Walking The Tightrope
Discover how acrobats manage to stay balanced while walking on a tightrope or doing handstands with the Walking the Tightrope kit! Did you know that the center of mass is an imaginary point on a body where all of its mass is considered to be concentrated? To stay balanced, an acrobat needs to position his/her center of mass over the base of his/her body. 25 pieces total. Assembled sizes: Acrobat – 3.5″ x 2.75″ x .33,” Parrot – 6″ x 3″ x 2″, Penguin – 4.75″ x 4.75″ x 2.3,” Stand – 4.5″ x 4.25″ x 4″ (now includes The Teetering Penguin!).
