Comes with a starting string, a black pedestal and instructions.
Split in the frame by design, your gyroscope is not broken. This allows for the final hand assembly and balancing adjustment, 2 ends at the split should butt together.
Your gyroscope is not made to endure falls, such as off table tops, however if it does the split in the frame will allow you to replace the wheel and realign the 2 ends.
Proudly made in the USA.
