In this paper, we introduce the notion of a ringoid, and we obtain left distributive ringoids over a field which are not rings. We introduce several different types of ringoids, and also we discuss on (r, s)-ringoids. Moreover, we discuss geometric observations of the parallelism of vectors in several ringoids.
