The trick is simply called "Pom Pom Sticks" You can get versions in different sizes and price ranges. I think Mak Magic manufactures a bunch of them, but you'll have to find a dealer who carries Mak products. Mak doesn't sell directly to the public.

Before you buy this product (or any product for that matter), ask yourself why you want it and how it will add to your show. There are so many items you can buy that, unless something fits into your show and you will use it on a regular basis, you can easily waste a whole bunch of money.

So, why not do this. Read up a little bit about children's entertaining and how to properly routine a show. Once you have the basic theory, create a theoretical show (even if you don't own the props). Put the list away for several weeks while you continue reading some more on entertaining and routining. Come back to your list and revise it. Do this a couple more times until you feel the list really hits the mark for the show you want to perform.

By this time, not only will you have the show routined, but you will also likely have its performance visually rehearsed in your mind. Now go shopping. This approach won't guarantee that you will be happy with each and every effect you buy, but it will greatly reduce the risk of wasting your money on a bad effect, and it will make you shope with a purpose.

You can get these from many dealers, try a search on Google to find the one that suits your budget. You may even pick one up on eBay for a reasonable price!

The Chinese sticks uses two sticks and makes it looks like the tassles are magically linked. From what I can here magic_jhonny looking for 1 stick with four tassles that look like they're linked, but are appeared not to.

I've also heard the Pom Pom sticks called "Do nothing sticks" because they make great attention getters for the street performer. When someone asks, "What are you doing?" you say, "Nothing...but let me show you SOMETHING!" And there you go.
