Getting Rings Guide

Recommended option:

✅Best option if you’re outside USA.

Get 4 rings of the same size and color, and TAPE them together into pairs. Here’s a store that I recommend:

 

👍Pros:

  • Many color options

  • Can be disconnected and reconnected again

  • Good for practice with small kids who can accidentally disconnect the rings (I’ve hosted classes for over 500 kids during the years. This is my go-to choice)

 

👎Cons:

  • Requires extra tape and assembly

  • Doesn’t look perfectly clean because the tape is visible (if you do just one piece of double-sided tape in-between the rings, it’s less visible, but connection is much weaker)

 

⚠️If you're not in USA and Firetoys doesn't ship to you, try to find a local or online juggling store where you can get regular juggling rings. Get 4 and tape them together into pairs.

How to TAPE RINGS TOGETHER:

Option 1 - simple.

Overlap the rings like you see them in tutorial video. Use a piece of clear tape and put it around 3-4 times.

Option 2 - more stable.

Put a small piece of double-sided tape in-between the rings, hand-press them together for a few seconds. Use a piece of clear tape and put it around 3-4 times.

 

Not recommended options:

❌GLUE RINGS. Plastic rings are very tricky to glue together. It requires special glue and special technique. Most people end up with ruined rings with a big messy spot of the glue that cannot be removed. Not recommended, use tape instead.

 

❌CHEAP RINGS FROM CHINA. I know the price might be attractive, but the rings are often different from the description and pictures. I bought them and tested. Cardboard rings that come warped and break very easily.

 

❌SINGLE-BODY 8-RINGS. I bought this type of rings from many different stores. I wasn’t satisfied by any of them. Sharp edges, bad materials, uncomfortable size, warped (bent unrecoverable shape). If you find any good single body 8-rings, please send me a link, I'll test them and possibly add to this guide as a recommended option.

 

 

 

Sizes:

 

Small (24cm) recommended for kids under 6 years old.

 

👉Medium (32cm) recommended for all beginners. It’s a good size to start and you’ll be able to do most of the tricks.

 

Large (40cm) rings not recommended for anyone under 5’2” feet (158 cm) tall because you’ll be unable to do some tricks.
