I recently commandeered a kinder egg toy from my colleague Ellen, in the form of a mini-spirograph!
It has subsequently stolen enough minutes of my working day to justify a blog post.
After a bit of research into this retro megadoodle phenomenon, I found its evolution to be a fantastic representation of our evolving use of spare time, in the wake of the technological revolution.
Youtube provides an interesting distinction between the retro adverts, showing spirograph as fun for all the family, (is this what the world did before the internet?) to contemporary videos of digitalised spirographs, and spirograph inspired, laser omitting contraptions that further enhance the visual tantalisation!
I recommend having a look If you’re overdue a healthy dose of nostalgia.
