We're willing to bet that a huge number of you remember this toy from your childhood. It spins like a champ, and will provide hours of enjoyment and fascination for the younger members of the family.

Once spinning, the Gyroscope will hold its position—vertical, horizontal, perched on a string, tilted, etc. Among its many virtues, it's a great science experiment, and illustrates the crucial role gyroscopes play in navigation of the high seas and in space exploration. Two gyroscopes are included in the box—one for the children and one for the bigger kids (like us).

Made In The United States.

Gyroscopic Principle

It has been a while since I've played with a gyroscope so one for myself and one to introduce the principle to some young teenager friends. Just like riding a bicycle...........

1 Gyro was well balanced and 1 was very poorly balanced and has a vibration from being out of balance. It had come apart in shipping.

Not as good as I was hoping...
Reviewed By:   (Dover, PA) 
I decided to purchase this pair of gyroscopes for my young sons but neither one of the gyroscopes seems to be well-balanced. Most of the previous reviews were good so I was expecting more along the lines of what I remember from when I was a child. Each of these would balance on its stand for maybe 20 seconds before becoming too wobbly and falling off and the boys quickly lost interest in them.

DOA
Reviewed By:   (La Habra, California) 
Huge dissapointment... Ordered as a gift, it arived well packaged, both of the gyroscopes were broken, the wire cage that contains the spinning wheel, was not welded or soddered closed. The same on both gyroscopes, which would not hold the spinning disk in place.
