AstroLogix has been around for 18 years, in many different forms. Since the beginning our aim has been to offer a simple and fun way for children and adults to explore 3 dimensional geometry.
AstroLogix invented by Stephen Strange and his son Rob, in Bristol, UK
2000 - 2001
After much development, first prototype mold tool manufactured in Bristol
First batch of components manufactured and packed into a glow in the dark kit named “Solar System”.
Solar System is stocked by several science museums, including London Science Museum.
Hamleys place an order for several hundred kits, in time for Christmas 2001.
Natural World (at the time 30+ stores in the UK) stock the Solar System.
AstroLogix licenses to a large toy company in the USA, called Fred DaMert Toys and their parent company Toysmith.
2002 - 2007
Toysmith (manufacturing in China) produce two ranges of kits: “Glow” and “Neon”.
Licence with Toysmith expires, so Rob takes over the manufacture of AstroLogix, buying direct from the Chinese factory.
Robb continues to sell direct from the astro-logix.com website for the following years, until stock runs out.
AstroLogix had a break for a few years.
New range of kits developed: imaginatively named Small Medium. Large and Extra Large.
New website launch.
