'Diabolo" is an ancient and interesting toy and it is the most popular folk game in the northern part of China. With diabolo it is possible to execute a variety of tricks that are easy to learn. When playing diabolo, players, manipulating the sticks, spin the diabolo, which is similar to a yo-yo, on a string and it creates a sound.

Since 1988 Taipei Municipality’s Hongdao Secondary School has promoted three national folk games — "Rope Skipping", "Diabolo" and "Shuttlecock Kicking". The school established a special Physical Education class, which in 2002 was accredited by the Department of Education of the Taipei City Government. Since then the school has cultivated a lot of talents. Taipei City Council supports the development of these games — Rope Skipping, Diabolo and Shuttlecock Kicking, thus popularizing the Taiwanese culture all over the world.
