Twirling ribbons are also known as Chinese ribbons or gymnastic ribbons. They are wonderful children’s toys as it is very easy to make the ribbon dance in a wave or spiral. They are a good way to keep kids active and develop their hand-eye coordination. However, it does take some skill to avoid tangles and become fluid. Add in some extreme flexibility and ballet influences and twirling ribbons become part of the Olympic sport of rhythmic gymnastics.
These competition spec brightly colored twirling ribbons feature a fiberglass handle and measure 4m (13 feet) long with a swivel attachement.
