1. Christmas Juggling Gift Ideas

Yes, Christmas is well on the way. We'll just start this issue with a few ideas for some very special Gift Suggestions.

Of course, you can just browse through our store at
You're always welcome to ask about any of our products as well. Feel Free to Email me at .

But, I want to mention a few New Additions, especially in time for Christmas.

First, an exciting addition for us! Virtual Juggler 3D Computer Game! Ok, It's not exactly juggling, but it is great Fun! We are about the only place so far where you can find this game (besides from the developers.)

100+ levels packed with fun! Play with juggling clubs, balls, eyeballs, coconuts, torches, chickens... (chickens?) Yes you even actually juggle chickens, and LOTS more!!

"Addictive, action packed, arcade style simulation..." bonus power ups, animations, cool stereo sound.

Hilarious VIDEO intermissions that include "World Record Breaking" juggling by Gold Medallist entertainer Jason Garfield. And, it's on sale on our site now for just $12.95. See Virtual Juggler at

And, just a couple more "Gift" Ideas...

This Boxed Set of our 4-panel balls are not only terrific quality balls, their Box is pretty elegant looking. Great Gift! See them at .

And, of course, there is the ever popular Gift Certificate! As of now, it's only available in $25 certificates, but if you would like a different denomination, just write and let us know. It's good for ANY and ALL of our equipment. Order at .

And don't forget to check our Sale Section below!

2. Juggling Friends from Around the World

There have been some Great people from all over the world that we have been writing to. With their permission, here are just a few.

First, from Siberia, is Nikita. He's a student in the 4th course of History Department at Irkutsk State University. He's a Juggler, and also loves Mark Knoppler. As Nikita said, "I'm a biggest fan of Dire Straits and the member of RUSSIAN FAN-CLUB of Mark Knopfler!" He also sent along some Great Artwork he did for Mark Knoppler's birthday. (Writing this, I realize I haven't answered in a while. But, Nikita, I will.)

And, not too long ago, we received this letter:

"My name is Oli, aged 14, and yesterday i searched for a website that would tell me how to juggle. I found yours and printed off the instructions. Today I can now juggle, not amazingly but up to about 10 throws, with 3 balls so i would like to say thankyou for your helpful instructions. So far I have had to juggle with tennis balls as i have no juggling balls and i would be extremely appreciative if you could spare 3 juggling balls to help me to juggle better. From Oli, England"

We did send a couple sets of balls to Oli. He updated us with this:

"hello jim i was very happy when i recieved the juggling balls you sent me. They got to my house on the 6 november. and i have already learned some new tricks. i can now throw the ball under my right or left arms and sometimes under my left leg, and carry on juggling."

Good job Oli, keep us updated with your Juggling!

3. Juggling Clubs - Send your story

This should be an ongoing section, so if you have a Juggling Club that you would like mentioned, let us know. Just send info to .

Coming soon is a Brand New Club at the University of Maine. Watch for more info on them soon.

We've heard from a great educational juggling club at Glenpool Public Schools.

The newest and wildest thing at Glenpool High School (Oklahoma) is JUGGLING!! That's right, Glenpool is juggling with a new club. Students have formed a Juggling Club. The new club meets twice weekly to learn new skills, imporve old skills and teach beginners how to juggle. The idea of a juggling club was introduced by Joey Newsom, Glenpool Mathematics Instructor. Within only a few months, club membership has grown to about 25 students. The purpose of the club is really two fold. First and foremost is to provice the opportunity for students to learn a new and exciting skill. Second, there are tremendous academic benefits to learning to juggle. The most obvious is an increased ability to focus and concentrate. Teachers love it when students can concentrate on their subjects for longer periods of time. Another side benefit of learning to juggle is a student's willingness to attempt new tasks in spite of the fact that "drops" may happen. Newsom often says to his jugglers, "In life, like juggling, drops are going to happen. The most important thing is to focus on the solution, not the fact that the drop happened."

The Glenpool Juggling Club recently participated in the Homecoming Parade (that was fun...riding on a moving trailer on a windy day trying to juggle). Plans are set for future presentations during half-time of several Basketball games as well as an end of year Variety Show. The students have taken the "ball" and gotten it rolling (or should I say juggling). The most impressive thing that has been noticed is the students willingness to try new challenges, take them head on, and work on them relentlessly until they have succeeded. Today, isn't the world looking for people who will do that very thing in the work place. Watch out world, Glenpool has JUGGLERS ready to face any challenge that is "tossed" to them.
