Here are the steps to construction of the bobble tumbling toy shown in a previous video. Tumbling toys have been around for quite a while, commercial ones are nice but are limited in as an instructional piece due to the ball being encased inside a wooden capsule and little to due in the way of experimentation. This simple version can be produced using some recycled materials found around the home. The clear plastic of the bottle allows for visibility of the movement inside, plus the the simple design allows for some changes to the materials used inside.
