Spinning Tops

Vintage Spinning Tops

Spinning tops have been around so long that no one knows who spun the first one. It is likely that the first spinning top was a nut or acorn spun by a curious child. It seems likely that natural curiosity began the craft of top spinning in various places around the world. The spinning top was also one of the earliest toy patents granted by the United States Patent Office. There are many kinds of spinning tops. Most people in the United States are familiar with the large plunger top. The mechanism inside the top causes it to spin when the plunger is pumped up and down. The finger top (usually very inexpensive) begins spinning by twirling it between the thumb and fingers. Flip tops are designed to flip over when they are spun! The whipping top was more popular in Europe. It is spun by hitting it with a lash or whip. Mechanical springs are used in some tops to wind up the top and let it go spinning when the spring is released. The peg top is spun by winding a string or cord around the top and throwing the top to unwind the string and make the top spin.
