Aroundsquare's Hydra Begleri are a fun yet highly adept modern adaptation of the traditional Greek multi-bead Begleri. 

The pairing of delrin and stainless steel in the Mini Hydras allows the player to change the weight distribution of the set to suit their preference for top-heavy play (which makes the beads more nimble, and makes the set play lighter), or bottom heavy play (which makes the set feel more stable, and swing with more momentum). 


(AO2) is about social transformation. We do a lot of different things, guided by the goals of sustainability, democratisation, and social justice. While our work is eclectic, all of it is underpinned by the idea of leveraging creativity and learning for the greater good. In practice, the bulk of our activities are concentrated in the areas of transformative education, monitoring and evaluation, and the design of toys and other materials that support the development of human potential. AO2 is a social enterprise.

Unlike regular businesses which only seek profit, AO2 uses a model that generates profit in addition to furthering social, environmental, and human development goals. We actually have four bottom lines, not just one, and we measure our success against all four. Aroundsquare is proud to be a part of the new economy.

Born in Greece, Begleri is a small skill toy which consists of one or more beads at either end of a string, rope or chain. They can be flipped, twirled or more around fingers to person visually appealing tricks in a similar manner to how playing cards are manipulated during cardistry.

Deriving from from Greek rosary beads (Komboloi) which are often used as worry beads. While komboloi have beads forming a closed circle, begleri beads are threaded on an open strand, usually in a symmetrical formation, with equal weighting at either end. Begleri come in many forms, consisting of semi-precious stone or metal beads.
