free shipping

support makers & artists :: buy direct





We understand the allure of free shipping, and while we can't quite swing free shipping for everything on our site just yet or for orders outside the US, we will begin offering free US shipping for items we sell on Amazon starting with these four popular props:


podpoi

podpoi

Podpoi are the world's favorite glow poi, and universally loved for their feel, functionality and aesthetics. Consciously designed in every aspect, podpoi feature many modes from awesome poi trails to gorgeous mood lighting. Each mode is adjustable in color, speed, brightness or pattern. Micro-USB rechargeable and all-night runtime make it a breeze to keep podpoi running during festivals and travel. Made of silicone – the most non-toxic plastic available – podpoi are super-cushy on impact and virtually indestructible.


crystal poi

crystal poi FS

The new crystal poi - full spectrum are the most lightweight and economical poi set-up, great for users like glowstickers and stringers, who are used to lightweight poi. With the new flowlight-FS, crystal poi pack a lot of modes, features and beauty. Sold as a pair w/ flowleashes, crystal case o-rings, batteries and charger. Option to include flowmass for spinners who like heavier poi.




toroflux

The original toroflux is a mesmerizing kinetic sculpture and an interactive "flow toy" that's like a 4th dimensional "slinky". It is very easy to use, and instantly fun and fascinating for just about everyone. Don't be fooled by imitations - if it's not from Flowtoys or Valett, it's a counterfeit!




PixelWhip

Super popular fiber optic dance whips made by FiberFlies LLC. PixelWhips are enjoyed by performers, dancers, and festival-goers - they're easy to use, and fun to dance with. PixelWhips are sold individually, and come with battery & charger in a fabric drawstring bag.

Amazon. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. We didn't want to sell on the big AZ, but a few incidents occurred that led us to do FBA (fulfillment by Amazon) several years ago.

While we want to provide our customers the convenience of shopping on AZ, and the awesomeness of Prime shipping, selling on AZ has been a mixed experience.

Here are some of our experiences:
  • We have no control over your experience when you order flowtoys from AZ.
  • AZ customers have received heavily used and modified podpoi when they purchase new!
  • People have received outdated products after we've transitioned to new parts.
  • When shipping goes awry, we have no control or ability to contact the shipper, or reship your order.

We don't even have the ability to contact you directly, or send you our email address to help you with troubleshooting!

As a small business in a niche community, your direct purchase goes directly to supporting a community of dedicated flow artists and jugglers creating, making and providing us all with the tools to help us find our flow. (btw - when you buy from Amazon, they take a pretty big cut.)

When you buy direct from flowtoys - you know we'll do cool things like build awesome flowspaces, support flow artists, make art, do good, and create awesome new products for you to play with. You also get more freebies and are assured you'll get the newest updates :)
