Warren Wallaby has his friends over to play at his house, but it's raining and they can't go outside. They convince him, against his better judgement, to play "wallaby spinning tops" - a game he has been forbidden to play inside. Soon the inevitable happens and a family keepsake gets broken when the game gets out of hand. Warren runs away from home because he thinks his mother will never forgive him. He discovers how much his mother really loves him and strives to be as good a little wallaby as possible.
