Product Description

Size: 1 Pack

Amazon.com

The gyroscope is such a simple idea that it's tempting for toy manufacturers to make them cheaply. But the cheaply made ones usually don't have a dense flywheel or good bearings--and they don't work. The Chandler is a delightful exception: all-metal and precision made, it also comes with a simple instruction sheet that contains a number of tricks you probably wouldn't have thought of. A great toy for children and physicists of all ages. Parental supervision will be necessary to avoid frustration for children under 6: these things don't work unless you get them to spin fast. --Richard Farr

Product Description

Produced since 1917, the Gyroscope has been a classic educational toy for generations. It continues to fascinate young and old alike with its mysterious force that seems to defy gravity. "Made in USA"

It's a great, fun product. :)

I put the string through it and spun it and it balanced for a few seconds and fell over and the center spinning wheel fell out!

This product is not very good; it is not made well.

The gyroscope looked pretty good on the website, but I probably should have looked at the price and reviews a little more closely. When I was a kid, I had one that was great. I wanted to show my son a simple physics toy that I liked and used.
This one, the frame wasn't closed together and welded, so any pressure while winding it up caused the center spinning portion to come loose and fall out. The size was smaller than I expected from the pictures, but that was probably my own oversight.

We got to use it a total of 5 or 6 times before it was rendered useless.(Also, had to adjust the seating of the pins at first in order to allow it to spin more than 8 seconds.)

Even for the price, stay away. It's not worth it.

The gyroscope is fine but come with a rather short string that prevents attaining its full rotational speed. Gyroscope spins well with little friction, but if you drop it, it can break into its components. Fortunately, when this happened, it was easy to put back together.

This gyroscope is pretty awesome. Wind up the string, pull it, and you'll have about a minute or so of action. The gyroscope can really balance on the tip of a pencil, or on the base included in the box. It uses scientific principles, and when it slows down it will sometimes spin horizontally on the base! Very cool!

The original Tedco gyroscope is great fun while it lasts, but you might want to invest in a heavier duty model--this particular one gets bent out of shape the first time you drop it on a hard surface. I give it four stars because it introduced me to the sheer wonder that is the gyroscope; everyone who plays with it is amazed and wants to know how it works. Get one for every kid in your family, and maybe all the neighbor kids too. Science was never more fun.

This is a very cheap toy. Poor finish, sloppy tolerances. Had a slight imbalance and would vibrate and lose speed quickly. The vibration makes most of the usual gyroscope tricks impossible.

Then it spun off the table and promptly broke. Perhaps that's why they offer the two-pack?

Very disappointing... the gyro was not balanced.not smooth spin.. slowed quickly because of friction gyro touching post and the outer rim (gimbal) broke day 1 after 5 used -- no falls... I think Duncan's is the best bet.

I love the gyroscope and it's educational value for my children. I only wish it was more durable. The outer ring isn't soldered together and care must be taken not to spin the gyroscope too hard or it will come apart.

I grew up with this toy. I'm now an engineer. The gyroscope (along with other toys) taught me to look past the obvious to get amazing results!
