Mader Half Hollow Wooden Egg
The Mader Half Hollow Wooden Egg is craftmanship at its best - something very special to be appreciated. Only Klaus Mader himself is able to create the half hollow wooden eggs. The egg screws in half to reveal one side of the egg is hollow and can accommodate small toys and trinkets - a perfect alternative to chocolate eggs at Easter time, and something which can be used time and time again, becoming a meaningful family tradition to be passed on through the years.

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.
