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.

    Good product

    Great product

    Bedside Tables Drawers Storage Cabinet Shelf Side End Table Oak x 2

    Set aside half a day to put these together! lots of assembling. I am happy with the product they look nice. they have almost a waxy finish from the laminate. I did damage one of the tops putting it together as there are 2 sizes of dow and i put the bigger one in accidentally and when tapping it on the dow went through the weak particle board :(

    Great response and service.

    Lovely looking item. The seller is very prompt to respond and provides great on time delivery and service. Any problems addressed immediately.

    Great product and excellent delivery service from Nestz

    Nice but...

    The base was received a week before the top which was painful. Then the top arrived with scratches on one edge due to I assume poor packaging inside the box. It's a great solid desk and I do like it, and the scratches are superficial so I'm not overly worried but the overall experience was a little shoddy.
