Initially popular as a wooden children’s toy, the humble windspinner (or “whirligig” in the middle ages) has gone through multiple iterations over the centuries. In its more recognisable modern form, windspinners are a great way to make outdoor spaces more visually appealing and come in a vast range of shapes, styles and designs to suit your garden. From intricate solar powered spinners that look great at night, to simple lightweight designs that add vibrancy to your garden. To show you what we mean, here are a few of our favourite windspinners from our new range;
This beautiful and lightweight Peacock Spinner is a great way to add some light and colour to your garden or balcony, as it provides a mesmerising and shimmering appearance. Featuring a dual-arm design and a built in LED solar light (that auto-activates at sunset), this spinner is able to pack plenty of motion, light and movement into any outdoor space!
Just like the Peacock above, this charming butterfly spinner packs a colourful solar-powered punch and will make a great addition to your garden in all lighting conditions. Thanks to its use of cupped windcatchers, it also requires less wind to get moving and is therefore ideal for areas that don't get much of a breeze!
Our Giant Woodland Windmill might not have been the first thing that came to mind when thinking of a wind-spinner, but we're sure you'll agree that it's delightfully distinctive design fits in with any garden! While it may be relatively large compared to the rest, the Woodland Windmill is free-standing and can therefore be placed on any surface.
Ride out the summer months in style with this stunning bronze-brushed penny farthing inspired windspinner! Not only will it add character to your garden, but the front wheel spins and features 4 solar powered LEDs which activate at night to light up your garden. Whether at dawn, midday or dusk this piece will provide timeless aesthetic appeal at all hours of the day.
Last but certainly not least, this "Spiro" spinner features two sets of large spinners (one on each side) which provide an appealing maelstrom of motion. Much like some of our other featured products, it also includes a self-activating solar LED light with a choice of toggleable colours.
With all that being said, we still haven't even scratched the surface of our overall windspinner range in this post today as there is such a vast variety of products available. To explore the rest of our range, please click here
