Chatter Rings look like something you’d find in the Circus or a magic show! These cool metal ring toys feature a set of “washers” that can freely spin and swing around a larger metal ring. Chatter Rings originated in New Zealand in the 1990s, they never completely went away and they are making a comeback again!
Look on youtube and you’ll find a ton of videos to teach Chatter Ring tricks that will amaze and impress your friends and family. It looks easy, but it takes a bit of practice to master the skills, so these ring toys are great for helping kids focus on a task!
To do tricks, set the washer rings spinning with your thumb and then flip the larger metal ring around without preventing the washer rings from spinning. You can pass the Chatter Ring from hand to hand, flip it over or spin it on your arm or hand. It’s fascinating to watch and it’s definitely a toy that holds your attention once you pick it up.
There is a little bit of skill involved in mastering the Chatter Ring so these trick toys are aimed at children ages 8 and up. The Chatter Ring can be a wonderful new hobby and a cool Christmas gift for the older kids in the family!
