Skateboards. Scooters. Skates. And, yes, pogo sticks too.
Of such things a wild and exciting childhood is made.
Who can forget that wild and fearless feeling the first time you’re riding something that goes faster than you can run? You’re not convinced you can turn it, you’re pretty darn sure you can’t stop it… but you don’t really care. It’s going f-a-a-a-a-st.
I had a big yellow metal scooter with slightly wobbly hard rubber wheels. It was old and battered and bought at a jumble sale, and I love love loved it.
I also, for my 7th birthday, got a pair of blue roller boots with red wheels and a rainbow up the side. Oh yes I did.
I was the 1981 back garden roller queen. *nods*
And I used to go to Roller City every Saturday as a young teen and show off my roller skills (no, I couldn’t go backwards either).
And another jumble sale find was my treasured skateboard (which if I knew where the flipping thing ever got to would actually be worth some money now). I was a pretty solitary and sheltered skateboarder – I had no idea you could do flips and tricks and the like. This was back in the days before t’interwebs, and for me, that skateboard was simply for gliding up and down the street really REALLY fast. Over and over and over again.
But I never did have a pogo stick.
I always coveted Nikki-from-next-door’s though, and so wanted one of my own. Bounce bounce bounce. I’d have totally aced the whole staying up and bouncing thing. Probably.
But now, thanks to those marvellous people at SkateHut.co.uk, I get to give one away to one of you. Oh yes I do!
One just like this:
For ages 5-9, this pogo stick is great for kids who are new to using pogo sticks. With a robust design and non-slip parts, this is sure to provide hours of fun!
