    Baoding balls, also called Chinese exercise balls, Chinese meditation balls, Chinese medicine balls, and Healthy Balls, are thought to have been created in Baoding, China, during the Ming dynasty.

    Baoding balls are a tool for injury recovery or as an exercise tool to improve manual dexterity and strength. They consist of two or more balls which are rotated to orbit in the hand. The iron-ball system is the greatest of Baoding prefecture's "three treasures." Long throughout history, renowned within China and other countries, this is Baoding prefecture's traditional product. This item of Buddhist martial arts was first produced in the Northern Song Dynasty.

    Whether you wish to explore their use for exercise and meditation, or simply need to complete your samurai sword display, our Baoding balls are a great choice.

    Includes wooden display and gift box with cloth covering, assorted colors and orient stitching designs.

    Beautiful! I like the color and it has a nice marble effect to it. I do wonder however if the markings will begin to rub off after constant use. One ball is a dragon and I believe the other is a pheonix...none-the-less Nice & Affordable. Worth it.

    These are definitely small for Baoding Balls. And I'm asian, that means if you are 6' tall, you gonna feel a little bit awkward using them.

    Just for your info, like traditional Baoding balls, these are hollow and have small balls inside them. So when you rotate/shake them, they jingle like bells.

    The craftsmanship is somewhat cheap, you could see tiny holes, cut marks here and there.

    But what do you expect? These are 6$. Good enough for me, not like I'm gonna need gold crested meditation balls.

    Note - for people that don't know what these are for, try google them. Usually you rotate 2 balls in each palm, left palm counter-clockwise, and right palm clockwise.

    Well second purchase and well I kinda have mixed feeling on this one. The balls came in perfect shape and they are a little heavier than one might think but that's good for me. It even comes with a history and maintenance paper for you that's good. The bad was that the box that came was flimsy and the outer wrapping had strings coming loose. Ok flimsy may not be accurate but it is not a sturdy hinge and lock box. All in all on my first day of having them I used them in my had will I drove. For me, they aren't so much relaxing as they are a workout which is why I got them. They make a great decor piece or if you need to warm-up your hands for something or if you need good hand coordination. So the balls are great 5/5; the box 3/5 so I give it as a whole a 4/5, but hey your only paying 5.99 for it.

    I'm not quite sure exactly what the purpose of these are. I however bought them solely for hand exercise. I'm a guitar player and these work great as a hand exercise for that. they help loosen up your hand muscles and get you warmed up before playing. I would recommend these for musicians especially or anyone who needs to work their hand muscles.
