ToyNews can reveal that Spirograph will be launching in the UK after all - in full 3D.

Goldfish & Bison will launch fresh products this summer, starting from an entry-level £2.99 pack right up to a £24.99 studio set.

The news comes just weeks after we reported that the classic pen and paper art and craft toy Spirograph had returned to retail in the US.

Kids can even use a special pen to draw in two colours at once, before wearing 3D glasses to view their drawing in a whole new way.

The £2.99 Blister Pack includes three Spirograph wheels, plus a rainbow pencil and holder.

Then there's the Artist Set for £4.99 which comes with a bigger Spirograph, six wheels, stickers and a design idea book.

The £9.99 Pro-Art set comes with more pencils and graphs, while the 3d Artist Set (£14.99) and Studio Set (£24.99) complete the line-up. 

Both of the higher-priced products include 3D glasses and a blue and red pen, as well as fluorescent markers.

Spirograph is set to hit UK shelves in the summer. It will be supported by TV ads and an app.

"We wanted to make it a toy with the look and feel of the traditional Spirograph, but add even more fun into it," Goldfish & Bison brand manager Alex Kovacevic told ToyNews.

The original Spirograph was a top-selling toy in the '60s.
