Nice! I too love wooden toys and I certainly agree with the comment of them being better than playing at a computer.

IMO – The best toys are made by hand, made with wood and require no batteries.

A top!! oh, wow, I LOVED playing with tops as a kid.
Oh, who am I kidding…I still spin coins on tables. I’d play with this for a while even now.
Can we see a pic of the bottom side of the top? Did you put something on the tip of the wood to help keep the point sharp?

Nice job. I made one when the g-kids were here last fall. It worked geat, but g-ma said no srting, might choke. I think 4 & 6 is old enough to use a top!

Wonderful little toy, will have to see if I can spend a little time with this one. I had to promise a great granddaughter a special small bowl after I gave her grandmother, my daughter a couple of special bowlsfor her birthday, maybe I can sneak this in with the bowl and give my grandson something to do, since I do not think she is old enough to wind it herself yet.Topomax, if I remember correctly, at six I was fishing with my dad using a long bamboo pole with chalk linefor string, sharp hooks and plenty of angleworms that I got to dig myself.

Great job! I’ve been looking for toy ideas to make my little one. I think I’ll try your top.
