Flow Ring

This is a slinky-meets-fidget toy for your arm. It’s one of those simple, yet addictive toys for people of any age. Mozi slips over your arms and spins in mesmerizing patterns across it. Roll it from arm to arm or friend to friend. Then, once it’s made its rounds, just fold it flat by turning it counterclockwise between your hands. Its smooth, caterpillar-like movement works best on bare skin. Everyone here at The Grommet got a kick out of playing with Mozi and we’re keeping a few around for fun.

    Hi there! Great looking toy! I have a couple of questions about it.

    First, could playing with it be thought of as light exercise for someone who is sedentary or is it so easy that doesn't require enough movement to benefit muscles in any way?

    Second, I see that the Grommet staff showing it off are all pretty much normal sized. Would someone with a thicker plus sized arm experience any issues with smooth operation?

    Finally, I would love to give this as a gift to a friend who only has one hand, however having seen it transfer from slim hand to slim hand and then up to a fleshier upper arm, I'm worried it might not transfer as easiler from hand to upper arm stump, which is much wider.

    Thanks much!

    P.S. If you ever found a way to include color shifting technology or tiny lights the visuals would be amazing!

    Hi Dee, those are some great questions. I'll address them each individually....

    1) This is one of the missions of our company Fun In Motion Toys to find cool toys that get people moving and grooving. :) I wouldn't be able to show you big scientific studies specific to mozi to make health related claims, but what I can say anecdotally is that it definitely encourages movement.

    The constant raising and lowering of the arms for an extended amount of time while playing with mozi is deceptively active as well as the related dancing around with it while playing that many people do when listening to music. So I would say yes mozi, like other props that are manipulated can promote a level of exercise. It's up to the individual how far they want to take their movement in their own use of mozi.

    2) It could be possible that someone with an exceptionally thick arm might not get the same performance as someone with a more "normal" sized arm as you described it.

    3) Similar to #2 above, depending on the thickness of their upper arm in this case. It's hard to say since it's really dependent on that thickness factor which in most cases is not an issue, but for someone with very thick arms it might be. Normally mozi can roll all the way up to someones shoulder. So if your friend has a more average upper arm then it probably would work.

    Thanks for the suggestions on the different variations. We are definitely at work on some new colors that fit into your ideas for the near future so stay tuned.

    I assume if one of the rings get bent, the Mozi will no longer work correctly (much like a Slinky) ...Is the steel strong/thick enough for child to play with without being easily damaged?

    @brenda

    Another excellent question.

    The mozi is rather sturdy, but you are correct if bent it will effect its function. For younger children you would want to supervise them so it doesn't become part of their game of tug-of-war with their siblings and friends. :)

    But under normal conditions being used as it was intended you should be able to keep mozi working for long time. It's rare to find a defect in the product and we do guarantee our product, but typically when there is an issue it's usually related to user abuse of the product.

    In short, if you play nice with mozi, mozi will play nice with you. :P

    How young a child can play with this? Smallest arm size? Or general age. Thanks

    Hi Sandy,

    mozi has been safety tested for children down to age 6.

    So our recommendations are for ages 6+. Although younger kids do enjoy it, they should be closely supervised so that they don't damage the mozi.
