The Animal Carousel Carnival Top is a traditionalist’s singing top. It’s decorated with merry-go-round animals, and is the only Bolz top with a wooden handle.
Lorenz Bolz Tops invented the spiral grooved pump mechanism which makes their tops work. The singing comes compliments of the holes in the tops side. The little stand on the bottom also means that these tops will spin for literally minutes before friction takes its toll.
