I got this cool toy for my birthday!

It’s called an i-top and it’s the modern (geeky?) edition of the ancient spinning top.

This new version has a row of 8 led’s onboard, and by turning these leds on and off very quickly while spinning several games can be played.


Top This Mode… Spin the top and get the highest score. Compete against your friends or just beat your own high score.

Match Top Mode… The i-Top gives you a target and you have to spin the top to stop it as close to the number as possible.

Top Speed Mode… Spin the i-Top as fast as you can to get the highest RPM (revolutions per minute). Watch the i-Top record your speed.

Mystic Top Mode… Ask a question and watch the i-Top give you a response to your yes/no question. Over 30 different responses!

Hidden Mode:

The I-Top even has a hidden mode! And this is how you activate the hidden mode (also called secret mode):

Turn the I-top on, and select mode 1
Press and hold PLAY and MODE simultaniously
Hold for about 2-3 seconds, then release both buttons.
Led 1-8 will light up shortly to tell you that the hidden mode has been activated, and then mode 1 will stay blinking.

To return to the regular mode press the play button.

Have fun with your I-Top!
