Like many flow props, devil sticks have been around for yonks. If you grew up in the 70’s or 90’s, you may remember playing with these in your youth! We absolutely love a good spin with our sticks, and we’re sure you will too. Our little devils are designed to be simple enough for beginners to learn quickly, yet comfortable for more advanced users.
Our handmade devil sticks are the perfect option for beginners and advanced users alike, and are designed to handle drops and knocks with ease.
With brilliant UV-reactive colours under a striking black cross-grip, they’re sure to stand out from the crowd.
Each set of devil sticks comes with your choice of hand stick and flower stick base colour - choose from our five fantastically fluorescent, UV-reactive colours.
WHAT’S ON FOR THE FLOWMIES?
Winter is Passing is on this weekend in Tauranga! A juggling focused mid-winter festival to warm you up with juggling and passing during the day, and evenings loaded with board games in front of a toasty fire with friends both new and old. We’d love to hear the tales of your experience if you’re heading to Winter is Passing this weekend!
Circulation is a music, workshop and circus performance festival just out of Dunedin. They boast a strong community focus and a child friendly environment. Each day is bursting with workshops and each night is a riot of live music and performances. They also have an open fire spinning circle every night and anyone (after attending a fire safety briefing) is welcome to have a burn.
It’s commonly believed that juggling sticks were used in ancient China over 2000 years ago, although there is no hard proof of this. Legend has it that a troupe of Tibetan performers played in front of the Emperor and he was so blown-away by their stick play that he proclaimed there must be a devil spirit giving the stick a life of its own, thus the name ‘devil sticks’.
Did you know, the first image of juggling sticks dates all the way back to 1820?!
Check out our article ‘What in the Devil are These Sticks?!’ for all you need to know about this twisting, twirling, trickster trio of sticks.
Here’s what Nicky from Canterbury thinks about our devil sticks:
"Easy peasy from ordering to arrival. Beautiful sticks, packaged well. They are used every day by 3 generations - age 7-66 in our whānau who absolutely love the challenge and satisfaction of throwing, tossing and catching ... and the dropping! Cheers all round when the little ones toss and flip. Thanks so much!"
Cheers Nicky - how awesome that the whole whānau enjoys them!
