Wow! Impressive!  8)
That's the way to go. The more tricks and ways to play it, the more appealing is the toy.

One day I'll make a trick video for the Ta-Tack. But it may take a while.

I found a thing: https://picclick.com/Vintage-Kenner-Toys-Flip-Your-Top-Game-No-284230604787.html
I can't really tell if it's really the same concept, or you just bounce the top against the paddle thing until the spin runs out.

Those don't regenerate. I don't have that specific one but I have a couple of similar paddles-with-tops toys.

I'm not completely sure about the one Tim shows on the video on this thread New tops at 2019 Nuremberg Toy Fair at 3:07. He doesn't mention that it regenerates the spin, so likely not. I have tried to find it for sale but without success.

Nice background! Spring is here!  :)

Adding the string roller coasters is a nice variation, although the Ta-Tack is currently not optimized for string play.

PS: I'm working to automatically embed TikTok video, but have not been successful yet.

The red poppies are the perfect backdrop for your performance. Well done!

Will the Ta-tack be available in the US anytime soon?

To embed TikTok, just copy and past the link of the video in the form: https://www.tiktok.com/@user/video/number
But if the user has a dot like "@tatak.official" it doesn't work. To make it work, replace the dot with an underscore: "@tatak_official"

Of course, no good deed goes unpunished...

This would be a great first post in a new how-to section of pinned posts on par with Latest Spin, etc. I'd be happy to help with content.

I don't know how much that helps in practice. There is a sticky on top of this board with instructions to post images but it seems people don't read them. I guess we could include video posting instructions to the same thread.

To order Tao. Next time I'll put the underscore to insert the video.

Hello everyone.
What do you think of what a champion does with a Ta-tack top?

Jeremy. I really have tried but I have not been able to put the video directly on the page.
