image for Spirograph All Set To Make A Comeback
Give Me Spirograph! I Pay Good Money!

Children's educational geometric pen, paper, and plastic circle with little holes and pins toy, Spirograph, appears to be enjoying something of a resurgence in popularity according to business analysts.

A sudden spike in sales of Spirograph is believed to have been driven by Eastern European migrants to the UK, who, although computer literate, missed out on the delights of Western games and toys because of the iron curtain.

"I think Spirograph is wonderful!" Boris Yablonsky, 26 and from Krakow said. "I like very much. Is good to turn circles in wheels and make nice patterns. Far better than FIFA console thing. Is more involved. You get hands dirty doing Spirograph because cheap coloured biro is leaking. Is really hands on and almost as good as fishing with big net."

UK toy manufacturers are scrutinising sales figures and contemplating the reintroduction of classic kiddy diversions such as Etch-A-Sketch, the Johnny Seven One Man Army Gun, Potters Wheel, The Mouse Trap Game, train sets and Skalextric.

The Eastern Europeans are said to be enthusiastic, with some demanding the reintroduction of Clackers, Super Balls, and Matchbox Hot Wheels racetracks.

"We never had these things back home," Boris's brother Ygor commented.
