FREE weather stick with every whirligig!


Whirligig History. Whirligigs (aka wind wheels) are whimsical, wind-driven expressions of American folk-art that first appeared in the United States nearly 200 years ago. The faster the wind blows, the more furiously the figures move. Some swear the resulting vibration keeps moles out of their lawns and gardens. Whatever their practical use, the pure pleasure of watching these whirring, gaily painted wind toys counts for their timeless popularity.

Materials and Construction. Our whirligigs are made in Maine "just down the road apiece" from our store in Rangeley. They are constructed of solid white pine (no plastic or plywood), sealed with durable acrylic enamel paints and painstakingly finished with silk-screened and/or hand-painted detail. They pivot freely over an included mounting nail that can be driven into a post, deck railing, etc. Or you can purchase specialized mounting accessories here. Our classic whirligigs are roughly 16" long by 11" high. Kayakers are a little smaller. Seaplanes are quite large; 34" long x 24" wide.

Shipping and availability. All models except seaplanes are in-stock and will be shipped within two business days. Two-week lead-time for seaplanes. $5.00 USA shipping. Contact us for shipping to Canada or Worldwide including the UK.
