What People Are Saying

My 7-year-old son and I have appreciated watching and moving to SpinPoi’s videos! It has been a fun way to connect with each other, with lots of laughter as we learn. SpinPoi’s videos are a valuable resource to support both children and adults with strengthening fine and gross motor skills in a creative way.

Our Junior children at LimeHills School love the poi videos. It gets us going every morning and is so much fun. We are so impressed with how our kids are controlling their poi and how everyone is really enjoying the songs. We can’t wait for more!

Kathy Turnbull, LimeHills School

SpinPoi’s waiata (songs) and videos are wonderful for tamariki (children) and people of all ages and abilities. They are valuable resources for promoting Te Ao Māori (the Māori world) and for keeping us active and engaged, especially during these challenging times with the COVID pandemic.
