Spinning plates are great circus toys for children and are often one of the first circus props young kids try in circus skills workshops. Spinning plates are also very cheap meaning they make excellent birthday or Christmas gifts for small children. Don't let they're low price deceive you though, the plastic they are made from is very durable. We also have aluminium spinning plates which are more suitable for performers. The spinning plates for sale here all come with a stick included but you can also buy spare or replacement spinning plate sticks here.
The easiest way to get the plate spinning is to simply pop it on to the stick and push the plate round with your hand. You can then practice balancing the stick and spinning plate on your hand, finger or even your face. The next step up is to hang the plate from its lip on the stick. You then make big circles with the stick until it goes horizontal. By making the stick circles increasingly smaller and faster you can get the plate spinning really fast and it will shift the stick to the centre of the plate. There is a knack to this technique but it gives children (and adults) a good lesson in circus skills; you need to practice to learn a skill but the rewards are great!
As well as that important lesson spinning plates, and circus skills in general, help to develop hand-eye co-ordination, balance and confidence all while going something physical and active.
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.
