The Quark Spinning Top. This Ferret has a fascination with spinning tops, which clearly comes from a deranged childhood. The Quark is billed as ‘the highest performance classic spinning top in the world.’ Hey and it even comes with its own uber cool balancing laser. We don’t want to argue, we just want to play, Play! PLAY! Priced from $49.95 up to $2495.00 for the 14K gold version. Yowsers!

 Made of precision machined parts, the meticulously engineered Quark top will spin longer than any other top. With conventional tops typically spinning for about 60 seconds, the Quark top can spin for more than a quarter hour! The impressive performance is the result of a carefully engineered combination of weight distribution, balancing technology, tip topology, material selection, handle optimization, and exacting proportions.


  • Or you can salvage the idler pulley flywheel (which has a pointy short end and a pointy long end) from a VCR, spin it up with the head motor, and bask in the… bask? OK, I’m not sure that much basking will be going on, but it’s fun, nonetheless.

  • Ooh ooh, sounds fascinating. Got a URL? :-)

  • Nope. I played with these things when “Earl” was the name of the geeky kid in school, Duran Duran was popular, and VCRs were expensive.

  • Tshaw! :-)
