Kevlar is the registered trademark  for a para-aramid  synthetic fibre, related. Developed at DuPont in 1965,  this high strength material was first commercially used in the early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires. Typically it is spun into ropes or fabric sheets that can be used as such or as an ingredient in composite material components. Due to its excellent heat resistance, Kevlar is used for fire poi wicks and most Fire toys.

Poi is a performance art employing a ball or balls suspended from a length of flexible material held in the hand and swung in circular patterns. Poi originates from the traditional performing arts of the Māori people of New Zealand, and has since developed many forms enjoyed worldwide as a hobby, exercise, or performance art alongside juggling and other forms of object manipulation.

Staff is a long pole with either Kevlar wick or rubber on the ends. It is thrown and spun for for many reasons such as sport, entertainment, body training and co-ordination.

•Juggling Balls
Juggling balls, or simply balls, are a popular prop used by jugglers, either on their own—usually in sets of three or more—or in combination with other props such as clubs  or rings. A juggling ball refers to a juggling object that is roughly spherical in nature.

•Juggling Rings
Same as balls but with rings.

•Devil sticks
The manipulation of devil sticks (also devilsticks, flower sticks, devil-sticks, rhythm sticks, or juggling sticks) is a form of gyroscopic  juggling  or equilibristic, and is generally considered to be one of the circus arts. Sometimes called devil-sticking, other terms for the activity include twirling, sticking, and stick juggling.

A "set" of devil sticks is made up of three pieces — the baton and two control sticks. Nonetheless, it is often called a "pair of sticks."

The diabolo (commonly misspelled as diablo; formerly also known as "the devil on two sticks") is a juggling prop consisting of a spool which is whirled and tossed on a string tied to two sticks held one in each hand. A huge variety of tricks are possible using the sticks, string, and various body parts. Multiple diabolos can be spun on a single string.

•Juggling Clubs
Juggling clubs, or simply clubs are a prop used by jugglers, as are other props such as balls or rings. A typical club is in the range of 50 cm  long, weighs between 200 and 300 grams, is slim at the "handle" end, and has its centre of balance nearer the wider "body" end. The definition of a club is somewhat ambiguous.

•Fire Whip
Oh yes! A whip on fire.

These are juggling clubs with Kevlar wick at the ends for use with fire juggling.

This is the fuel we use.
