Posted:So I made my five year old a practise staff from a yard long (little over a metre) dowel rod and duct tape an the ends and as the center grip. Prom and I twirl with practise staves like this and he wanted one, so with parental gusto and the knowledge that I am prolly going to be picking up alot of broken stuff from him, he has one, as of two days ago.Immediately he began a wonderful two handed twirl...he can also finger twirl in both hands, two hand over his head and behind his back. All I do is say...can you do this and he does, without my breaking it down for him!!!!If only I picked things up so quickly.I just had to share I am *sooooooooooooo* proud of him!!!! And he knows it which makes him want to do it more. Non-Https Image Link At this rate by the time he turns 7 he'll be putting Prom and myself to shame with the staff!!! Non-Https Image Link and Non-Https Image Link all at the same time!!! Non-Https Image Link 'Kay...enough sugary gushing! I just had to share!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...

Posted:I agree, i often poi out in the road (a nice quiet road) near my house, and the local kids come and watch alot, they always want a go so i lend them my practice poi's. They pick moves up so quickly, theres one little boy who i love to bits, he is so interested, and .. well lovely ( Non-Https Image Link ) ). But they will often show me moves that i had never even thought of.Pele, you should send a video of your son in to malcolm so he can put it on his 'whats happening in the spinning world' video! Non-Https Image Link he sounds great.Chloehave fun and burn bright.

Posted:That's so cool Pele. I'd love to see him too.Chloe I can relate to your story about kids coming up to you while you're practicing. It's happened to me a few times. One little fella (about 4) was so keen to learn that he asked me if he could take my fluorescent poi home with him. I couldn't really afford to give them to him so I told his dad how they could make poi with a couple of tennis balls and a pair of long socks. A couple of weeks later I saw them in the park, dad reading the paper and the little fella madly spinning!It made me feel all warm and gooey Non-Https Image Link
