Batman, Popeye and Superman handmade wooden 'acrobat' toys - bought on a market stall in Spain last year.

Where and how is it used?

You squeeze the bottom of the wooden struts in your hand to make the figures spin around and loop the loop etc. They sit on my window sill next to my desk and occasionally get played with.

What did you or someone else pay for it?

2 or 3 Euros each I think

Why do you want to add it to the museum?

Because I really like them. They are very crudely made but I just love the colours and the jaunty way they spin about. They make me smile.
