This record is to be attempted by an individual or an organisation.
This record is measured in hours, minutes and seconds.
For the purposes of this record, a 'spinning top' is defined as an object that is demonstrably designed be spun on its axis while balancing on a point through gyroscopic effect. A 'mechanical spinning top' is an item as described above that uses mechanical parts to enhance its ability to balance or spin.
