Description
In the mid-80s, 194 - 86, my sister had a very cool gyrocope toy, about the size of a yo-yo. It was like a top and you used a separate metal device to set it a-spin. If you were really good, you could get it to spin without toppling from the eraser-tip of a pencil. Does anyone know what I'm talking about???

You are talking about the TEDCO Gyroscope, made by the TEDCO company in my hometown of Hagerstown, Indiana USA. You can order a gyroscope from their web page, www.tedcotoys.com.

I had one of these I think, it was metal and you could set it spinning on a piece of string.

It reminds me of something you'd see at the Museum in Flushing Meadows/ Corona Park. You know, stuff from the 1964 World's Fair.
