Do you remember the old fashioned spinning tops from your youth?
I recall having one that worked okay, but it wasn’t easy to get it to spin for any length of time.
Aerobie’s MegaTop is poised to blow those older tops out of the water.
There are actually 2 sides to this top that allow the user to either go for distance or duration. You also get a spin-booster to keep things going and achieve high rotations per minute. And, finally, there is a catching plate that will allow you to do tricks.
about the Aerobie® Megatop™ Spinning Top
Now, the one thing we are not blest with in our house is a large firm surface for play. So, the distance aspect hasn’t been explored so far. But, we have tried the longer duration of spinning. And, the boys were impressed. The catching plate isn’t something they’ve quite figured out. However, I think that might be the way they can extend the play-ability of the Megatop with our more limited surface area.
Given our limited surface area, I thought we’d try it in the coat room/hallway at our church. I tried to grab photos, but each time was thwarted by a certain curious toddler who couldn’t wait to grab the top. Who knows, maybe he’ll get it all figured out and teach his big brothers?
The Aerobie® Megatop™ Spinning Top retails for $9.99 and is available through Amazon.com and other retailers.
