I was looking for a birthday present for my 10 year old nephew, he is the boy who has everything. I was struggling to find him a present, my sister told me his latest hobbies was circus tricks, he has the spinning plate set and juggling balls. I came across the mookie diabolo set and thought it would be a great edition to his hobbie.
I bought the mookie diabolo set from amazon for £5.99 and postage was free. You can also buy it from the mookie website for around the same price. I bought the red one but comes in blue or green as well.
It came packaged and ready built, it also come with instructions which explained different tricks and how to preform them. The diabolo is made from robust plastic and looks like two small bowls stuck together base to base. It also comes with the wooden sticks with string attached to them, the sticks look like drumsticks.
The idea is that you can preform trick, it takes a lot of practice but my nephew has only had it for a month and is already successfully preforming tricks. I am very impressed by how quick he has got the hang of it. You can toss the diablo in the air and catch it again on the sting, or slide it side to side without it falling of the string and many more tricks but that's the basics. You can preform yo yo tricks too.
You can easily advance onto more difficult tricks my nephew is now trying to perfect the Backward whip catch, this involves tossing the diabolo into the air and catching it on the string behind your back.
The sticks are the perfect length for children and have a nice smooth finish to them so you do not have to worry about children getting splinters. The diabolo is made from robust plastic and is very hard wearing, it has to be as it gets dropped a lot until you become an expert. I suggest that its played with outdoor as you need plenty of space and height to play with it. The mookie diabolo is perfect for beginners as its lightweight and compact.
My nephew has been practising non stop and has preformed circus shows for the family, he keeps us all entertained and it works on hand to eye co-ordinations, It also got him off his playstation and out in the fresh air. For £5.99 its defentley the best present I have ever bought. I have even had ago myself and its so much fun. I would recommend this for boys or girls aged 6 and above, you wont be disappointed if you buy it.
Summary: Excellent quality.
