Klaus Mader creating his unique wooden Mader spinning tops, available in Australia from Oskar's Wooden Ark

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader, a very skilled carpenter with a love for handcrafted wooden toys. He has a small but mighty workshop in the foothills of the Austrian Alps where he creates traditional spinning tops, skipping ropes, kaleidoscopes and yo-yos - all by hand.

Each Mader spinning top is carved from a single piece of sustainably-sourced European wood and undergoes up to 20 different processes, including wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing.

Collectable Mader spinning tops available in many different colour combinations, shapes and sizes from Oskar's Wooden Ark in Australia

Original Mader Spinning Tops are easily recognisable, thanks to the burned stripe around their equator, beautiful rainbow colours and unparalleled attention to detail. Pick one up and give it a twirl, then watch mesmerised as it spins and falls.

Mader Spinning Tops, Yoyo's, Kaleidoscopes, Skipping Ropes, Music Boxes, Hollow Eggs and other traditional wooden toys are available in many different colour combinations, shapes and sizes. Great fun to play with and simply beautiful to look at, they are a delight for the whole family!
