I came upon this  rather well worn spinning top the other day. It’s clearly been through a few seasons and a lot of  turning. Metal spinning tops were so popular back in the Fifties..I guess they’ve been replaced with computerised versions. This one is so colourful and representative of it’s time. Remember when you could spend hours just playing endlessly with pick up sticks, yo yo’s, stilts, jacks, cat’s cradle..etc? It’s all coming back to me now… I knew it was still there somewhere! Calling all inner children….!!
