This classic top works by pushing down from the top and pumping the handle. Around the outside of this top are children holding hands. There is a whirling sound and a display of spinning colors and soothing tones. This is a nostalgic toy that has been around for many years but it is a valuable addition to the childs play as it teaches balance. The unique aspect of this top is that part of the cost of the product goes to help Save the Children program. This non-profit association helps children in the United States and around the world. While your child is having fun, learning about balance and enjoying their top, they are also helping other children as well. This also develops eye-hand coordination and understanding science can begin when watching how a top spins.
