A Qwirly™ enhances the beauty of any home, office or other space. It is at once a work of art, a source of entertainment and a catalyst for conversation. The following are some frequently asked questions.
For whom is a Qwirly™ "a perfect gift"?
A Qwirly™ surprises and delights people young and old, and everyone in between. A Qwirly™ is not to be used as a toy for infants and very young children; the Qwirly™ mini contains a small marble, which may pose a choking hazard, while the Qwirly™ Classic and Qwirly™ MEGA have pointed tails that could potentially cause injury. For everyone else, a Qwirly™ is a perfect gift for birthdays, holidays and any other occasion. Choose a Qwirly™ that fits the recipient's personality and surroundings. Not sure which one? With a gift card, they can choose their own.
What is a Qwirly™ made of (hint: it's not plastic)?
In our world of cheap, disposable merchandise, it is refreshing to find an affordable yet attractive item made of age-old materials that are pleasant to look at and touch: namely, metal and glass. A Qwirly™ is constructed of premium steel and comes in two metal finishes: silver and copper. A Qwirly™ will not break, bend or wear out with normal use. Qwirly™ spheres are made of high-quality glass, crystal and gemstone.
What is the best way to display a Qwirly™?
There are endless possibilities for displaying a Qwirly™. On a desk, a Qwirly™ mini becomes a constant companion. Don't be surprised it you find yourself typing with one hand and twirling with the other. A Qwirly™ mini adds a touch of elegance and fun to any coffee table, bookshelf or counter top. A Qwirly™ Classic fits perfectly beneath a desk shelf or kitchen cabinet, in the corner of a room, or in practically any nook or cranny. A Qwirly™ MEGA livens up any open space with its unmistakable presence. It is a work of art and a conversation piece that can't be missed — or beat. How you display a Qwirly™, and which style(s) and metal finish / color sphere combination(s) you select, is strictly a matter of personal choice.
For flexible display options, check out the accessories, which include hanging chains, extra swivel hooks, wall brackets and even small motors that twirl intermittently in 30-second intervals to keep your Qwirly™ in motion.
What is the best way to twirl a Qwirly™ by hand?
Every Qwirly™ comes with a swivel hook accessory that allows for easy motion as well as an optional twirl grip that makes for happy fingers and even easier twirling action. Just grab the grip or connector between the thumb and the forefinger and give it a gentle spin. Watch the Qwirly™ twirl for up to 200 rotations. A forward twirl gives the illusion that the spinner is moving upward while a backward twirl gives the illusion that it is moving downward. Most people need only a couple of practices to enter the ranks of Master Twirler. The grip of the Qwirly™ MEGA may be perched beyond reach, but that's not a problem; it can be easily twirled by the tail.
Can Qwirly™ spheres be used interchangeably?
Every Qwirly™ comes with one color sphere. A range of other color spheres as well as premium spheres from our special collections are available for the Qwirly™ Classic (and, soon, for the Qwirly™ MEGA, as well). The collections include celebration spheres (e.g., glow-in-the-dark and cut crystal), planet spheres, and sports ball spheres. Why limit yourself to one sphere when you can change the appearance of your Qwirly™ whenever the mood strikes you? Or customize it to reflect, for example, your favorite sport? Swapping in a new sphere is as easy as pie. Here is how it's done.
How is a Qwirly™ packaged and what is involved in assembling it?
Every Qwirly™ comes packaged in an attractive box (inside a protective shipping box) and wrapped in a plastic sleeve to guard against scratches. Assembly is quick and easy. It is simply a matter of attaching the swivel hook, connector and optional twirl grip (shown below) to the metal spinner and then attaching the other end of the connector to the Q-stand, in the case of a Qwirly™ mini. In the case of a Qwirly™ Classic or Qwirly™ MEGA, the connector should attach to the underside of a shelf or cabinet, the ceiling, a rafter or other support surface using a cup hook or an eye hook (not included) that can be securely positioned.
What are the options for customizing and personalizing a Qwirly™?
There are multiple options for customizing and personalizing a Qwirly™ (and more coming soon!). The spheres can be laser-engraved with any text or image to create a truly personalized gift. What better way to mark a special event than to give guests a Qwirly™ tailor-made for the occasion? Even the boxes can be customized. Check out Qwirly™ Custom for examples. Minimum order quantities are required. To discuss your specific needs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the return policy for a Qwirly™ or other items?
If, for any reason, you decide that you are not completely satisfied with your purchase of a Qwirly™ or a related item from our accessories or spheres collections, you may return it to us within 60 days of the original ship date for a full refund. Please see our Satisfaction Guarantee for conditions and instructions.
What is the origin of the Qwirly™ tagline?
"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." The Qwirly™ tagline is a fitting quote from the nineteenth-century author, philosopher and naturalist Henry David Thoreau. With a Qwirly™, as with many things in life, it may be that what we look at cannot be fully understood until we actually see it. Now there's something to ponder....
Find your Qwirly™. There is a perfect one for everyone — starting with you.
