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.

    Waiting to use it but seems great

    Great price in comparison to other shops, it seems great quality, will wait and see how it holds up once dog arrives. Arrived on time.

    Good chair, rubbish massager

    The chair is comfortable and adequate, quite happy with the chair for just a chair, don’t buy it as a massager, it just sends widespread vibrations.

    Pet stroller

    Roomy and lightweight ideal for my sick staffy. Front wheel can be a little awkward to manouvre but overall very happy with it
