Then maybe you’re ready for Wild Gears. (Shop Wild Gears at this link.)
Wild Gears are more expensive than Spirograph because they are not mass produced. They’re designed by Aaron Bleackley who laser cuts them on demand out of acrylic sheets.
Wild Gears give you lots more options. Each gear also has a ring with the same number of teeth. This gives you way more combinations, sizes and versatility.
Laser cutting is very precise, which makes for crisp smoothness to the gear teeth. The holes align precisely with the teeth, and the pieces stay flat – no warping as with the newer Spirograph pieces.

Since 2013, Aaron Bleackley has taken the product through several design cycles and Kickstarter campaigns. There are large sets – the Enormous Gear Set has gears and rings as big as 12 inches – and smaller sets – like the Compact Gear Set (see my Unboxing video) which you can absolutely use with each other.
Aaron will ship Wild Gears just about anywhere.
