This is how the manufacturer Ballaballa describes itself:

Our history
Artistry, theatre and gift articles- or once upon a time there was ballaballa


It all began in the early 80s at the Cologne Sports University. Three young fellow students are interested in play and movement sports. Having a lot of fun, they also discover the therapeutic and cognitive value of juggling. They especially enjoy the many variations of juggling, such as ball, club or diabolo.

They give courses with fun and passion and also awaken the love of juggling in many other people. The interest is great, so they give courses in the circus, for theatres, educational institutions, social institutions, associations for youth and leisure work as well as many other social institutions. The feedback is positive on all sides and encourages them to take on greater challenges.

In the mid-1980s, in addition to the popular and successful courses, the trio opened one of the first specialist shops for juggling articles in Germany in the heart of Cologne.

With 15 square metres of floor space, the shop in Brüsseler Straße still resembles a shoebox. The popularity of the shop surprised the founders. Their customers quickly learn to appreciate the well-stocked assortment, the high-quality and varied goods and the friendly and expert advice. And they keep coming back.

At the end of the 80s, the three of them move. The new shop is now centrally located at Zülpicher Straße 39. The colourful artistry assortment expands to include sporty and imaginative games as well as balloons, gift and joke articles.

The now very unusual assortment ensures a certain reputation, so that even today a typical customer exclamation is: "You can always find something at ballaballa!"

Due to the now increasingly frequent enquiries from business customers, a wholesale business is set up in the basement. ballaballa GmbH sees the light of day.

The popularity of the selected assortment of games, which combines many positive values such as fun at play, fitness, self-confidence and creativity, rises and rises.

At the beginning of the 90s, the wholesale business moves from the basement of Zülpicher Straße to the nearby Volksgartenstraße 28, thus creating a local separation between wholesale and retail business for the first time. Word of the wide range of products and their consistently good quality has long since spread among resellers.

The trio becomes a duo. The third man pursues his long cherished desire as an ambitious juggler and artist.

At the beginning of the new millennium, the wholesale business moves to Steyler Straße and grows as a company.

A larger warehouse makes it easier to ship the goods. All employees of ballaballa GmbH are deeply rooted in the artistic and theatre community. Thus creative innovations are recognised, promoted and tested at an early stage. This leads to the constant refreshment and improvement of the product range. Promoting quality, the two partners are able to contribute their sports science and pedagogical experience from their studies to the product range.

As a small medium-sized company, ballaballa is now one of the top performers in the industry and the community. The shop is a household name throughout Germany. The wholesaler has managed to enjoy an excellent reputation with retailers and manufacturers all over Europe.

Currently, ballaballa is always working to expand or improve the existing quality in service and new product offerings.
