Posted:no fair, went out onto the campus field to meet the juggling society and have some help. they turned up late, so while waiting an 11yr old asked to try my poi so i let her, about half hour later, when i really wanted them back, she broke them. the string has broken with no hope of fixing it, as it right where it joins the bean bag. NO FAIR!
lucky i ordered some sock poi earlier today
am going to try some fabric glue, but i doubt it will work

Posted:children are dangerous with poi, occasionally they run off with them and pretend to lose them in rivers so they don't have to give them back. Or give them to some other kid to hide them... or break them....

non-poi children (by which i mean, those not brought up by poi-ists themselves) and poi, do not mix. wait until they're older before you lend them things.

as for fixing them, your best bet would be to undo the stitching make the string a bit shorter and restitch, fabric glue won't cut it methinks...
