I can’t believe someone makes… Electric paper plane launchers

Note that it carries Science Museum branding and royalties from the sale of the product help fund the venerable London museum.
Contents: base plate, battery box, rubber ring and disc, terminal box, screw and nut, motor, pulley, red connecting sleeve, wire, sucker, sticky pad, and detailed instructions with fun facts.
