DD wants one for her birthday.

It clips onto your leg, there's a plastic stick with a ball on the end and you swing the ball in a circle around that leg and jump over it with the other leg.

But I can't find one in real life toy shops and don't know what to call it to search online.

Please help!

MaureenMLove - we used to do that - stand against a wall and whack it around us until it got banned for being too dangerous.

I even remember the chant....

D'ya want a cigarette sir?
No Sir
Why Sir?
Because i've got a cold sir
Where d'ya get a cold from?
From the north Pole sir
What 'ya doin there sir?
To catch a Polar Bear sir
T spells Out
..........<continue until you lose an eye>

Sorry about that....grin
