If you're confused about the huge range of options and prices here's bit of a guide for balls, clubs and diabolo - obviously there's a much larger range than the few items listed here and we've just picked out the most popular options.
The items on our website are all here in NZ so no waiting for goods to arrive from overseas and no unpleasant Customs fees and delays on arrival.
If we run out of an item it will show as Out Of Stock when you add it to your shopping cart. (Sometimes colour options will be limited but we will email you if we can't supply your first choice.)
Your order is usually shipped the same day that your payment clears into our bank account - estimated shipping times can be seen on our Shipping and Returns page
If you're uncertain about the process of creating an account and adding contents to a shopping basket feel free to email us with your list of items (preferably with the product code numbers), your delivery address and a contact number and we'll process your order manually - we email you payment and shipping info once we receive your order.
Juggling equipment is very much one of those "get what you pay for" things in life. So we've broken down our guide into Premium (the really good gear the professionals use), Mid-range (the good stuff, but maybe not as durable or smooth as the Premium models) and the Economic (fancy name for the cheaper stuff that will give you a taste of juggling but you'll want to upgrade if you think you could get serious about this juggling game).
Balls: Absolute 125gm 68mm Juggling Ball (B2200)The "standard" juggling ball used by the majority of jugglers. They fit beautifully in your hand and will take you from 3 ball basics to advanced tricks and numbers juggling.
Clubs: Henrys Pirouette - widely regarded as the best on the market, available as a decorated club (Pirouette Circus or European models) or as an undecorated club (Pirouette Trainer).
Diabolo: There's a couple of options here; the traditional rubber compound diabolo from German manufacturer Henrys,the Henrys Circus tough, smooth and still one of the most commonly used diabolo's around the world after many years of production.
Or the new kid on the block, the Sundia Shining, this is rapidly becoming the market leader for performers and we think they're the smoothest around.
We sell more in this range than any other and this is where you'll find some of the best deals.
Balls: There's not really a mid range option here, we recommend you invest in good quantity balls as it really is the single most important prop that the quality matters. Again, we recommend the Absolute 125gm 68mm Juggling Ball (B2200) The standard juggling ball used by the majority of jugglers.
Clubs: The most popular clubs in this range are from Beard of the UK The clubs in this range are all much the same but with different versions of decorations. You can see the range here
Diabolo: Easily the best option in this range is from Henrys of Germany again. The Henrys Vision would easily fit in the premium range with it's smooth running and good looks. The added bonus is these are a fantastic deal sold with Henrys Aluminium Handsticks (usually $29.95 on their own).
Balls: Our Synthetic Ball Sets are very popular, they're not nearly as nice to juggle as the Absolute 4-panel balls but you do get a set of 3 balls and an instruction sheet for about the same price as a single Absolute 4-panel ball.
For smaller hands, there's the Yoho set of 3 balls and and instructional Cd Rom all packed up with a carry bag. Yoho Balls and CD Rom Set
Clubs: Well, they're pretty basic but they are well made and are an excellent budget option....and a bit harder on the hands than other clubs. The Flare 1-Piece is a popular club and we sell a lot of these to school groups and other institutions where you "just want to have a go".
Diabolo: Flare Medium Diabolo; These are the best starter diabolo we have found and are especially well suited to younger kids due to their smaller smaller size and lighter weight. You won't be doing an awful lot of the fancy tricks with these but you will have a lot of fun learning the basics.
Our Juggling Beginner Pack Deluxe are a great way to get you going with all the basics of juggling.
