Perhaps you had one as a kid, or perhaps you’ve seen them on TV commercials. Regardless of which it is, most of us who were born in the ’70s and ’80s are familiar with the Spirograph, a geometric drawing toy which is used to draw mathematical roulette curves. Developed by a British engineer named Denys Fisher, these toys began hitting the shelves of stores back in 1965. However, the original spirograph was actually invented by a mathematician named Bruno Abakanowicz sometime in the late 19th century, in order to help calculate area delimited by curves. Today, many varieties of the toy can be purchased, and now if you own a 3D printer you can simply 3D print your own.
Here is the original Spirograph set, item number 401 dated 1967. My copy is absolutelymint in un-played-with condition. All parts are present including the paper andbaseboard which has no pinholes in it.
The Original Spirograph Design Set is the classic toy young artists can use to create endless awesomely unique designs. The symmetrical, detailed, brilliantly-coloured designs are fun for kids and adults alike. Use the included pens or your own pens and pencils. Includes Spiro-Putty to hold the paper securely in place and step-by-step instructions.
I’m only mentioning this set in hopes that you do not purchase only to be disappointed. The original Kenner Spirograph kits from the 60s can still be purchased on Ebay for around $30 and are much coveted. I’m considering buying a new set to replace my current because I really enjoyed this project. I’m personally looking at one of the Spirograph kits by Kahootz (they have excellent reviews).
