Product Description

Product Description

The BaliYo is a toy that promotes ambidextrous hand/eye coordination and helps develop fine motor skills. BaliYo offers a new concept in pens, made using high-performance materials and manufacturing. It provides safe unlimited creative motion anytime, anywhere, even while sitting. Constructed from three pieces of close-tolerance polymer, the center body is a pressurized ball point pen pivoting between to two parallel arms. The positioning dynamics of the pivots allow you to swing and rotate the pen, changing its speed and force of gravity while flipping and twirling. Refined symmetry with even weight ratio (end-to-end and side-to-side) balances the pen through motion and force. With practice you can learn sophisticated moves, two-handed tricks, quick-flips, spins, aerials and how to manipulate combinations of these. Basic tricks are easy to learn, and an illustrated foldout instruction guide is included. While the BaliYo is fun for all ages, it does have a few small parts and is not for children 5 and under.

This eye-catching, fun-to-use pen toy helps little artists and writers develop ambidextrous hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills. Durably built using three pieces of brightly colored polymer material, the center piece is a standard, pressurized ballpoint pen that pivots between the two attached parallel arms. Swing and pivot the pen into place -- or just all over the place, for fun.

Flip, twirl, and rotate the pen and arms, and the device's symmetry and evenly distributed weight ratio helps you maintain balance and motion. Once you get the swing of things, it's surprisingly addictive. With some practice, you'll soon be performing fancy tricks, aerials, and quick-flips. To help speed up your learning curve, a convenient illustrated instruction guide is also included. Recommended for children ages five and older.

The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.

Broke the second day we had it.
TC
As part of the design, the round metal weights are held in place by a thin strip of plastic that cracks and breaks very easily.
E. Jung
Its a really fun toy, but not that functional as a pen.

I finally got around getting a [Made in the USA] baliyo and it is a pretty cool concept. Fun little thing to play with when your bored. It takes a little time to get the basics down but after that it is all smooth fun. I am not a pro at this but it is pretty fun and I am really enjoying it so far.

The ink is indeed blue and is pretty good so far. As a pen, it writes smooth and clear. It looks like a .7 mm medium pen but I am not super sure about that. The clip is pretty good; nice and springy.

I have read a lot of complaints about it being flimsy but that may be because they bought the Black or Grey ones which are made in China and are made of lower quality materials. From what I have noticed, all of the two-tone [Two color] BaliYo are made in the USA and are made of higher quality materials and would be less flimsy and less fragile then their Chinese counterpart. I own both the USA and China versions and I can say for a fact that there is a significant difference in quality between the two and of course the USA version is overall better. You can check the BaliYo website to make sure in case that I may be incorrect.

If not that, the Baliyo may also be flimsy because well that is what the balisong [Butterfly knife] suppose to be...more or less. If it was too tight, flipping would be a little more difficult. Anyway, it is still flip-able and should not be a big issue.

I am not at all a Balisong/Butterfly knife expert nor a Baliyo expert but these were things that would have been helpful for me when I purchased mine. Bottom line, get the Made in the USA Baliyo [two-tone]. I hope this helps.

The first one we received was cracked on the end where one of the round weights are, with a small loose piece of black plastic in the carton. We returned it and Amazon sent a replacement. Without taking the second one out of the carton (the carton is clear), I immediately noticed a crack in EXACTLY the same place. The crack was about 0.5 mm wide revealing the metal weight through the crack.

We returned the second one for a refund.

This pen is made from lightweight, brittle plastic. The ends with the round weights will take a lot of impact abuse as they whip against each other and the pen body. As part of the design, the round metal weights are held in place by a thin strip of plastic that cracks and breaks very easily. The two that we received were already broken in that area.

I'm a fan of flipping things around and love everything about butterfly knives except that "knife" part, because lets face it, I'm pulling out a pen much more than I'd ever pull out a knife. Yeah, cliches about pens and swords.

So I was a little thrilled to find this product and spent an obsessive few weeks spinning and twirling it. It is not a perfect product, but it is unique and worth the money, but I wish they took the next step and built something like this that was a little more substantial, because there is room for improvement.

Pro:
Fun
Legal
Nice sound
Pretty well constructed.

Con:
Too small. It's about a half-inch too short for my hand.
Too thin. The sides are kind of triangular but very small and it takes a little work to get used to spinning them.
Way too light. I appreciate the weights in the base, but the weight of it all makes it really tricky to do anything too difficult.
Basically worthless as a pen. I mean it is a good pen, but it doesn't lock, so the handle flops down when you go to write with it. Fine for a signature or quick note, but not for extended use and looks odd too.

Buy one. Play with it. Support this cool idea. I hope they make a better version, maybe some good lightweight metal and a way to keep it locked to actually write with.

This pen is great! I just got it an hour ago and i love it! It is pretty light so it is hard to to really cool tricks, but you can do some cool tricks with it. it writes pretty well too. Definitely worth it. this makes a great edition to any pen collection, and makes a great gift for knife collectors and fanatics.

Buggest piece of crap I have ever bought. It deserves 0 stars. I bought this for my son. He is 12, and a very responsible kid. I explained to him that he needs to be easy with this pen and not slam it around because after all it is plastic. He loved this pen, then after 2 days it cracked in 2 places at the plastic seam at the loop holes. He was very disappointed. Once again, China=crap!!! period. and yes, this one is made in china and the other more expensive one that actually lasts is made in the good ol' USA. When will we learn that cheap equals CHEAP. by the time I pay for shipping it will cost me more than this junk pen, so it goes in the trash. we should apply a "junk" or "recycle" tax to everything made in China to help pay for the landfills overload by their products.

this is a fun little toy which kept me entertained at many dull meetings at work after a month or 2 I noticed the plastic around the metal ends was beginning to crack because of the design it's a bit hard to write with adding a latch for the ends so you could fold it back to write would be a nice touch. over all it's a fun toy but a bit spendy if you just need a pen.
