Hello wonderful humans!
It’s that time of year once more, so we’ve put together a helpful little guide of gift ideas, just incase you’ve got that person in your life whom you have no idea of what to get them for Christmas.
We reckon you, everyone you know and everyone you will ever know, will love to learn to juggle.
Trust the jugglers 😉

It’s been around for centuries, it’ll be around for centuries more, and still, new tricks and skills with it are being created all the time. The Diabolo is a great prop for developing rhythm, focus, hand eye coordination, and most importantly…fun
The Diabolo now comes in lot’s of different variations, but the main 2 categories are ‘Bearing’ and ‘Non-Bearing’. Non-Bearing Diabolo’s, being the traditional version of the prop, would require the player to take breaks from tricks, to speed up the Diabolo once more. With a Bearing Diabolo, the prop will spin for much longer, enabling greater sequences of tricks.
The JD Carousel Set is a great budget option for a kids bearing diabolo – Carousel Set.

Originally used by dancers in Maori culture, Poi has now been spread all over the world. A performance art in its own right, the technical skills of what is possible are also constantly being pushed. They can even be juggled!
While most commonly known from the, wow and danger factor of Fire, or LED shows, practice poi are also incredibly fun and the best place to start for those thinking about spinning fire.
With their long flowing scarf ends the Pyro Pixies Spiral Poi look amazing and are ideal for practicing with!

If you’ve already fallen in love with juggling 3 Balls, or know someone who has, and are looking for a slightly different challenge than just adding a 4th. Well then you need a set of clubs.
While Balls and Clubs share a lot of patterns, there is just a lot more object to play with in a club, and they have plenty of unique properties of their own.
The Juggle Dream ‘ Euro’ is a great entry level club. Though relatively light, the club spins very nicely and with wrapped handles the catches are even more comfortable in the hands.
