Tandrimo play in Madagascar
« on: June 14, 2023, 11:58:18 AM »

Gianni is traveling around Madagascar and sent me several clips of kid playing with tops that locally are know as tandrimo.

He says that they cannot be found in shops, they are always homemade, generally by the parents.
It's only played from June to October and it's forbidden in other months.

The tops at the beginning look tiny! I was surprised to see a submarine throw. It’s almost creepy how similar peg top techniques are around the world; especially in areas where it’s almost impossible for foreign interaction!  :o
