The Juggle Dream Jester Diabolo is a perfect starter chinese yoyo for kids and beginners. My kids have one of these and they have had so much fun with it. Your kids will love trying new tricks and learning to master the Diabolo. This version comes with a bearing axle that only spins one way. That means you can get your diabolo spinning much faster and for longer than with the fixed axle found on the standard Jester. The bearing axle also gives you an extra wide gap between the cups. This extra space makes finger and stick grinds easier to perform than with diabolos that have a narrower axle. The cups are made from a durable rubber that is scratch resistant and can handle drops from height and durable fiberglass sticks. These hand sticks are strong but fairly lightweight. These fibreglass has a bit of flex which can help you accelerate the diabolo more quickly. This set comes with a drawstring bag to store your diabolo set.
