Large Wooden Spinning Top
An old school toy that is also a valuable learning resource and one of our best sellers!
This large wooden spinning top is an ideal resource to challenge thinking and scaffold learning. Hand turned from sustainably sourced wood and sealed with beeswax, it is sanded smooth, no two are exactly the same. A beautiful natural and tactile piece for learning, play (and display!)
The humble spinning top dates back thousands of years, flexing in and out of trends over time. One thing that has never changed is the immense amount of learning benefits that come from using it. From trial and error and persistence to concepts relating to physics and design elements. Adults will enjoy this piece just as much as the little ones!
