I think "She" is a he. ;) 

Modified my previous post, today, to conform to SpinQueen’s keen observation!
(Thanks!  :))

I do believe she is flirting with you Takeshi!  :)

I think "She" is a he. ;)   If the two larger children are older siblings, I would guess by all their clothing, that the little one is a boy.  Some people hate to cut off the baby curls and some boys just have long hair....right Takeshi?   Notice that the clothing/shoes on the little one lacks color compared to the other two children and with two older sisters, I don't think those clothes would be hand-me-downs.  That's my bet anyway.

But the blue bow/flower on the shoe? ??? :-\
No biggie.
As long as there's an interest for top spinning...
I'd probably give a big grin too.
A joy for top spinning.

Ahh, the mystery of the little child continues.  I was leaning toward a boy but Mark brings up a good point about the shoe decoration.  I decided to go to the definitive source and asked my wife what she thought.  Her first comment was "it could go either way."  Then she said the shirt is kind of masculine.  At that point I asked her about the shoes and she studied them for a while and eventually said "they look like crocs.  People put things in the crocks for decoraion.  It could still be a girl but I think it's a boy."

This thing is for sure, Takeshi sure looks good in his whip catch!

Yes, anybody can nominate a photograph (their own or others). The only rules are that the photo needs to be somehow spintop related, taken in 2011, and either taken by a member of the board or featuring a member of the board.

Hey, Takeshi, do you whip by getting the top through the loop?  :D

Assuming csam is right and the girls are the kid's sisters, he must be a boy: both have pink laces in their shoes (and one also a pink flower ring) while he has a blue decoration on his shoes.

I nominate this picture by Eric:

Mystery Solved.
good detective work trompillo.

I enlarged the photo and that seems to be the correct shoe.
Now I can't seem to figure out what the blue thing is on the shoe?
Now it's kinda looking like a turtle?... ??? :-\
blurry eye strain.
blurry eye strain on that Neff photo too but at least I now it's a top and what kind of top it is. It would be even a better photo if the top wasn't blurry. but still a nice photo from Eric though...

I like this photo of hands searching for a top:


In case you did not recognize them, Zeemo's hands are in there. Here is another picture of him and a top at the Traverse City Film Festival.

I think the tittle of the photo should be "He's got more skill in his little finger than I do in my whole body..."

...and I'm not exactly svelte ;D
