Original Spirograph Review

Last week we were sent the Original Spirograph Deluxe from Flair to review.  I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive this, it brought back so many happy memories as I loved playing with mine when I was a girl.  It was such great fun to sit and create all those wonderful patterns and I will never forget the tiny little pins that I used to keep the wheels in place.

Spirograph comes complete with:
  • 19 Spirograph precision wheels
  • 2 Spirograph precision rings
  • 1 Spirograph precision rack
  • Reusable Spiro putty
  • 3 design pens
  • Guide book
  • Storage Case
Gee could not wait to get started with the Spirograph.  I was surprised to see the pins had been replaced with putty to hold the ring in place, how times have changed.  It took a bit of practice for Gee to make sure the inner ring was pressed firmly to the outside ring whilst she was drawing but once she got the hang of it she loved recreating the patterns in the useful guide that is supplied with the Spirograph.

Spirograph is aimed at children 8 years and above and I think this is probably appropriate as it can be a bit fiddly.  It can be bought for around £24.99 which is pretty good value for something that will last and can be used over and over again.  There is even a Spirograph Young Designer of the Year 2016 competition if you would like to enter.  You can find out more details on how to enter here.

I'm sure we will have lots more fun with Spirograph especially now that Gee is mastering the wheels, such a fabulous toy which can provide hours of entertainment.

We were sent this Spirograph free of charge for the purpose of this review but the opinion is our own.


  1. Very efficiently written information. It will be priceless to anybody who uses it, together with myself. Sustain the good work for positive.

  2. Hmm either a new phone case or new mugs so I don't have to listen to my kids argue.
