Thank you!
I'm sure this will be a best seller for beginners. In the Meanwhilr this week Dionisia is discounted.

A good top for beginners is always welcomed and if it has the S8 quality much better!
I look forward to trying it. Are you coming to Marines?

I received mine yesterday and I like it a lot!

It's a bit smaller than I expected, even smaller than the usual mexican tops. But it's super nice to play, very heavy and spins super long and smooth.

Nice one, thanks to you Maurizio!

I got my Alice at Marines (a blue one).
Many people played with Alice tops in Marines and everybody loved them. Dany (Orso) through a 6000 RPM boomerang with it.

The photo shows also some other family members that I am very happy to play with.

Beautiful tops — love their profiles! I want all 5. Who sells them?

Wonder how my somewhat similar 3" Relampago would spin down from 6,000 RPM? Still have my LEGO adapter for it. And my most powerful LEGO electric starter could probably get it most of the way to 6,000 RPM. Just depends on the air resistance.

Alice is a really good top, great for beginners but also good for advanced players and easy to carry in the pocket. It was the top I probably threw the most at Marines.
I will write a review in the next few weeks.

A nice group of tops, for sure, Jim!

It helps me understand the size of the new top when compared with the others. Thank you for posting.


You, too, Ortwin. The photos make it easy to compare sizes,
