My tops just arrived and they are gorgeous.
Packaged and presented first class.
Now let the fun begin.

I have bought a few Forever Spin tops and absolutely love them! When I didn't get my latest order due to a mistake I made in the shipping address these folks went above and beyond to replace my entire order for free! They even included the special top and free gift from the original!
Best Company Every!

Please read this before purchasing.....
If you are buying from outside of Canada then you need to be aware that a customs charge will be made before you're allowed to receive the delivery (this was about £30 for me in the UK).
This is not made clear by the seller, who advertises a "free worldwide shipping" claim on it's front pages (whilst hiding a warning about potential customs charges on it's terms and conditions page - which you can find a link to in small font at the bottom of the home webpage).
Also not made clear by the seller is that they have an "all sales are final" policy - they give some fascinating (although spurious) reasons for this, but the main point is that in over decade of online shopping this is the first time I've ever seen a quality supplier follow this sort of policy, and it definitely makes me question their intent and integrity (I've come across this sort of no returns policy from a few Chinese Ebayers, but then I kind of expect that with the dodgy products I've found for sale on those occasions - fake copies of goods, etc).
To top it off the spinning tops themselves are only of mediocre quality, and certainly don't spin for very long at all (about two minutes maximum, and I dare Forever spin to provide video evidence of their tops spinning for any longer - they could put it on their website along with guidance of how to spin properly, but I'm pretty sure they won't).
I would return mine if I could....
Following the sellers polite response to my review I thought I'd update it with extracts from their separate direct email to me....
".....it's not MY fault that you don't order internationally often. Obviously, you have the wrong impression......I'm not sure why you would think that the default is for there to be free refunds for international orders, though this is absolutely not the case....."
I am changing my review from two stars to one accordingly...

The service was excellent and the spinning tops and bases arrived within days to Finland. Really good quality, I do recommend.

I can 100% support what Kyle Jackson has written below.
The product is so amazingly different due to its simplicity and excellence. Every decent desk should have a set of spinning tops.
And when you have a bad day, you just spin and spin and spin.
It took a couple of weeks to reach me in South Africa but just when i thought it won't arrive, Viktor was with me all the way reassuring me and sharing my concerns. When it finally got to me i was so excited as the whole product was worth waiting for. It starts at the packaging, one marvels at the precision engineering and it simply spins forever.

Great product, well-made, smooth and silky, real attention to details in the parcel (little cotton bags, stickers, card etc.), fast delivery, and a real pleasure playing with this top.
Review by Saltbush Wobbe3 months ago
I can honestly say I never thought I'd write a review for a top -- perhaps the simplest and oldest of toys. If I had to describe ForeverSpin's tops in three words, I'd say tactile, satisfying, and, unexpectedly, therapeutic. These things are the junction of precision engineering and art. The pictures don't do them justice. Hold one in your hand, spin one, and you'll understand.
The company is personable and responsive. The packaging is excellent and should inspire others. The machining and finish quality of the product is top notch (see what I did there? Heh.).

I love anything that comes with a personal touch and that's what you get with the spinning top. Stylish packaging, timely delivery and a great product. Perfect for the office. Spinning the top really helps you clear your head and refocus. It's also an icebreaker for group meetings. Love it!
Review by Falachan Lanh4 months ago
I would like to take a moment to share my recent experience with FOREVERSPIN. It regarded the spinning base which I had purchased. Viktor was the gentleman with whom I exchanged a dozen emails. At the start I want to point out that he was friendly, professional, and had a good sense of humor. Part of my issue revolved around my disability which caused some problems spinning. Viktor was incredibly accommodating, providing me with a new base, some helpful hints, and a complimentary ‘mystery’ top. The new top is lighter and easier to spin.
I am grateful to the folks at FOREVERSPIN and especially Viktor for the excellent service they provided. I would not hesitate for a second to highly recommend FOREVERSPIN and their fine line of quality tops and spinning bases.

Fantastic customer service, super fast delivery and a beautiful product. Viktor was an amazing help in getting me the right product. Yes, the tops are small, but they spin perfectly and are a great addition to any professionals desktop. Will totally recommend this to friends looking for a different type of gift than the norm!!

