DID you have a Swing Wing in the 1960s? Did you dream of rotating your head so hard that you’d take off like a space boy? Did you develop chronic neck ache in later life? Is your next three times wider than your face? Then you DID have a Swing Wing.

Swing Wing was made by Transogram Games, best known, perhaps, for its Tiddley Wink games, like this Tennis Game below. It was like table-tennis, albeit with a squashed ball attached to the net by string.
