Balance Toys

Gadgets inspired by science were popular in the 19th century. The Victorians loved demonstrations of the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity etc, all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast due to the industrial revolution. Balance toys became popular in such a time; people wanted their toys to move, to appear different and to be fascinating to the eye.
