Put your own full-color graphic on custom spin toys!  Use these great promotional tools for your school, business, or organization, or just put your artwork on a cute little toy.

You simply supply the graphic (sized to fit on the 3" diameter disc face) and we do the rest. These are meant for promotional purposes, but we can put any image on them you like, within reason (no racy stuff, please), provided that you own the copyright to the image.

This is a small 3" diameter 1/8" thick wooden circle whirling spin toy. This is similar to the 'button toys' you might have played with as a child. The two small spools (see image) serve as "handles" to help protect little fingers against the pull of the string.

We will include an extra string with each toy in case the first one breaks.

Pointers:

You can add images, text, etc, as long as it will fit on the 3" diameter faces, and the colors are such that it will print correctly (you can test your image by printing on a tan paper -- if it comes out okay it should look fine on the blocks).

Keep in mind that some of the fine details and differences in color might not come out as well transferred onto the wood, so you'll want to stick to simple images with sharp edges and high contrast. Darker colors work best.

Try to keep fonts at least 10pt, as smaller fonts will be hard for people to read. Using Bold text is usually best, as the toner will transfer more evenly and clearly.

How to Use the Toy:

The circle has two holes drilled at the center and a loop of string threaded through it. To play with the toy, grab the two spools and pull your hands apart so that one spool rests behind the joint of each of your middle fingers. Position the snowflake so that it's centered slack on the string, then start spining the toy away from you until the string on either side has several twists in it.

Once the string is twisted, you simply pull your hands apart with a little force, this will force the snowflake to start spinning, and when the string has unwound, the snowflake will continue to spin, winding the string the other direction. This creates a yo-yo effect of sorts and the toy will keep spinning as you move your hands apart (when the string is twisted) and back together as it starts to untwist).

Safety Information:

The spools could cause a choking hazard, so this toy is NOT for children under 3. The toy can move pretty fast once you get it going, so adult supervision is recommended.
