Wooden Spinning top is one of the oldest toy. The top spins rapidly with the aid of a string rope coiled around its axis which when pulled quickly, sets it in motion.The colors, shapes, and designs blend together as the top spins. Easy to store and carry with each top measuring 3"x1.8"x1.8". This set of 2 tops comes with strings/cords. The nail bottom is not very pointed.Interesting to watch for the little ones and fascinating for the older ones. No batteries or electronic parts, just old-fashioned know-how and intelligent design.
