Bought one of these for a fellow thirty-something gadget fiend friend. He loves it - and so do I! Great fun for small groups. It's spent some time at his office. Apparently it spins quite well on desks...
Engaging little thing, this is. Doesn't look much, just a disc with a fold-up spindle to turn it into a top. But the LED display is timed so that it can show all sorts of things: revolutions, high score, etc. Very addictive.
I've scored it 4 for durability because it's quite cheap and one wouldn't expect it to be perfectly solid for the money, however the spindle mechanism isn't perfect so I think that a little "play" would develop in the movement over time. The top works well even so.
It's not really educational hence the low rating.
Really good fun though. In addition to the built-in games I'm sure it could be used for all sorts of forfeit/bonus type games for adults as well as children.

I-Top is a good fun, original toy. Myself and my partner (I'm 28, he's 41) loved it, as did everyone in the pub where we took it to play with! On the down side, although we had fun with the light display and the games, tables are not a good idea as the Top falls off and ours broke! It still kind of works but not as well, so durability is not good. All in all though, a great idea for little boys and girls of all ages. I might buy the "Pro" version as a gift this year...

I bought the regular itop for my nephew last year, what can I say, it's a brilliant toy, he liked it a lot, I think I liked it even more though. There's something quite facinating about the array of LEDs that creates a message, very clever. Lots of fun games...what can I say, just get it!

Bought both my children one for stocking fillers, and by the evening both tops had been taken over by 5 grown up men challenging each other who could spin the most. By boxing day men betting with money who could spin most and kids have not had a look in. So now buying men one each for their birthdays.

Got this for my wife as a stocking filler but going to have to prise it out of my fellow techies hands as its great going for the high score. Only downside we all want to know how it works but afraid of breaking it and not being able to put it back together again. Excellent toy, will program up with a message for my wife and clear the high score before she opens it xmas day.

Hi, I managed 3 spins of game play after reading the rules before the top broke. I expect that you intend to spin this on a table - and that occasionally you expect that the top may fall off the table - but it breaks and then works intermittently, the screws holding the two halves together don't hold and the plastic thread breaks. Poor quality toy - don't bother with it!

A set of instructions on various games and how to access them would have been useful, then I could have written a proper review instead of wondering what happens when I press the mode button. Help?

Rolling this is not just about doing the best score...
It's just fun !
I always have one with me wherever I go (but with a dust cover).
Flashing lights telling things when it's rolling, it's just fun for everyone.

I wish I had been advised that this product is really for persons who know and understand how to use it because very inadequate instructions come with it and is is not immediately obvious how to play the variety of games advertised on it. It does make a viable old fashioned spinning top though. I must say I feel a little misled but c'est la vie!

Good little toy but little the operative word, doesnt tell you in the description that it is only as big as your hand and therefore disappointed with the product
