Christmas is upon us so what do you buy her or him that has everything? What to give the kids to get them past Boxing Day with a toy that hasn't got them bored 30 minutes after unwrapping it?
The answer is a toy gyroscope made by Tiger Co. of Nagoya. These toy gyroscopes seem to be the hot item from Japan for Christmas 2011. Sleek, fun, educational and precision engineered by a company that has been in business for the last 90 years.
Nagoya is Japan's engineering center and the home of such companies as NGK spark plugs, Toyota cars, of course, and Mitsubishi aircraft.
