The only 'problem' with the Fushigi ball is that they're effectively marketing a skill- which requires tons of practice- by saying (or at least VERY strongly implying) that the 'magic' results from the product itself.

It's called 'contact juggling' and it's a really cool thing to watch. There's a gal on Youtube who takes an orange and achieves the very same illusion you see done on Fushigi ball commercials.

Maybe it's a bit mean-spirited of me, but I do kind of snicker at the enormous number of people who think that the Fushigi company has overcome the principles of gravity and put it into some magic ball. This thing is a classic, classic example of 'fools and their money..." Anyone who bought this thing truly believing that it somehow magically floated in the air is a colossal sucker; life for them will be a lot more disappointing than their Fushigi letdown.

I suppose it's a fine contact juggling ball, but just understand that you can do the same thing with any solid sphere and when you buy the Fushigi ball, if you're expecting the results to be as-seen-on-tv, you'd better be prepared to invest an awful lot of time and practice in learning the art itself. There is nothing magic about the Fushigi ball and you will not be able to 'make it float' just by buying one.

I bet everyone has said this, but it's just a ball. Since I contact juggle, everyone asks me to buy it cause it'll float better (it defies gravity, etc.) I haven't bought one, but I know people who do. Ok-

It's the worst ball you can buy. It's extremely unstable, pretty fragile (it can break into pieces,) and not to mention it wobbles. Yeah, that's right, it's a ball with a terrible center of gravity. If you roll it on a table, it will probably roll haphazardously before falling off. It's JUST A BALL, and it FAILS AT BEING A BALL. If you don't believe me, look up Fushigi videos about it's durability and quality. Just saying.

It looks amazing. The only problem is the people you see on the TV advertisement have all praticed for countless hours to make this thing work. If you like to juggle then maybe its for you. If you want something that you can take out of the box and make it work be prepared to do alot of pratice. The DVD is good to show you how they make it appear to be floating. But it is just an illusion, maybe a good gift for a magician or circus performer. Probably not a good choice for anyone under the age of 10.

Working in a retail chain store that sells the Fushigi 'Magic Gravity Ball,' I was tasked with learning some of the maneuvers to demonstrate to potential customers.

I was surprised, upon opening our demonstration Ball, to read in the directions that, despite what marketing would suggest, this product is not a toy. It is not intended for children under 12 and includes a lengthy list of warnings including:

-Do not put the Fushigi in the hands of children
-Do not use the Fushigi over tile, stone, hardwood floors, tables, desks, glass (it is quite heavy - also a hindrance in mastering the maneuvers)
-Never use this product outdoors as it can damage your eyes
-Never hold Fushigi anywhere your face
-Do not hold Fushigi against any part of your skin or body

Also, the DVD tutorial is brief with quick demonstrations and not entirely explanatory. Many of the maneuvers presented in the tutorial also require multiple Fushigi Balls, making these techniques worthless with the one Fushigi you purchased.

This is apparently 'contact juggling,' a term I had never heard before. It is a relatively new art form that started in the '80s. The directions say that though the demonstrators in the infomercial have years of experience, with just minutes a day anyone can master this art form. Well, this 27 year old man with hours of time to master it completely failed to effectively master ONE maneuver. Your kids will get bored very, very quickly.

First off it's called contact juggling not fushigi. Contact juggling is a difficult thing to master. (I don't even think I've mastered it yet) Don't expect this so called magic gravity ball to do anything amazing on it's own as the illusion of levitation is created by the juggler not the ball. I did get one of these to mess around with out of curiosity and found it to be a poorly made contact juggling ball. First off it isn't a regular acrylic ball. It has a smaller metal ball inside it. imperfections on the metal ball inside make "tell" marks and completely spoil the illusion. Whats more ball inside the one I have is off center further ruining the illusion when performing an isolation move. Don't be fooled by a company trying to brand and market this performance art for quick profit. If your interested in contact juggling, great! Invest in a real acrylic ball or stage practice ball, But avoid this cheap insult to the art.

This is not a toy, must be purchased for people older than 15 years. Lots of practice to get the best from it. Good as a different kind of amusement and be sure the one that receives it has the patience and interest with things that are not easy to handle but can provide satisfaction when learned.
