Cigar boxes are a classic “gentleman” juggling-style prop. They are made of wood and generally decorated in bright colours and have felt or grip tape around the edges and sides to provide friction to aid tricks. They are not the most common juggling prop but modern day manipulators are still developing the art and pushing boundaries of what can be done. Isolation, mime and illusion are increasingly being incorporated into cigar box manipulation, often using only one box.
The most common form of cigar box juggling involves three or more boxes. Some basic tricks include quarter and half turns, take outs, lift outs and grip changes. Cigar boxes can also be juggled in the same patterns, like the cascade or shower, as balls, rings and clubs.
Balancing cigar boxes is also a popular style of trick with the world record being a whopping 211 boxes balanced for 9 seconds!
Cigar box juggling is less fluid than regular juggling as the boxes tend to return to the “home” position between each trick. The “home” position is when the boxes are held in a line. This juggling style is often called “stop-start”.
We stock cigar boxes from Henry’s and Mister Babache.
Cigar boxes are so-called because of the similarity in shape to boxes that actually hold cigars. Please note: we do not sell boxes that hold cigars – none of these items open to allow you to store your smoking equipment!
Firetoys have the most helpful staff to speak to. I called Firetoys and the chap talked me through the right weight, stick material, bearings or not and price range that we would need to look at. The diabolos are perfectly right for our children and I really appreciate the help choosing. I would definitely use Firetoys again and highly recommend.
I'm totally satisfied about the item I received and about how the delivery has been handled. The parcel has been properly delivered in a few days. Thanks a lot.
Both items received are excellent and the helpful phone call and following service were second to none. Many thanks!
It came exactly as described, promptly and without excess packaging. Really accurately described! I'm really excited to play with my new toy and exceptionally pleased with the buying and delivery process. Thank you Firetoys for a great purchase experience!!
Your customer service is outstanding, as always. This is why I shop through you and always have done, despite (occasionally) being informed of cheaper outlets, I could never expect the same quality of service from them.
Everything I had hoped for and more! I will definitely buy from you guys again as soon as I get better at juggling. Thanks!
Having experienced this level of customer care for which I am very grateful, I can confidently recommend Firetoys to my colleagues and friends. Many thanks
Amazing and friendly customer service and beautiful great quality equipment. Bought a couple of hoops from here and both are great - when I had a very unlikely issue it was solved straight away
I would definitely recommend Firetoys to anyone and they'll have in me a future customer because of their good will and customer support! Thank you!
Loving your range, and thank you for such a speedy call about my flowlight dilemma!! Got 'em ordered, in the end...good vibrations from your customer service, completely satisfied!
Sick one, boys. Cheers. Super quick delivery and just in time to give to my fella on his birthday. Heartily impressed, will be in touch again without a doubt.
I'm really pleased with my order! It was a fast delivery and my new items are of great quality, very nicely made. I will remain a loyal customer of firetoys!
