Description

Poi balls are percussive implements used by New Zealand (Maori) women for telling stories, imitating natural sounds and motions for teaching purposes. Long ago they were used by young warriors to help with coordination and reflex training. Originally, poi balls were made of moss wrapped in flax leaves and made very distinctive sounds as they hit a person's wrist or body and arms. Today, our handmade poi balls are made of stuffing and tissue wrapped in plastic, and are primarily used for dancing purposes.

Poi balls are approximately 25 inches long and the ball is 3 to 4 inches around.

Sold as a set. Choose from an assortment of colors including traditional red (red, white and black), traditional blue (blue, white and black), assorted, or custom colors. Custom colors take approximately 1-2 weeks.
