Our Dealworld flower juggling sticks are designed by a player first started playing and selling flower sticks at theme parks in 1996. They were professionally manufactured in toy factory. The main stick is beautifully wrapped with design strips, and protected with clear silicon tube, very durable.e. 'helicopter'. We pioneered using coloured rubber for the flowers. The two hand sticks are also in clear silicon tubes which provides very nice grip, making it easier for player to do spinning because of the friction from the material. Player will have no dark hands from black rubber residue, he can easily clean the sticks (important for toy) and he will be able to do tricks with this set of sticks. Regular wrapping strip on the main stick without the protection of silicon tube will wear off very easily by the constant hitting of hand sticks during playing. And the raw wood will expose in the middle of the stick and become very slippery. The sticks will be difficult for player to do spinning and believe it or not they look very bad. Our silicon tube provides that necessary protection. We are sure that experienced players will see the designed sticks are different. The improvement on the sticks is from player with hands on playing experience and manufactured in toy factory for us. They are not amateur made products. However, the four black caps at the end of hand sticks may come off due to difficulty of bonding silicon and wood, could affect the appearance, but will not affect the ability of playing the sticks. We are selling them at very good price, please do not leave negative feedback for this issue, trying to state this unperfection issue upfront. Thanks. Five wrapping designs available at Dealworld. No instruction in packing. Price is for one set.
