Bought for a Christmas gift for a great niece, but couldn't resist having a go! Great fun and I am sure everyone will be wanting a shot on Christmas Day
Review by Aeva,
This is 3rd pair I bought!!! The first two pairs I got from a festival years ago and I spinned my adults one over and over and they are still spinning. The second one are in Italy with a very happy teen.. This last one are great, great size for a kid (12) to start with as they are the perfect length for smaller arms and they are almost pain free when you get it wrong
Review by Dooble,
Purchased these for my partners 6 year old. They are a great length and weight for her to be able to learn with but still a good length for me to be able to show her a few tricks. Really made me want to practice a bit more. so good stuff all round
good value robust toy
Review by Anna of Owlcats,
I bought a set of these a few years ago because the shorter strings allowed me to practice indoors. Apart from a couple of snags where the tails have caught on things (avoid swinging directly under a lampshade ;-) ) they are still going strong and are perfect for introducing my grandkids to poi. The new ones I just got are a fraction shorter in the string (about 3cm) which makes a surprising difference to me when I use them so I have had to feel my way into using them. Just as well made as my first set though! And they only hurt if you smack yourself right in the eye...
Just what I wanted
Review by J,
Got these to get my 6-year-old niece into spinning so one day we can spin together. She loves them! They're just the right size so that I can demonstrate moves and then she can try them out. The scarves are a nice touch. Plus, the weights are soft enough that even her little sibling can't do much damage with them!
Beautiful little poi, excellent for both beginners and advanced spinners
Review by Pixel,
These lovely little handmade poi are like a cross between twirling ribbons and sock poi, with sheer scarf-like material attached to each poi which creates a pretty trailing effect as they spin round - very entertaining to watch. The ends of each poi are squishy and soft, making them perfect for beginners (no nasty bruises if you happen to accidentally collide with your poi!), and are very lightweight - they're built more for speed than for tricks which require a lot of counterweight, so I would recommend them more as dance poi. In fact, they make excellent clubbing poi as some of the flags are UV reactive, and their size and softness makes them safe for the dancefloor. The cord is nice and strong, and comes with a 2-handled loop; being quite short, I prefer the kids' version, but a taller adult would probably want the full size version with longer strings. I did have a little bit of an initial learning curve when first using these poi, as the scarves tend to get tangled up around each other (or the spinner!) very easily - but all it takes is a bit of extra practice. I would say it's definitely worth adding some spiral poi to your collection, even if you're an experienced spinner :)
Firetoys have the most helpful staff to speak to. I called Firetoys and the chap talked me through the right weight, stick material, bearings or not and price range that we would need to look at. The diabolos are perfectly right for our children and I really appreciate the help choosing. I would definitely use Firetoys again and highly recommend.
I'm totally satisfied about the item I received and about how the delivery has been handled. The parcel has been properly delivered in a few days. Thanks a lot.
Both items received are excellent and the helpful phone call and following service were second to none. Many thanks!
It came exactly as described, promptly and without excess packaging. Really accurately described! I'm really excited to play with my new toy and exceptionally pleased with the buying and delivery process. Thank you Firetoys for a great purchase experience!!
Your customer service is outstanding, as always. This is why I shop through you and always have done, despite (occasionally) being informed of cheaper outlets, I could never expect the same quality of service from them.
Everything I had hoped for and more! I will definitely buy from you guys again as soon as I get better at juggling. Thanks!
Having experienced this level of customer care for which I am very grateful, I can confidently recommend Firetoys to my colleagues and friends. Many thanks
Amazing and friendly customer service and beautiful great quality equipment. Bought a couple of hoops from here and both are great - when I had a very unlikely issue it was solved straight away
I would definitely recommend Firetoys to anyone and they'll have in me a future customer because of their good will and customer support! Thank you!
Loving your range, and thank you for such a speedy call about my flowlight dilemma!! Got 'em ordered, in the end...good vibrations from your customer service, completely satisfied!
Sick one, boys. Cheers. Super quick delivery and just in time to give to my fella on his birthday. Heartily impressed, will be in touch again without a doubt.
I'm really pleased with my order! It was a fast delivery and my new items are of great quality, very nicely made. I will remain a loyal customer of Firetoys!
We just received our second order from you and are delighted! You got [it] here so fast! Thank you, thank you, thank you! The quality of your juggling materials has been superb! We are thrilled.
