Simple little wooden tops. Who would have thought they could be so much fun and so affordable too. These folk art wooden tops sit in a wooden tray on our coffee table. Talk about being a magnet, they draw everyone in and everyone has to start spinning them. It was not only the best investment money-wise, but also a terrific decorative accessory that I don't have to worry about breaking or being destroyed.
You can make these yourself (with marbles, wooden wheels and small dowels) or look for them on places like Etsy.
