Original Tedco Gyroscope Twin Pack


The true gyroscope master can balance two gyroscopes together! This gyroscope twin pack contains everything needed to replicate the double-spinning gyroscope trick and is packed in retro folding carton package with original Tedco gyroscope graphics.

Wind the string, give it a pull, let your gravity-defying gyroscope go! Get set for an audience – the tricks quickly begin!

When the gyroscope’s wheel is spun you can expect amazed onlookers. It’s ability to balance while spinning on a piece of string or hover sideways is counter-intuitive, and that’s what makes it so much fun!

Made In USA.

Busy hands build strong minds! And there is no toy better than the classic gyroscope to engage both the hands and the minds of youngsters. Children are curious by nature and one of the best ways for them to learn is by asking "how does it work?" The gyroscope sets out to help kids investigate the amazing scientific principle of gyroscopic force and to reinforce learning through hands-on exploration. By building problem-solving skills children develop a thirst for additional learning and educational experiences.

  • Science behind Gyroscope:

    A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum. Mechanically, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disc in which the axle is free to assume any orientation. Although this orientation does not remain fixed, it changes in response to an external torque much less and in a different direction than it would with the large angular momentum associated with the disc's high rate of spin and moment of inertia. The device's orientation remains nearly fixed, regardless of the mounting platform's motion, because mounting the device in a gimbal minimizes external torque.

    Applications of gyroscopes include inertial navigation systems where magnetic compasses would not work (as in the Hubble telescope) or would not be precise enough (as in ICBMs), or for the stabilization of flying vehicles like radio-controlled helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles. Due to their precision, gyroscopes are also used in gyrotheodolites to maintain direction in tunnel mining.

    Design Principle:

    For over 70 years, Tedco Toys Company of Indianapolis, Indiana, USA has produced and sold gyroscopes all over the world. Please note that this gyroscope is handmade, hand inspected and imported from USA to ensure optimum performance & usage. The design of this gyroscope has an INTENTIONAL break on the outer ring, which will enable the flexibility of the frame and this DESIGN has not changed since its production in 1917. Adjustments are necessary over time to keep the Gyroscope in perfect working order.


    Please refer to the detailed write-up of the gyroscope design principle in the package.
