Mini Spirograph

I bought myself a new toy - a mini Spirograph set.  I've already made several greeting cards with it.  So incredibly fun!

I'm also super lucky that my .38 mm pens from Muji work in the holes.  Rainbow Spirograph!  So much better than just red and blue.

I absolutely LOVED my Spirograph as a kid! I've been seeing them pop up recently and now I'll probably have to buy my daughter one. Oh, who am I kidding... it'll be for me!

I bought myself one of these a few years back with my birthday gift card from my work at the time. They really are fantastic.

Oh my gosh - SPIROGRAPH!!!! I loved that toy! And they had a version for younger kids with bigger pieces called Spirotot. Sing it with me:
Put the ring in the square
And the pen in the dot....
Go round, round, round
With Spirotot!!!!

I didn't think they still made those things. My sister had one back in the 70's.

Man, my sister and I would spend hours playing with my mom's old spirograph. She must still have it somewhere....-rummages around in desperate want of spirographness-
