    A King and His Queen. Relegated to the realm of fairy tales now, they loom large in our history. Call them Kings or Emperors, Tsars or Sultans… they once ruled the known world. Their palaces are now tourist highlights. Painted in state, they show contemporary chic; fashion was big even then! Symbolic of power and elevated rank, both figures carry the royal staff. Balancing toys have been around for centuries, teaching children and adults about the laws of physics.

    In Victorian times, originally called skyhooks, but also known as balance toys, were first made to demonstrate the workings of counterweights and centrifugal force: simple counter-weighted toys which could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everyone's delight and amazement. They soon evolved into fun and whimsical objects, never ceasing to amuse and surprise: people loved to watch toys that were doing things that seemed impossible. In an era where the laws of gravity and electricity seemed magical, balance toys became very popular. Even though we now understand the mystery of the laws of gravity, there is still something fascinating and amusing in watching a balanced object lean and sway.
