Spinning Bowl

Last week, while at a local park, our family encountered a unique toy on the playground. It's essentially a weighted spinning bowl that you sit in. You can make yourself spin faster or slower as you lean in or out. I thought it looked like fun and made Payton go in. He loved it and started laughing so hard he could barely speak.


He suggested I get in. Sure. Why not. Only a few people were there watching us.
Wow! That thing can spin fast!! Matt had to stop me because I couldn't do it myself.


Then Matt got in. That was hillarious.


We were afraid of what would happen to Max if he spun too fast, so we didn't spin him...but he did get his picture taken.

Afterwards we all felt sick for 2 hours. Maybe we don't want one for our backyard.

Lauren, I know that there is one at the Rec Center's park in Roseville. These two were at "Rotary Park" in Roseville at Utica, just south of 13 mile Rd

When I was young, our local playgroup had a spinning thing like a big circle table. I always get dizzy after wards. Not my fav part of the playground especially when the boys spin very fast.

Thanks for visiting.
