“Haro”-Schwirri (whirling noise maker)

This is a traditional noise maker. Hold the beads at the end of the double strings, one in each hand, and spin the noise maker around to wind up the strings. When you then pull outwards on the strings the spinner in the middle starts rotating. As you repeat the process the spinner revolves faster and faster and starts to make a loud whirling noise. Made in Germany.
