Product Details

 

Balancing toys have been around for centuries, teaching children and adults about the laws of physics. In Victorian times, originally called skyhooks, but also known as balance toys, were first made to demonstrate the workings of counterweights and centrifugal force: simple counter-weighted toys which could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everyones delight and amazement. They soon evolved into fun and whimsical objects, never ceasing to amuse and surprise: people loved to watch toys that were doing things that seemed impossible. In an era where the laws of gravity and electricity seemed magical, balance toys became very popular. Even though we now understand the mystery of the laws of gravity, there is still something fascinating and amusing in watching a balanced object lean and sway.

    Solid bench

    Great quality bench. Really solid and feel totally supported and safe. It's quite light too so my wife finds it easy to shift around for her workouts.

    A little hard to put together .. my son who is 4 loved it once built by his dad.. little fidgety

    Great product

    More than happy with this bed! It's sturdy, and the storage is fantastic. Gas lift works perfectly and it looks really nice. May be difficult to put together for people who don't like to flat pack, but I love it and didn't struggle much. Very happy with this purchase.

    Loved it

    The only thing I was disappointed with was the opening of the top. I can't put it directly onto the wall because when I open it the whole thing comes forward so I had to put it near the curtains instead. But still really happy with it.
