Mader Spinning Tops
Austrian Toy $13.99
This Mader Spinning Top is a beautiful, long-spinning top with a smooth inverted surface. It is made of natural maple wood and is one of the longest-spinning tops, due to perfect balance, and small point of contact. These European toys actually come in several different spinning top designs.
Bibros Building Blocks
German Toy $34.99
These imported Bibros Building Blocks are made from four different European woods (nut tree, wild service tree, maple, oiled beech) and lend their colors and grain to this beautiful, compact wooden block set for desktop or small area. Bibros Blocks come in unusual shapes that allow the builder to create unique, attractive constructions in a small space. I love the way you can balance these blocks to achieve designs you would not normally be able to do with most block sets. 24 blocks in cloth bag.

Korxx Blocks are lightweight, safe blocks made from all-natural cork, designed by entrepreneur and mother Patricia Kuck.
