Low cost and robust. Spinning plates are ubiquitous for circus workshops, but they’re also great for family gatherings, festivals, camping trips, and anywhere you need a fun game everyone can play.
Like anything, it’s much easier if you have the best tool for the job. These spinning plates have a diameter of 23.5cm, and the stick is a single length measuring 50cm.
This size is about standard. Their weight and rigidity set these plates apart from many cheaper, floppier ones. They weigh 125g and are made from durable (and not floppy) polypropylene.
Some other plates are lighter and not as rigid, making them soft, but the extra weight gives the plates enough momentum to spin easily.
The large rim on the plate's underside and the sloping middle are both expertly engineered to ensure that spinning this plate will be as effortless as possible.
Now you’ve got it spinning, what else can you do?
Loads! A few ideas are below, but the limit to what you can do is your imagination.
