Little Things Please Little Minds?

This little top spun out of one of our Christmas crackers! We love it! It is such a simple thing but beautifully balanced and it really spins well on the granite in the kitchen. Husband and I have competitions as to who can spin it the longest. Sad to say Husband holds the record - it keeps us amused while waiting for the kettle to boil!

That was a good thing to get out of a cracker. It is a smashing little top & reminds me of all the fun we had when we were kids in the days before sophisticated screen objects, that children MUST have.

Co-ordination , concentration , friendly competitiveness ....
Too many good things to list . Brown will shortly be providing everyone with one . And then Dyson will find a way to power your kettle with one .

We could do with one of those for husband to spin instead of microwave dish lids!
