This top takes some practice and concentration to get going! Use 2 hands to roll the pencil and start it spinning. Drop it (spinning) at an angle onto paper and see what spiraling shape it creates.
A wobbly spin creates a frizzy line. A larger angle creates larger loops. A one-stop education in physics, and the art of trial, error, and persistence!
