Sansia VI:Spinning Top (陀螺)

Other than the noodle bowl at the top of this sign, what is that brown wooden structure in the middle of the sign?  It is a model of Spinning Top.  

Here is another sign, now the model has a string attach to it.

This is a Spinning Top in action.  This is a game we all played when we were kids.  We wrapped the Top with a string.  When we threw the Top, we pulled the string at the same time.  The top spun when it landed on the ground.  If you are good at it, you can whip the top with the string and keep on spinning it.

Yes, I remember playing with a spinning top. It was great. This one seems to be spinning on top of some plate, probably making it more difficult.
