It's a colonial or at least early toy. The piece with the two holes in it. You run a string through the holes and wind it up then pull on the ends of the string and the disc spins and winds itself back up again and if you pull it fast enough it makes a sound as it spins. Homemade toy.

Hey CT. The whizzer was alright. I've made them with a large button. But usually the button is light in weight and a string ( thread because Mom always had plenty) was run through both holes of the button making something like a 12" diameter. You could make them as big as you like. Where the ends met it was tied in a hard knot and the button was moved to the center. Long story-----short, you would pull both ends of the string and the spinning button would recoil with the spinning thread and feel like a rubber band. Good home-made toy. We didn't have many store-bought ones..............After writting all of that, with that piece having a hole in the center, could it also have been a spur rawl. I don't know if it is spelled correctly. Good finds CD.

That takes me back as like you we had Whizzers in the 1940`s..

Some were quite large.

Happy Hunting.
