Dubulo - Mini Ebony Edition

The new ebony version of our Mini Dubulo represents an evolution in the development of this Aroundsquare original skill toy. Dubulo is probably our most versatile skill toy, in terms of the depth of possibilities for manipulation, and this model is quite possibly the smoothest playing model we've ever made, and the closest to the original ambitions of the design. The small size is pocket friendly. The ebony material is smooth, weighty, and beautifully finished. The ebony edition comes strung on a new custom made 2mm cotton cord, which is perfect for this setup. The cord is incredibly supple, and the flow feels almost frictionless against the fine-grained ebony wood. These beauties will ship on our new custom 2mm cotton cord, and will include a section of a custom made 1.8mm kevlar cord for anyone just learning and wanting a bit more friction in their rig while they're starting out

The ebony Mini Dubulo will ship with with two additional strings, a carry bag, an info card, and a couple of stickers.


  • Includes two "knuckles" ~27mm in diameter, and two cylindrical grips 11x11mm

General Info on Dubulo

Dubulo is about as simple as a toy can be. It consists of two large balls tethered on a string, with two small beads at either end that serve as grips or counterweights. The design of the toy allows players to integrate elements of play from a number of other skill toys, including yo-yos, poi, and others, as well as totally unique styles of play. The idea is to use the different structural elements in order to create different patterns of motion, isolated tricks, and combinations. You'll find a solid base of tutorials introducing different styles of play, tricks, and tips for getting started on our tutorial playlist.

Dubulo was first developed in 2003, partially in response to trends seen with other toys, including other skill toys, becoming increasingly high tech and complicated. Dubulo was an attempt to get back to a more basic kind of play that was not reliant on precision engineering, and would offer a rewarding experience for beginners learning their first tricks, as well as having the depth to allow advanced players to come up with far more technical moves.

Dubulo allows for both individual tricks and continuous flow which links tricks together. One of the unique features of the toy is that there is rarely a drop or a "reset" required. When a trick is missed, it is relatively easy for players to recover by linking their play with a different move instead.
