The fushigi magic gravity ball has got to be one of the coolest things ever offered on late night television. The commercials are amazing. At first you are not even quite sure what you are looking at. Is it a toy or trick? Well, first things first. The fushigi is a little bit of both.
After going completely nuts for this thing I tried to research it online but I could not even remember the silly name. I’m sure a lot of others are having the same problem. Eventually I was able to find very similar products when searching for contact juggling. Contact juggling is an art form that was invented back in the 80’s and has been astonishing people ever since. It is truly a performance art but the advent of the fushigi intends to change that.
After finally figuring out how to order one, I received my Fushigi and got started. It comes with an instructional DVD which has a lot of great info, but I quickly realized that you can do these tricks with an ordinary ball. It will not look as cool and the element of floating will not be present, but once you master the basics you can contact juggle with anything. Having said that, I’m glad I got my fushigi because it is awesome.
Learning how to contact juggle is not hard but it takes lots of patience and a ton of practice. The people in the demonstration videos are experts so don’t think you are gonna open the box and turn in Houdini. But, learning the basic moves is relatively simple and it is thrilling to complete your first trick.
There is not a human alive who isn’t amazed when they see someone using the fushigi gravity ball so do not learn this if you don’t want to be the center of attention. It is amazing how people both young and old are drawn to the product and I would not be surprised if it is the next fad that has people in a rush to get them by Christmas.
To date, you can only order this product online because you will not find fushigi in stores. So if you choose to get one, be sure to give yourself ample time for its arrival. There are definitely other acrylic contact juggling balls out there but the good ones are more than twice the price of Fushigi. In my opinion this product is terrific for beginners and at its current price is a heck of a deal.
