We are a team of hungarian jugglers who make flowersticks with our own hands and teach people how to use them. Our goal is to make the most professional and easy to handle juggling stick.
If you’d like to see us at playing, watch our adventure-video about our flowerstick life:
– the story of a group of friends and family –
The idea of making flowersticks was conceived in 2003. A year later, in a hungarian (university) dormitory, a friend and I made 10 flowersticks to sell at a festival.
The modest expectations quickly turned into an unexpected success, and on the first day (01.05.2004) they all found new owners. We had sufficient momentum to continue, and finally – postponing the university immediately for 1 year – we got into the business with full force.
At the beginning we were selling them in a pedestrian street (May-June 2004), then, after persuading some friends, we were selling for months at a lakeside (Lake Balaton) in several cities during the summer season. It was a heroic time, as we were rookies both in the business and in making the flowersticks. 🙂
We lived in a dusty attic and, despite the fact that the towns we sold in were 100 km apart, we had only a motorbike to help us with transport and to get around.
And the sticks were carved, glued, fabricated, using whatever materials (wooden sticks, used tyre tubes rubber, nails, glitter wrapping paper, lots of sticky tapes, and more duct tape) and tools we could find.
The business expanded slowly between 2004 and 2010, as at that time it was not possible to make a living solely from the flowersticks, so in addition to our daytime jobs, we only had time to deal with both production and selling, in our free time.
However, the team was growing nicely, and we found help mainly among friends and family. Around this time, we took part in numerous festivals in Hungary, where – especially the children – loved the game without exception. We were happy to teach anyone, and if they liked it, they could buy our sticks. Luckily, many people loved it ☺
Our Hungarian webshop was launched in 2011, and also in that year, we took part in international events for the first time, where they also loved the sticks. Maybe even more, than back home ☺.
We realized that they love the flowersticks not only in Hungary but everywhere. It’s hardly known outside Hungary, but anyone who tries it for themselves or sees their child’s face while playing with it – wherever they are – will be hooked.
Currently, we mainly present and educate people in Europe, but through our website, all over the world, we are at the service of those interested in the topic. Our international webshop, which delivers to all parts of the world, has been welcoming customers since 2014. We look forward to seeing you with regularly updated online content and constantly improved products and services.
