Top and Launcher

Launchable top ca. 1830.
Museum of New York City
From Antiques of American Childhood
By Katharine Morrison McClinton

Modern children call our TOP & LAUNCHER a "19th Century Bey Blade" and are always amazed when our version soundly beats theirs with lots of spin left! This is one of our most popular items so…order early!

Our Partner Cyril Hobbins in England writes...
Did you know that you can use a LAUNCHER TOP to explore the wonderful world of colour? Just cut a set of disks from white card then make a hole in the centre of each to fit over the peg of the top. Now draw a faint pencil line to divide each disk in half; then colour each half with a different PRIMARY Colour. Spin each one in turn and witness the magic of changing colours.

Next, use the pencil to divide one disk into 7 equal segments then colour each segment with the 7 colours of the RAINBOW. They are VIOLET, INDIGO, BLUE, GREEN,YELLOW, ORANGE and RED; use the funny word VIBGYOR to help you to remember them; it is made up from the initial letters of each colour.

Can you guess what clour this disk will be whilst it is spinning?

The result will amaze you....HAVE FUN experimenting with disks with spiral patterns and others with edge marks; view these spinning under a flourescent light.
