Product Details

Our Whirli-Gear is a form of a Whirligig, also known as button spinners, buzzers, buzzsaws, and a host of other names. They have been known throughout the centuries.  Native American cultures had their own version of this toy in 500 BC.  They were common in 17th century Europe.  Many children of the Great Depression from the southern Appalachians and Ozarks remember a button or token and a string as the primary spinning toy of their youth.
