Brilliant Balancing Plates
I received this set for my 62nd birthday gift! I was so excited. For years I had told my kids about a toy I had as a child that involved a pointed stick & plastic disc that you balanced on a stick. The whole family had fun playing with it. I can even start on the edge & twirl it fast enough with the stick to make it spin to the middle on it's on! This is how I remember the childhood one being. For the complaint about the sticks try taping it together or using a wooden pointed dowel (which is how the orignal ones came, but for obvious reasons can't be sold now) I was delighted my skill from practicing as a child enabled me to still start twirling it the harder way.

My son is a professional juggler and trying to save money I bought these plates for him, 3 sets.
You get what you pay for and they are going back. The colors are nice but they are hard to spin and hard to stay on plastic stick.
When you need to do a show you can not have faulty equipment.
If you are buying to just have fun and do not have to worry about ruining these when they constantly hit the ground, then they will be fine for you.
