He appears fascinated.

Oh, the slight wobble I gave the top causes the design to be at a slight angle at times. That alternate location changes it's position in any given frame, so that can trigger a perceived reversal in rotation too.

With film, it's the position of the object or design in each individual frame. Imagine the duckies spinning clockwise. (which they are in this animation) If the rate of rotation is such that each time a frame captures a still image the object has rotated so that the following duckies appear slightly behind where the original was, and that happens frame after frame, the duckies will appear to be moving in reverse. If the rate of spin is such that they're in exactly the same place, they'll look like they're standing still. The stripes are spaced differently than the duckies, so they sometimes look like they're not rotating.
There are also dirty spots on the top and handle that are widely spaced, so the effect doesn't happen with them. They always look like they're rotating clockwise. That tells your brain which way the top is actually spinning and can affect how it views the rotation of the other designs. In short, your brain can get a little confused and see both rotation directions.
Even when viewing a spinning object in real life you can experience the same effect due to the speed at which your brain processes the visual data and the rotation speed. You may have noticed that watching a fan. Especially after turning it off and it's rotation begins to slow. It will look like it's rotating in one direction, and then as it slows, look like it's rotating in the other.
My frame speed, FPS (frames per second) in that animation is 24 frames per second. That's way to many frames per second for your brain to process each, so it does the best it can.
That's also why it can't see fast moving objects clearly. Depending on their speed, they're either a blur, or disappear altogether. They're not in one location long enough for your brain to process.
I hope that all makes sense.

How does that happen? Do you know?

Yeah.... They can be seen to go either way. It's an optical effect of motion, spacing, and shutter speed.
You've probably seen the same thing happen to wagon wheels in old western movies.
If you look at the handle of the top, you can see that it's spinning clockwise, but the ducks can appear to be going in either direction, and the stripes can look like they're not moving.
I didn't do it on purpose. It was just by happenstance.

I am unsure. They seem to go to the left and right.

Out of curiosity, which way do the little duckies on the top look like they're going to you... Fast clockwise... or slower, counterclockwise?

It's not strange to me. I didn't like candy either.
My sister and Mom would raid my Halloween candy.
About the only thing I actually like is chocolate, but I rarely have it. My treats are fruits and nuts.
There's a brand of organic walnuts that I like a lot.
Nature's Eats. They're certified GMO free too.

Dr. Koser asked me to step on his Hallow toys and asked me if, want candy. I said, I do not eat candy. It may seem strange to some. I have not eaten much candy since I was a child. I eat organic food, mostly fruit, vegetables and protein. I eat dark chocolate and cakes on holidays.

Thanks.
My Halloween picture is more cute than scary this year too.
