I loved my friend Robin's Spirograph...that must have been 1967! I think I whined at home until I got it as a 'gift' to shut me up. I played with it until the pens ran out of ink!

Cheers!

I wonder if I would be able to use one of those effectively now. I had this tendency to shift the little pins holding the paper down, and/or to tear the paper with the pens. May you have great joy in them! ;-)

I had a Spirograph set as a kid; I have no idea what happened to it. I suspect mom may have noticed I hadn't used it in a while and quietly donated it somewhere....

Oh God, I was the biggest Spirograph™ geek as a kid. I had a regular and a Super Spirograph. I hated the regular one because by the point it was made, they decided push-pins were too dangerous for little kids to have, so they replaced them with these big, plastic brackets that left big holes in the paper, and made the paper tear when the pen ran over it, thus ruining your beautiful artwork.

I also had a catalogue of German toy products including the whole Spirograph line, which included something called “Spiro-Knirps.”
