Another game

Hi you guys! This game was famous in my country about 20 years ago. Did you guys ever play it? If yes, what is it called?

I haven't seen it in that form but I assumed it is a type of Spinning Top. A quick search brought up https://youtu.be/_sKJod9oEV4

Yes, spinning tops. They look a little different than they did in my day. I haven't seen one in years but they were all the rage when I was a kid in the sixties. I had one that was a spinning top/yoyo hybrid. There was a button on one half of the yoyo that allowed the string to detach from the spindle and a removable plastic cone that snapped onto the other half so you could throw it (sideways) like a top. I completely forgot about that until just this minute...nice!
