Welcome to TOPS
Unwind a Surprise ball - share trinkets, messages, fortunes, old fashioned toys, and candies. Experience the joy of a Number Sparkler or shoot a Confetti Fountain 15 ft into the air. Discover the glee of finding secret messages and lucky charms in Good Fortune Candles.
Here is how TOPS began:
As a kid I loved putting on carnivals in the back yard and making summer art programs for the kids in the neighborhood. I am "right brain", but grew up in a "left brain" household (scientist and accountant). While my dad was unwinding genetic code, I couldn't wait to unwind the Japanese surprise ball he brought home from his travels. I loved watching the glint in his eye when he introduced us to a German metal pouring kit that told fortunes and the surprise of Russian nesting dolls. I remember the intrigue and excitement these gifts brought and the common ground they brought to my family.
This background sparked TOPS
I hope that these discoveries and inventions will be a platform to bring excitement and memories to your gatherings and keep the table talking.
