      Keeping an eye out, one will encounter a wide range of novelty toys that seem to precariously balance on a fine point.

      Discuss and analyze how they “balance”, or do they. Where is the most weight? Kids will discover that it is below the point of support. The toy is not balancing on the point of support. It is actually hanging on it. (Please post questions.)
