These spin us right round baby round round – The Spirograph range expands

The original colouring-in set, Spirograph, is in ship-shape with the continued expansion of their range and manages to appeal to kids and kidults in equal measure. The prices of the sets range between £12 and £25 so an ideal gift or a rainy day purchase. The definitive Spirograph toy was developed by the British engineer Denys Fisher between 1962 and 1964 by creating drawing machines with Meccano pieces. Fisher exhibited his spirograph at the 1965 Nuremberg International Toy Fair. It was subsequently produced by his company. Now it is Playmonster and Hasbro driving the innovation further, a cracking plaything for artists of all abilities.




So go grab a set, stick on your Spirograph shirt and start spinning and coluring in those creations – Not the shirt.
