Mader Kreiselmanufaktur

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur creates the most beautiful handcrafted spinning tops and classic toys. Each spinning top is hand turned from one piece of sustainably sourced native European hardwood, and hand-painted in natural color stain in Austria. All are beautifully and meticulously designed with a variety of difficulty levels for children as young as 3 years old to adults to enjoy, as well as a Roly Poly & kaleidoscope collection well loved by babies and young toddlers.

You can easily recognize the stunning work of Mader by their signature burned in stripe in the middle, beautifully chosen bright color combination, and unparalleled attention-to-detail. They are beautiful to look at and as decor when not being played with, and absolutely mesmerizing to spin and watch. You can’t help but pick one up and give it a twirl then watch mesmerised as it spins and falls.


Brand Story - Mader Kreiselmanufaktur

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader, a very skilled carpenter with a love for handcrafted wooden toys. He has a small but mighty workshop found in the foothills of the Austrian Alps which hand makes not only traditional spinning tops but also classic toys such as kaleidoscopes, yo-yos and skipping ropes. Each spinning top is painstakingly made by hand, often by Klaus himself, out of locally sourced wood with some tops requiring up to 20 different stages such as wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail in every creation.
