Bald eagles soar overhead scanning the swirling white waters of the river. The fisherman is perched on a boulder watching his line, contemplating lures for trout, steelhead, salmon. A sense of quiet permeates the entire place, a wildlife refuge teeming with jackrabbits, deer, bobcats and mountain lions.

Toys inspired by and demonstrating aspects of science were popular in Victorian times. People loved toys that did the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity: They all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Balance toys were originally called skyhooks, effortless counter-weighted toys that could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table and set in motion to everybody's delight and amazement.
