Give your child the wonder of a toy you played with when you were little! Even the packaging on this gyroscope will make you think of your childhood. Produced since 1917, the gyroscope has been a classic educational toy for generations. It continues to fascinate young and old alike with its mysterious force that seems to defy gravity. An excellent tool to teach gyroscopic inertia, the gyroscope will provide hours of creative play. Gyroscope technology is used in numerous applications of everyday life such as guidance and navigation systems in ships, planes and spacecrafts; in accurate mapping and survey work; in oil drilling and even motion picture making. Each gyroscope is packed in a retro folding carton with original Tedco graphics. Includes starting string, pedestal and instructions for several amazing tricks. Winner of the coveted Parents' Choice Gold Award by the Parents' Choice Foundation. Made In USA. For ages 8+.
The gyroscope is such a simple idea that it's tempting for toy manufacturers to make them cheaply. But the cheaply made ones usually don't have a dense flywheel or good bearings--and they don't work. The Chandler is a delightful exception: all-metal and precision made, it also comes with a simple instruction sheet that contains a number of tricks you probably wouldn't have thought of. A great toy for children and physicists of all ages. Parental supervision will be necessary to avoid frustration for children under 6: these things don't work unless you get them to spin fast. --Richard Farr
