Top Spinning Day

Celebrated every year on the second Wednesday of October

International Top Spinning Day was created in 2003 by the Spinning Top and Yo-Yo Museum in Burlington.

The top spinner or spinning top has been around for centuries, no for millennia….at least!
It’s a cute simple toy that trains our eye-hand coordination and teaches us basic physics by using it’s rotational inertia to defy gravity as long as it spins hard enough.
