Me. Loved it as a kid.
Talk about a blast from the past. I had one a a kid
The thing came with crappy pens, though...
I had one too
damn right..I'm still pissed about thatlthumbsdown:
I had one, they ruled!!!
Spirograph belongs here:
I got one when I was little. My grandfather was an architect, and had a blast with it.
I had one.
He designed a squiggly building?
I had one and loved it.
We're working on some new packaging designs and the designer is usually one design element that I always refer to as the spirograph, he just doesn't know that's what I call it.
I think so.
I asked for one when I was 5, but got a Spiro Agnew action figure instead.
Still got it. Willow is beginning to figure it out.
i had one, and spin art that was cool but smelt really bad
Did it have a kung-fu grip?
I did! I loved it. I also had a paint and swirl! Too fun!
The long thin cogs were the hardest.
Wasn't it the worst when you changed pens & cogs for the final part of the design you were working on, and the damn cog slipped and made your cool line design jump?
I loved that thing when I was a kid. Those pens went to shyt real fast, and then you could never find a ball point that would fit the little holes.
Do they still make the Spirograph?
I had one and can say it definitely lead to teenage marijuana use.
good times, i loved mine
The new ones don't look nearly as cool... but maybe the pens are better.
Oooooo....They have a Travel Spirograph
whoa you work on packaging? what industry/function?
(i only ask cuz i'm a box engineer too)
nah, that smell was probably you. i know i smelled bad as a kid cuz i was always running around and playing in the dirt like some sort of hippy.
The coolest drawing trick I remember as a kid was parabolic line design.
2D stuff is pretty boring though. I did origami extensively instead. Some of my favorite geometrics were the dodecahedron, hyperbolic parabola, and rotating tetrahedra. I made all three at work during a origami binge I had one week at work - crappy camera phone shot:
