Ask the Pyramid

Remember the Magic 8 Ball you played with as a kid? The Mystic Pyramid is a modern update to the "answer my burning question" classic. And there’s no age limit when it comes to the Mystic Pyramid’s fortune-telling wisdom. Whether it’s perched on your desk at the office or in the center of sleeping bags at a child's slumber party, people of all ages find it irresistible. When you have a question on your mind, simply focus your energy on your query and push down on the pyramid. The Mystic Pyramid speaks more than 100 phrases, and the pyramid glows with synchronized light effects when it replies. The creator is Stuart Kaplan, a former stock broker with a penchant for tarot cards. He’s the founder of U.S. Games Systems, a small Connecticut company that makes award-winning family and children's card games. Maybe it’s not the most appropriate tool for making stock picks, but as a White Elephant gift or that perfect present for the relative who has everything, we think the Mystic Pyramid is a fun way to get all your questions answered.

    Hi there…I’m Lynn and I helped develop the Mystic Pyramid (what a blast!) I’d be delighted to answer any questions you might have. I can’t remember ever being this excited about a new product. The Mystic Pyramid seems to be as big a hit with adults as it is with youngsters. Perhaps it’s the nostalgia factor—many of us remember playing with fortune-telling toys from our childhoods. The first time people ask a question and press down on the Pyramid, they are a bit surprised when it lights up and delivers such an interesting response in this deep, resonant voice. We have a Pyramid in our conference room at work, and we just can’t seem to resist asking it for advice during meetings! It certainly livens things up! Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
