I'm not sure what I still have.  I'm not home right now, but will check next week.  I think I have a few of the complete kits around?

I do have quite a few of  "The Little Book of Tops".

thanx for the info , Don

although i'm not a collector , more an amateur
i would be interested in getting one copy of "the little book"
i have the one about yoyos but never seen its counterpart for tops

i'll send you my adress in MP , if you would be kind enough to send me a copy
i can refund the postage costs and probably can also cover the purchase

tell me if that could be a deal  ;) , please

yours spinfully

The best thing is that the Little book comes with a wooden finger top at the end of the bookmark.


If I recall correctly, I got the Little Book with a Toycrafter kit while the Book of Tops I got used by itself.

Don: I am sure everybody here would want to buy one of those kits :D. Oh!, and belated Happy Birthday!
