The acrobat was an easy toy to build. All of the toys that have a human figure (like the 030 Man, or 031 Rope Walker) have the same basic construction. In this case, the only puzzle was figuring out what to use for weights. The wooden discs seemed right, although I'm not sure if there should be a fiberboard washer between each set as a spacer (I decided against it).
To me, the figure looked more like a weight lifter than an acrobat. I guess he's holding some type of balancing beam -- a weight lifter would throw his back out holding a barbell like that!
