Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader. Klaus is a skilled and experienced carpenter with a particular love for handmade wooden toys. His workshop is located in Austria in the foothills of the Alps and produces traditional spinning tops, skipping ropes, wobbly toys, kaleidoscopes, and yoyos. Many products are made entirely by hand from locally sourced wood, sometimes requiring up to 20 different processes before they are complete. The quality and finesse of each toy is apparent as soon as you pick it up to inspect it.
