striped upside down wooden top
A spinning top with a secret trick: start the top spinning fast on the rounded side, then watch as it flips itself over and continues to spin only on its stem! The concept of this top was originally patented in 1891, but continues to delight at every turn!
When was the last time you played with tops? Some of the best tops we have found come from a small family in Austria. All their tops are painstakingly made by hand out of locally sourced wood. One top can take up to 20 separate stages to complete! Beautiful colours, unparalleled attention to detail and lovely shapes make these tops the best out there. Watching these tops spin is mesmerizing, and adults and kids alike are entranced when testing these tops out at the shop.
