The cyclex is a drawing tool with a set of 5 rotating circles in a frame. Each circle has many shapes inside to trace, rotate, trace again, and so on until a design has been completed all the way around the circle. Another shape may be chosen to layer on top of the previous design, and then another. In short, this tool is just a simpler way to get the results of a normal spirograph (although finished designs will be largely circular) and can be used by younger children. Includes cyclex tool, design guide, 20 sheets of paper, and 6 markers.
The amazing Spirograph® Cyclex™ drawing tool makes it simple for kids of all ages to create intricate and beautiful spiral art designs and patterns. The unique rotating stencil wheels of the Cyclex™ automatically advance as you trace making it easy and fun to create incredible detailed designs. The design wheels are fully encased inside the Cyclex™, which prevents accidental slipping of the gears, making it perfect for younger artists. Works with the included design markers as well as will your own pens, markers and crayons.
As a child of the 80's, I definitely remember the Spirograph. My sisters and I were so intrigued with the cool designs that we could make, just with the little toothed templates and a pen! I didn't know, however, that the Spirograph was originally developed as a drafting tool - or that it had been around since 1965! But if you have fond memories of the originals, you'll be pleased to know that they are back again for a whole new generation to enjoy. Both sets include Spirograph wheels, rings, putty (to hold the rings in place), pens, a guide book, paper and a storage case. Deluxe Kit includes more of everything, including a carry-along storage case with a built-in work surface. - Jess
