The spinning top was a well-known in Greece game that needed a specific technique to play. The tops were either bought or made with wood or even with candle, turning them around a thin wooden shaft. They then decorated them with various colors and designs. The spinner was spinning, pulling with grate force and technic, the string carefully wrapped from the bottom to the top, across the towel. The toy was played as follows: The children put their spinners in a circle. Another child turned his own, aiming to get as many spinners out of the circle.The winner was the one who scooped up most of the spinning.
