It’s that time of year again to shop for toys. The toy store, Spinz, is searching of toy developers to create the best spinning top toy to be able to sell this year. They would like the toy developer to design a top that spins for a long period of time and looks visually pleasing to kids. They have sent an invitation out to the public looking for help. Spinz would like you to build a prototype using brass fasteners, pipe cleaners, paperclips, index cards, toothpicks, popsicle sticks, masking tape, and glue. Use any coloring or decorating media needed to make your top visually pleasing. Once you've built your best top toy, tested it for its ability to spin a long time, and decorated it, Spinz will want to hear all about it and see it in action.
