pogo stick

 a blast from the past.  Walking by the closed charity shop, I saw the pogo stick in the window.  I can't remember the last time I saw one, it must be in the 60s..  I had one as a kid and remember using it a few times.  I did a google search and was shocked how much this model goes for these day, €54.  I'll pass and leave it for some small kid. :)

  2. Hi Bill.

    You had to have a good sense of balance for that.

  4. Oh, I guess there are more dangerous toys, but this one seemed to be one just asking for trouble.

  5. It looks a little more hi-tech than I remember, but I fell off them back then so I'll not be trying them now.

  7. Haha... it must be fun using it but should be dangerous without practice.

  10. Wise decision my friend. No reason to invite an osteo incident.

  11. Not something I enjoyed when visiting someone who had one. Of course just trying it out maybe I wasn't very good at it.

  12. Wise decision to leave the Pogo stick to someone young and agile. Suspect they are always a crash waiting to happen.

  14. The pogo-sticks here in Holland go up to 50 kg. I guess that's not suitable for you ....
