4000 years of history, and still a fabulous pastime. It is fairly difficult to know with precision when the diabolo was invented. Historians however agree that in China, where it was discovered, the game of diabolo has been practiced for more than 4000 years. In China today, like the first ones, diabolos are still made in bamboo, with openings on the side making it whistle while spinning. French and english missionnaries brought these strange objects back to Europe, named by an unknown erudite "Diaballo" (later diabolo). In 1906, a french inventor Gustave Pillipart presented a diabolo made of two metal cups, with the edges protected by rubber. The modern diabolo was invented!
All of our diabolos are sold with a pair of handsticks with rubber grip (AT0003)
