally entered the 21st century with this cool new Mathmos Babushka Light. Traditionally Russian nested dolls consisted of a large wooden figure that could then be separated to reveal a small figure inside, which could also be separated to reveal smaller and smaller figures down to a very tiny figurine in the center. The Mathmos Babushka Light is the modern, lit version of this concept where the dolls are revealed in a sequence of different colored lights and effects. When it lights red, the infinity effect is visible revealing a seemingly never ending row of red dolls. When blue, the edges of the larger dolls are then lit. It also cycles through red to pink and purple and on to blue displaying different effects as it goes. The lamp can easily be turned on and off by pushing down on the top of the light. Kind of a unique and hypnotic nightlight.
