Diabolo
Jugglers Toy: Sticks,Tricks, Stunts
by Toysmith

The diabolo (commonly misspelled as diablo and mispronounced dia-BO-lo; formerly also known as "the devil on two sticks") is a juggling prop consisting of a spool which is whirled and tossed on a string tied to two sticks held one in each hand. A huge variety of tricks are possible using the sticks, string, and various body parts. Multiple diabolos can be spun on a single string. Diabolos evolved from the Chinese yo-yo, which was originally standardized in the 12th century. Chinese yo-yos have a long thin axle, with disc-shaped wheels, while the western diabolo is more cone-shaped. The diabolo was a favorite toy of physicist James Clerk Maxwell, who was said to be quite good at performing with it. The term "diabolo" was not taken from the Italian word for "devil" or "diavolo"  but was coined by French engineer Gustave Phillipart, who developed the modern diabolo in the early twentieth century, and derived the name from the Greek dia bolo, roughly meaning 'across throw'. Confusion about the provenance of the name may have arisen from the earlier name "the devil on two sticks", although nowadays this often also refers to another circus-based skill toy, the devil stick. This Diabolo comes  with instructions on the back. Makes a fun toy and a great gift!
