THE SPINNING TOP

WHAT IS THE SPINNING TOP?

A spinning top is a cylindrical, frustoconical or round toy at the top and conical at the bottom, traditionally made of pear-shaped wood, armed with a cuff, which is danced giving it a legend. Each of the blows given to a spinning top placed on the ground, throwing another spinner to the side are the jets.
