The word poi means "ball on a string"… and in this case, one that has evolved into a beautiful, imaginative, light-based performance art. Each of our two 4" LED poi balls has a control handle kids can use to alternate three different programmed lighting effects. Aside from being challenging, energizing, and generally tons of fun, mastering poi moves can help kids improve coordination, creativity, and self-esteem. Includes replaceable button-cell battery (and up to 150,000 flashes).

Comments about Product: The very first time we used the LED-Lit Poi Balls the string that held the balls to the rope broke. I bought two sets and the same thing happened to the second set the very first time we used them.

one didn't work
Comments about Product: I ordered these poi balls as a Christmas present for my son. When we opened them up, he was very excited, and they are really fun. However, almost immediately, one of the two poi balls stopped working. We took these with us on a trip over New Years, and had the same problem - only one of the balls would light up. The button seems to be malfunctioning on the other. Very disappointing.

Excellent toy for kids or adults
Comments about Product: These are just as I had hoped: bright an easy to turn on and off. They are also soft so practicing doesn't hurt.

Comments about Product: the weight was light enough not to hurt but heavy enough for good rotation.

Comments about Product: Bought these balls for my grandson who is always playing with some type of ball. He's always kicking, throwing, or bouncing something. These poi balls are a bigger challenge for him, and he loves the color changes.

Comments about Product: These were gifts, so I didn't personally get to see them in action, but was told by the grandparents that the girls liked them.

Comments about Product: I am very happy to report they are made of a very soft, almost vinyl like material. I was a little worried about buying this product for my oldest son as I have younger ones and I know with 100% certainty that someone is going to get smacked in the head at least once. I was worried that the balls may be made of a hard material making bumps that much worse, but there was no way to tell for certain from the pictures. I am so glad that they are so soft because I don't think these are going to cause any concussions or black eyes around here. As for the rest of the toy, the lights look wonderful even in a well lit room. The whole ball really glows beautifully. They come with little watch batteries that you can actually replace. I was worried these would be like most of the cheap light up toys you can get that have no way to replace the batteries. All in all, I am very glad I bought these.
