Who remembers these Spirograph sets? My brother had one we were kids and he was obsessed with it! They really are very cool toys (if you can call them that?). For those who don’t know, the Spirograph “produces mathematical roulette curves of the variety technically known as hypotrochoids and epitrochoids” (thank you Wikipedia!) – so there you go! Basically they make super cool geometric designs that kids can draw pretty easily using different coloured pens. This set is missing two of its pens (but a quick trip to the stationery store will sort that out), as well as two of the plastic circles, but given that it was probably played with loads I think it’s condition is pretty impressive – and what’s even more impressive is that nearly fifty years after it was first deigned, Spirograph was voted Toy of the Year finalist in 2014!
A super cool toy that will hopefully manage to draw your kiddiwinks away from their screens for an hour or two!
P.S. This is the original 1965 edition of Spirograph!
Dimensions: The box measures 32cm long x 27cm wide x 3cm deep
