I think I'd like to see spin tops become the next big toy craze.  Forget Kendama and yoyos, I want to see every kid with a top.  (preferably a MicroTop, but that's just me being selfish  ;D )

I also wish for a top craze (although I think 2015 is more likely). 
I wish for a great contest in Prague with many players. If I decide to compete (unlikely) I wish to win   ;D

PS: I would not mind joining Jim and Ludo on a visit to Lourens. I wish you make it coincide with worlds  ;)

I wish for more non-suck entry-level tops to be available in the US.

You know you could fulfill your own wish right?  Neff's modded tops are non-sucky entry level tops!  That's the tag line I'd go with  :D :D

Yeah I know! I've been on Ta0 to make a "like" button for a while now.  ;) ;)

This reminds me that our new vacuum cleaner has a trouble-shooting booklet with it.
One page is titled: "What to do if your vacuum does not suck" ;D

My wishes for 2014 are:

to have fun at contests
maybe some wins at contests :)
to teach more people how to throw tops
and to learn more tricks

I also agree.  I only own entry level tops, and my Neff is my favorite.  To the New York Toy Fair with you!

To sell the hundreds of tops I have left over from the 1100 I made in 2011!
Then I would have the money to shop for new tops for my personal collection.

I am guessing a table at a crafts fair or another place with high traffic would be the easier way of selling the tops.  Silvertop (aka The Toycrafter) may have more advice.

I also wish many kids to start throwing tops (especially in Czech republic) and many contests across the world.

My first wish would be to meet some fellow top throwers at an event of some kind, second to get down regenerations!

  • To build the top balance machine that John M and I discussed.

Hi Kirk!
please, accept my apologizes. When we met in Orlando last year,I promised to show you a very good link where I was explaining how to learn to do lazadas (rollercoasters) Some people have told me that they have learnt how to regenerate (with rollercoasters) from watching and analizing this video. I was Reading your post and I suddenly remembered it.
Here you are:

Although is in italian, only by seeing itself you can learn.

I hope ´twill help you.

Gracias a mi amigo por la conexión a Internet. No se necesita ninguna disculpa.

My understanding of Italian is much worse than my, poor, Spanish. As you say I am leaning by watching.

I hope you are having a good time in France.

Ciao
