"My Grandson's Top has arrived (from the Spinning Top Museum.)   He was just a year old.   I wanted to give him " a real toy"  
         The young people who work in the toy stores didn't know what a top was when I was out shopping for it.  
         We are so pleased with it.    I'm sure we will all have pleasure seeing him play with the top.  
         Wishing   you a Merry Christmas.    Thanks again!"       S.,  Reading PA.

    Item descriptions     .  

    1. Choral pump top, classic, changing cords The choral top plastic base is not a suction cup, just a base.  The base is part of the design and functioning.  The top moves around a bit while pumping, but not freely all over the floor. The base can be lightly touched with one hand, while pumping the top with the other, and it is easier to get it going full speed, rather than the top's tip slipping away while pumping.   The base also is nice when not using the top, as the top can be put on a shelf or table to display beautifully and does not roll away. Plastic handle, tradtional shape.Metal rod. Approx. 9" tall, about 10" wide.
