Spinning Whip Top
Principle of toy:
The toy utilizes physical concepts such as torque, centripetal acceleration, and angular momentum to keep the spinning top staying upright.
How children will interact with the toy:
Children can start the spinning top by wrapping the rope around it and quickly pull out the rope. As the spinning top starts to lose speed, children can use the whip to whip the side of the spinning top on the side to try to keep it going.
Construction cost, durability and safety:
Construction cost of the toy should be low since the main material required is wood. This toy is incredibly durable, and it’s also relatively safe is children don’t misuse the whip.
