    It all goes back to childhood memories. Grown men buying sailboats, old-timer cars, and old biplanes. Guided and inspired by adventure books they read when they were boys. My preferred literature was definitely exploration, with pirates a close second. Well-read was a book about an uncle with many cousins. He owned several DC-3s and traveled through Africa taking his kin for rides. Rich adventure… and of course I saw myself as the pilot. My first actual flight was as a passenger in a DC-3, fourth class. I believe it was the late 1950s. My Dad dropped me off at the Dakota's foldout stairs, made sure it took off, and then boarded a Constellation to New York. I overlooked the wing of the DC-3 during flight and remember praying the rivets would hold till London.

    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.
