Tip-It

Created in 1965, Tip-It was the first in a long line of Ideal games which had to do with keeping something balanced to prevent it from toppling and, as was so often the case, only the original such game became the enduring classic which stayed in production. The object here is to use a special plastic fork to scoop up different color discs off three posts attached to a tripod balancing on a perch, post and base assembly below it, taking care not to cause a baldheaded acrobat balancing on a higher post and perch weaving freely with the tripod and discs, to fall off.

  1. A vivid memory for me, I recall unwrapping this at Christmas back in the mid 60s and I loved it. It was one of the few games that could even be played alone.
    Over the years it went to pieces, but every so often I find a part of the game. Just recently I ran across the little plastic fork which I believe is the last tidbit from the original game that I have.
    Great memory
