Digiteeritud eesti ajalehed


foto 2 vurrid

Rudolf, Markus and Rasmus, all hundud (cubs) from Pärnu who attended the Eesti rahvus/vaheline skautide suur/laager – Estonian international scout jamboree "Seiklus/ratas" or "Wheel of Adventure" in Tagametsa in Järvamaa, central Estonia, said they thought the simple old-fashioned cardboard spinners they made in camp are more durable than fidget spinners (at least until vihma sajab – it rains).


"And you can wear them around your neck." The original old Estonian vurrid were a piece of bone or button on a string. These boys all have the new näpuvurrid as well. Markus lamented that his friend had just drowned his 16 € model off a bridge into the Pärnu River... While behind them in this photo is the Saar/jõe River. It's also worth mentioning that Markus won third and Rasmus first place in the under 12 age category of the 1,7 km pea/skaudi krossi/jooks (chief scout cross country race) the next day. There were a total of 524 people at suur/laager, 62 from abroad. Photos and text: Riina Kindlam, Tagametsa


foto 1 näpuvurr

The sound it makes is the name it bears – vurr. Onomatopoetic. The essentially simple fidget spinner toys have become children's favourites worldwide and eesti lapsed (kids) are no exception. This poster on a mängu/asja/poe (toy store) window declares it's the populaarseim mängu/asi 2017. Aastal (most popular toy of 2017). Nüüd kohal! Now here! Eesti lapsed call them fidget spinners too , but also by their Estonian name näpu/vurr – finger vurr (spinner, also top).
