Spinning Top Light / Lighting and Spinning Top

Spinning Top Light
Spinning Top Light

"The spinning top playing" is a sort of China's ancient folk game and activity, with a whip lashing a cone continuously to make it spin on smooth ground. What we have done is making a more interesting design for children based on the traditional top. This design can store electric power when whipping the top and making it spin. Connecting the whip with the top and utilizing the electric power stored by the top can generate a luminous small droplight. We believe that children will like this top more.
