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 found in the foothills of the Austrian Alps which hand makes not only traditional spinning tops but also skipping ropes, kaleidoscopes and yo-yos. Each spinning top is painstakingly made by hand, often by Klaus himself, out of locally sourced wood with some tops requiring up to 20 different stages such as wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail in every creation.

His toys are easily recognised as they all have a burned in stripe in the middle, beautifully chosen colours and unparalleled attention to detail. You can’t help but pick one up and give it a twirl then watch mesmerised as it spins and falls.

Beautiful spinning tops

I bought these in the five colours - absolutely beautiful spinning tops, the kids and I relax after dinner time spinning the MADER tops, such a fun way to unwind. Every time we have visitors they love spinning the MADER tops

Beautiful spinning top

We just love Mader spinning tops as they are so beautifully made. The whole family enjoys playing with them and the Arabesk is a welcome addition to our collection. It's an easy one to use and looks so pretty spinning. Hoping for more spinning tops in the next restock to add to the Christmas stockings.

Lovely craftmanship

I have to be honest, I thought this would be bigger as I hadn't properly read the size info. It is so well made though, easy to use and bub loves it. I've put it aside with a few other things for his first birthday

Lovely item

Lovely item, quality made. I purchased as an add-on to my order with free shipping (assuming it would be posted together with my main order). Instead, this small spinner was packed in a large cardboard box filled with shredded cardboard, which was a massive waste :(

These are simply beautiful

Lightweight and easy to use

I was surprised how lightweight and easy to use these spinning tops are. Once going they spin for ages! So many beautiful colours and designs it's hard to choose only one.