Product is great and probably better in real life than on photos and videos. Service is excellent and I highly recommend Foreverspin for your spinning tops - it's awesome!
Review by Puxtongirl Mullarkey5 months ago
Well, what can I say!!!???
I have already bought the spinning tops and now I purchased a spinning base, and I have to say; the spinnings are even better! The polished surface gives a much longer time of spinning.
I had some problems with the Post Office in my country (bought the spinning base in february and it took four months to be possibly delivered and, somehow even after I have payed all the taxes they have returned my spinning base to the sender again, it took three weeks to get in my country and the other three and a half months of arguing with the Post office for nothing); but within all this trouble Viktor helped me and did all the possible efforts for me to receive my spinning base, and after four days I received it. Again I have to say, their products are awesome and their after sales assistance is amazing. Thank you all ForeverSpinning staff!!!!
Review by Staceyjoy5 months ago
We ordered three tops, a dock, and a spinning base. They all came very quickly. In addition, each item was wrapped in a very nice cloth bag, and placed in an attractive box. Info on the specific tops/metals was also included. PLUS there was a nice metal money clip sort of item, which was holding lots of other useful intel, and also a coupon for a future purchase. Thank you ForeverSpin!

ForeverSpin's emphasis on the unique attributes of different metals may change your answer.
I ordered a few tops and accessories a couple years ago, but then gave most of them away as Christmas gifts. ForeverSpin came up with an amazing concept to make these super high quality versions of such a timeless and simple object.
Review by Saideepan5 months ago
You know those products that you spend a little more money on where the product quality, packaging, presentation and ownership brings a sense of pride? These tops are one of those products. From the spinning base to the dock to the tops themselves, it is all elegance that has brought me hours of enjoyment in spinning. After trying out the bronze, I decided to go for the museum. They are all so different in weight and feel and looks. There really is something to perfectly machined metal and the weight differences that makes me want to spin all of them. The hardest part is deciding which tops to buy - so many choices.
Review by Marriam Indsay5 months ago
The service was excellent, and nicely packaged. They even
e-mailed me to inform me that the package had been attempted delivered, when the Danish mailservice failed to do so themselfs.
The tops are very calming and stylish to look at. And spinning them feels kinda therapeutic in a way. Overall I'm pretty happy with the experience.

Awesome Spin Tops!
I keep the steel top and base on my desk at work and constantly try to break my record, 4 minutes 3 seconds so far for the 28 gram steel.
I bought our first spin top for my 7 year anniversary (copper). My wife was really surprised and I think it’s going to be more my hobby now.
I will definitely order more in the future!
I love your Brand, your packaging, your message, and quality!

It is a wonderful piece in my desk, I love it.
DHL attempted to deliver to a wrong address, sales department corrected it and I received mine 24hrs later.

Wonderful tops, exceptional team.
I received a nickel top and spinning base for Christmas and have purchased two more tops (aluminum & magnesium) since then. These are my only tops so I have no point of comparison but these tops are beautiful. It sounds corny but I find them to be elegant, in form and in spinning.
The purchasing experience was exactly as one would hope and my experience with their customer service (I damaged the nickel top) was exceptional.

I bought a Titanium top in 2016 and thought it was just high quality and fun. I jumped on the chance to get a Humanium top early. I ordered two and two bases and two display mounts. I also just ordered 3 more tops. I am so impressed with how quickly I get replies, even to simple not-important inquiries.
Thanks for great products and excellent service.
Review by Vildan6 months ago
Engineering Envy - that is what these have caused proudly displayed on my desk. They are carefully designed, precision-manufactured objects that will captivate you with their perfect balance and tactile feel. For the engineer or machinist in your life, these are an incredible gift, but anybody will love them! I opted for a set of five roughly distributed across the range of mass: magnesium, titanium, black zirconium, Damascus steel, and bronze.
Review by Hagey6 months ago
I was intrigued by the first ad I saw for these tops, and I ended up buying one as a gift for a friend. I was glad when it arrived in its bag because that meant I didn't have to rip it out of plastic to try it before giving it to my friend!! Needless to say, I was hooked from the first attempt to spin it. I immediately ordered myself a couple of tops and a base - and haven't stopped since!
I had an inquiry with the company that was handled by Viktor, he has been outstanding throughout!!
On another note, I have Parkinson's Disease, and I mentioned the tops to my neurologist, and he feels that they are an excellent addition to my exercise routine. He stated that the repetitive fine motor skills used to spin the tops are an excellent use of hand-eye coordination, and since I have "resting hand tremor", the additional targeted movement of spinning the tops minimizes the occurrences of the tremor. That was an unexpected bonus for me, beyond the fun!!
There was something very satisfying to getting that first perfect motionless spin!!

Fantastic delivery from Canada to the UK. Really nice packaging, beautifully made and rather addictive. I already want more, and I don't even know why.
Review by Baltozar6 months ago
This is a beautiful object, perfectly crafted, which is a pleasure to feel in your hands; plus, for the fans of Inception like me, this is also an iconic item which makes you think of the famous spin at the end of the movie.
I have to add that such precious article comes with an impeccable service: it's wonderfully packed, delivery is perfect and the email follow up by the co-founder added a last personal touch.
all in all, great value for money!
