I was very surprised when I got these in the mail and they were wooden and not plastic not that it really matters. I guess the day I ordered them I was blind and couldn't read the description. After playing with them for a little bit they are very nice and spin for a very long time. I will be used these in boy treat bags for my son's class. I would definitely buy again and would recommend them.

Great price, good looks.
We bought these ahead for the school Valentine exchange and at about .40 each we are pleased with the price and quality. My 6 year old was eager to try them and set them spinning pretty easily.
The design is painted on the top, and the underside is a matching solid color. Bright clear patten with evidence of wood grain through paint (gives it a striated look). The thin wood top spins well. A couple seem a little warped, but it does not effect the spin and seems correctable with gentle pressure. Of the dozen, we received three each of the four designs shown (stripe, polka dot, swirl, heart) and they were packed 6 to a pack - not an even mix in bag - 2 sets of 2 and then 1 each of 2 colors. They are true to size, spanning about the size of my palm. I think this sets coloring is girlish, but it could have uses beyond Valentines day. We also purchased the RETRO top set, and although the same form/function, the quality of the coloring is better on the retro set (it looks more like an overlay and doesn't show the wood grain), but I still would recommend this set if the print suits you better.
