    General Information

    Humming buzzer

    It is the classic in the children's room, its popularity is unbroken - at least since 1913, when the drill rod for its drive was patented and has allowed the spinning top to be continuously revved up ever since. Once the spinning top has been set in rotation by pumping the drill rod, it tries to maintain its angular momentum against all friction in freewheeling. The faster it spins, the louder the humming sound the spinning top makes thanks to the blowing edge of the body. This colorful humming top painted with a farm motif will also fascinate your little one: smaller children in particular will tirelessly try to get the top to hum. What luck, because this requires coordinated motor skills and a sense of balance - both of which your child will be able to train in a playful way with the help of the humming top.

    Our tip: If you are not satisfied with the humming sound the first time you use it, please add a drop of household oil (e.g. Ballistol) to the spinning top. There is a small instructional drawing on the base of the spinning top to show you the way.

    Rich in detail and carefully crafted. Tin toys from Europe

    We do not want to tire of emphasizing how vanishingly small and soon probably completely disappeared the share of mechanical tin toys from European production is. Since the relocation of almost all tin toy production to the Far East, the remaining manufacturers in this country (as in the rest of Europe) are often left to fend for themselves. Some classics that were produced for decades have practically disappeared. The Düsseldorf-based Blechfabrik, for example, maintains production facilities not only near Nuremberg, but also in New Delhi and Shanghai, where it manufactures historical tin toys true to its motto of "preserving the historical gem". In order to fulfill this intention, the models are mainly handmade, if possible with the help of historical models and original stamping tools. What die Blechfabrik does not produce itself, it tries to preserve with the help of equally committed partners - as in the case of this toy, which is manufactured in the Czech Republic.
