Get Spinning: These Tops ARE the Tops!

My daughter has a little top that she loves to play with. It’s one of those cheap plastic ones in a bright lime green that she received as part of a Birthday Party goodie bag. One of those pre-packaged, Oriental Trading Company type party favor bags. Parents, they tend to hate them (except for the convenience) but kids? They love them. But sadly most of the items that are included in the bags end up in broken, lost or end up in the land full. But not this top. She’s cared for it since she got it. But seeing this set of ten carved wooden tops from Japan, I think she’s really due for an upgrade.

This set included ten meticulously carved wooden tops made from a variety of woods. Each one is perfectly balanced so that they will have max-spinage. I can just see spin-offs with my daughter and her friends, hours spent with the tops seeing how long they’ll spin, and trying to decide which of the ten is the best.  To get you or your kids spinning, you can pick up this set from Curiosity Shoppe right here for $60 for the set.
