4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality
The rubber diablo is good quality and doesn't appear to get damaged no matter what it hits! Both our children (aged 11 and 8) enjoy playing with this and it seems pretty good value.

my son adored this - officially his best (8th) birthday present - & set about mastering tricks via youtube demos.

2.0 out of 5 stars outmoded within a week, 2 May 2012
This review is from: Mr Babache Harlequin Diabolo (Blu/W) Set with Aluminium Diablo Hand Sticks (Toy)
my son adored this - officially his best (8th) birthday present - & set about mastering tricks via youtube demos.

however, it quickly became apparent that this diabolo cannot get up the speeds necessary for the more impressive tricks.

boring technical explanation:
the Mr Babache is a fixed axle diabolo - the whole thing spins.
whereas the superior types use ball-bearings, so diabolo spins but the axle doesn't (this makes basic tricks [like grinds - you'll soon know!] much easier) AND they employ a gearing system, so the diabolo rotates UP TO TWENTY TIMES FASTER/LONGER.

search amazon for 'bearing diabolo' & you'll see they cost the same price. its a no-brainer, as i now know!

within a week, we bought a Cyclone Quartz model - it's the same size (medium) as this Babache, same price, but infinitely superior. AND it makes a cool noise when it spins at the sorts of speed the Babache will never reach. hence why i'm writing this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Begginer, 26 Oct 2008
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mr Babache Harlequin Diabolo (Blu/W) Set with Aluminium Diablo Hand Sticks (Toy)
this is one of the best diablos because: its great for begginers, lasts forever,is complete fun and i cant put it down!
Before I bought it, I kept on playing with my friends one and absolutely loved it! I also like the colour and the great deal I got, and learnt lots of tricks with the free book i got. Also I managed to get the grat metal sticks, so overall I think this is one of the best products out of the diablo range

I bought this diablo as a present for my son. All his friends at school had one, and he was desperate!! I got this particular one, because it was really good value for money. It proved to be a real hit with my son, and he still plays with it, and learns new tricks every day!

I cannot speak highly enough of this supplier. I have ordered two on separate occasions and, both times, the goods arrived the next day. My daughter (12) loves it and spends hours playing with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Its Weight In Gold, 5 Nov 2009

This review is from: Mr Babache Harlequin Diabolo (Blu/W) Set with Aluminium Diablo Hand Sticks (Toy)
My son is having hours of fun with this and has self taught himself so many stunts We are most impressed. The downside is he is getting through string quite quickly but it is well worth it.

This review is from: Mr Babache Harlequin Diabolo (Blu/W) Set with Aluminium Diablo Hand Sticks (Toy)
We chose this for its colour and robust appearance. It has stood up to considerable rough usage and has outlived the fad. A sound purchase. Recommended.
