The only issue we faced was some of the cogs just fell out the box and others you had to force out. It kept Asti entertained long enough to not ask about video games. I think out of the two i enjoyed it more Ami and Son Son also attempted to have a go too, although at ages 2 and 3 they didn't quite get the concept.
All in all great fun for a rainy day. See above some of the creations that Asti made sadly he gave up after about 5 minutes. I could see my Ami when she is a bit older loving this like I did. The Spirograph is aimed at children 8+ although my little ones did have a go and enjoy it too.
So why not bring back lease of life into an old toy and remember those good old days.
Check out the Spirograph website for more info here. Also why not get involved in the Spirograph Young designer of the year competition too via cool creat club too.
This set retails at £24.99 and available in most toy retailers.
