Description 

Toy gyroscopes have been demonstrating the law of action and reaction for over 100 years. It is a classic educational toy that continues to fascinate with its mysterious gravity-defying force. Gyroscopes are at the heart of modern gyro-controlled guidance and navigation systems used on ships, airplanes, and spacecraft.

This Tedco Precision gyroscope is a modern version of the classic Tedco gyroscope. Utilizing a precision plastic wheel and frame with ball bearings, this gyroscope can be started with a T handle rip cord for quicker and easier use.

Ages 8+. Made in USA. Colors may vary.

Tedco 'Nostaligic' gyroscope includes...

  • The Gyroscope.
  • Pedestal/tower.
  • Pull string.
  • T-handle Rip Cord.
  • Instructions.

Your gyroscope will spin merrily on its pedestal ... dance on a string tightrope ... balance perfectly on the lip of a drinking glass.

Do these other astounding tricks...

  • Place the spinning gyroscope on a tight wire or string, on the edge of an unbreakable drinking glass. On the edge of a yardstick or ruler, or on the edge of any sturdy surface.
  • Place the spinning gyroscope so that it balances on the horizontal frame member. Place a second spinning gyro on the end of the first and they will maintain balance and position together.
  • Suspend the spinning gyroscope in a loop made by doubling the string. The gyroscope will maintain any angle above or below the horizontal at the bottom of the loop.
