Spirograph Collective

Mom's been bringing over more of our childhood effects that have been stored for the better part of 15 years. In a trunk of Barbie dolls I found one toy I've been wondering about, the KPT Travel Spirograph, circa 1988, an ingenious little case made in Mexico of bright, extremely durable primary-colored plastic. All the parts and pieces are there, translucent blue plastic gearwheels and tiny pens, which is amazing considering how many trips the thing made to California and back. I remember lounging in the back of one of the station wagons twirling away with the ballpoint as the Nevada desert flew by outside. This one's fun to zoom in on.
