Chinese Diabolos..
« on: July 06, 2005, 09:31:16 am »
Right, I found a little shop to buy the diabolos here in China. It was actually just around the corner, and I was looking all over the damn city.

Here are some pictures of what I've got.

A traditional chinese wooden diabolo:



A erally weird traditional half diabolo (which I havent got the hang of yet, its damn hard):



and ofcourse, the original bamboo sticks that come with them all:



Now, its my last day here, but I dont know if you can get them anywhere else apart from here. So, I thought i'd offer you the chance to get one. I have some space in a suitcase we baught, and I can get one of these diabolos for you (there are small ones too) for around 10 quid. Also, you'll have to pay the postage cost, and thats from the UK if you're in america. I'll be happy to get them for you, but its a first come first served basis, as I have limted space. If you do want one, I'll need to know within 4 hours from now. Sorry of the short notice.

thanks

I'd really like one. Or two. Or one of each.

Am I in time?
