Testimonial: "I have this top lying on my sideboard. It is beautiful. When the grandkids come they love it. But, I find what is most fun is that, every single adult, without fail, picks it up and takes it for a spin. Every single time. Makes me smile."Β 

This Spinning Top brings back childhood memories of the hours spent making it go. Even more popular in the 1700 and 1800's they have all but disappeared from the kids rooms of today. This version is handmade by an Artisan with a nylon tip and launcher and can spin for a full 2 minutes.Β No batteries or screens here.

Instructions: Put the top completely into the small hole in the launcher so that the top's stem, containing a tiny hole, appears in the larger launcher window. Plug the hardened tip of the launching string in the hole in the top stem and wind up the string by rotating the top. It's easier than it sounds and part of the fun. Hold the launcher firmly in one hand while pulling the string rapidly outward to spin the top. You'll get great at it and competitive with practice.

Who can spin it the longest? Who can knock out their opponent?

Helps with hand/eye coordination as well as patience and attention skills.

Great for kids birthdays, holiday gifts or gifts for no reason.

Not recommended for children under 4 years old.

I’m always a little skeptical, buying anything off of Facebook, but this little mahogany pin is really really beautiful. Used it for the first time this morning and it rolled well, cleaned easy and it’s now one of my most favorite kitchen pieces that I have. Well done!
