What is the Giant Springy?
The Giant Springy is a pre-compressed helical (coil) spring that performs a variety of tricks – most famously travelling down a flight of stairs, end over end, as it stretches and re-forms itself with the aid of both gravity and its own momentum. It can also appear to levitate for a period of time after it has been dropped, and can be manipulated to make spooky sound effects. The Giant Springy can blast down the stairs, jump from your hands, spring from table tops, and so much more.

What can I learn with this kit?
Learn about forces and energy by discovering how gravity and momentum affect how the Giant Springy moves – part of the National Curriculum for Science in Key Stages 1 and 2.


Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this for Christmas stocking filler for my 10 year old son, I am sure he will be delighted with it as has been asking for one for some time. Great price as I’ve seen them elsewhere for £10-£12 so pleased with the price at maplin. Sure my son will have hours of fun with it.
