If you’re unfamiliar with the YouTube channel Grand Illusions, you’re really missing out.

Hosted by toy collector Tim Rowett, each new video on the channel shows off an interesting toy, novelty or trick from Rowett’s collection.

A few days ago a video was uploaded focusing on the Magneturn, a toy that spins in random directions thanks to opposing magnets.

In the video description it mentions that just 18 of these toys were for sale at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, so you’re out of luck if you’d like one right now.

Thankfully a kind soul on Thingiverse has uploaded the files to 3D print one yourself. All you need is some magnets and the free files, and you can make your own.

See it in action in below, but make sure you watch the Grand Illusions video first.
