Classic Spirograph Deluxe Design Set (Every Parents Retro Dream)

By Kelsey

0 from 0 review(s)

I had a small Spirograph set when I was a little girl and I absolute loved playing with it to create custom designs. I was so excited to see the Spirograph Deluxe Design Set on Amazon.com’s Best Toys of the Month list and wanted to see what improvements were in store for me.


Age Range: 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 year olds

The box and packaging is actually part of the carrying case with this Deluxe Spirograph Set. All of the wheels and plates are beautifully organized together by size. The set also comes with 3 different color pens, putty to keep the plates in place, a design guide and several sheets of Spirograph paper. Spirograph Deluxe Design Set

The Playtime Experience

Playing with this Spirograph set brought back a lot of memories for me. I loved playing with the different size wheels (19 total) and watching the beautiful designs come out on paper. The design guide was great as well because it showed various intricate designs and showed you how to recreate them for a beautiful affect. Deluxe Design Set Review

Things I Liked

I love that the packaging is the carry case. My set as a child only came with a could of the wheels and no carry case so this Spirograph set certainly earns its “Deluxe” title.

Things I Didn't Like

The design guide recommends that you use the enclosed putty to hold the plates in place. However, I didn’t find that it helped and still needed to hold the plate in place myself to avoid mistakes. I would have settled for just holding the plate to start with rather than learning the hard way.

Final Note

I loved the opportunity to play with the Spirograph Deluxe Design Set. The possible patterns are endless and there are so many of the wheels to try the endless combinations with. I really liked that the design guide offered some help in making more intricate designs. I also love that this set can continue to be relevant by buying additional colored gel pens and paper for minimal investment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3ga7yP8428 (You may also like: 33 Best Classic Toys of All-Time)
