We recommend using a wooden plate when spinning your favorite tops. The Mader Wooden Plate from Oskar’s Wooden Ark is a larger plate for spinning tops and a must have for every true spinning top lover. The wooden plate (sold without tops) contains the top and encourages it to keep spinning. No more chasing tops across the room (unless you want to!) or having them fall off your table to the floor. Mader Wooden Ash Plate for Spinning Tops comes without spinning tops.

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader, a very skilled carpenter with a love for handcrafted wooden toys. He has a small but mighty workshop found in the foothills of the Austrian Alps which hand makes not only traditional spinning tops but also skipping ropes, kaleidoscopes and yo-yos. Each spinning top is painstakingly made by hand, often by Klaus himself, out of locally sourced wood with some tops requiring up to 20 different stages such as wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail in every creation.
His toys are easily recognised as they all have a burned in stripe in the middle, beautifully chosen colours and unparalleled attention to detail. You can’t help but pick one up and give it a twirl then watch mesmerised as it spins and falls.
