When I was tiny, my favorite toy in the whole wide world was Spirograph. Ok, so, when I was very tiny, it was the sit-n-spin. The spirograph was a little bit older, but still rather tiny.
It was an exercise in patience, creativity, engineering, design, and so much more. It took me forever to get an absolutely perfect one, where my pen didn’t bleed or skip, the gears lined up with smooth accuracy, and I was able to switch pens to make different colors multiple times. My parents STILL have that one cut out and hanging on our fridge downstairs.
While this isn’t the exact one I did, it is the exact design I did for that first perfect one.
Now, thanks to a fabulously simple design (made out of bamboo, too, instead of plastic) Rocking Frog just made me go back to that little me. I want this. Soooooo much.
