This is 3 handmade DANCING BALLERINA FOLK DOLL TOY SPINNING TOPS. Just like everything I make, each is a one-of-a-kind spinning top. Each doll was hand turned on a wood lathe without the use of any patterns or duplicating tools. I also did all of the hand painting and the beading of her arms. When she spins, her arms lift up in the air. Get good enough and you can even spin her on her head! THESE ARE NOT STOCK PHOTOS. YOU ARE BUYING THESE EXACT THREE BALLERINA DOLL TOPS.

SHIPS SAME OR NEXT DAY VIA FIRST CLASS USPS MAIL. VERY FAST!

My dolls measure approximately 3 inches tall and 1.8 inches in diameter (72 by 45 mm). She is made with maple and cocobolo (her handle) woods. She is a great spinner.

Her dress features original hand painted designs in acrylic paints, and her arms are beaded with 4mm glass beads. She's certainly a one-of-a-kind!

MINT CONDITION **** HAND MADE **** HAND PAINTED
A ONE-OF-A-KIND DESIGNED AND CREATED BY JOSHUA ANDRA
BRAND NEW TOP: CREATED IN MAY 2012

She ships WORLDWIDE AND QUICKLY in a small but sturdy box with bubble wrap packaging. She ships first class via USPS mail.

My ballerina doll tops are a little harder to spin than traditional disc shaped tops, and because of her arms, she also does not spin as long or sometimes as perfectly steady as a traditional top. To spin her best: Start with a clean, flat surface. Stand her up straight with your index finger and thumb, apply a little pressure downward, and then spin firmly. You can see her spinning in the final picture above (flash was not used).

Tops are finished with lacquer and wax. Tops will blister under water. Keep tops dry.
Tops are not recommended for children under 5 years old -- or for any child with tendencies to mouth or swallow small objects.

Any questions? Ask away, and they shall be answered in a timely fashion.
