Balancing Toys have been around for centuries, teaching children and adults about the laws of physics. In Victorian times, they were first made to demonstrate the workings of counterweights and centrifugal force. In an era where the laws of gravity and electricity seemed magical, balance toys became very popular. Even though we now understand the mystery of the laws of gravity, there is still something fascinating and amusing in watching a balanced object lean and sway. All hand-made of cast-iron & hand-painted.
