great stuff Viv i am not going to say i did buy one to play withI bought one from another shop (not sure which one, not Wilko) and it contained two in a set. I was worried about the size of the balls for small children so I changed the balls for ping pong balls. I bought them for my granddaughter, but we grown-ups get as much fun out of them ! Viv
You spelt it correctly rosie:I had a bat-and-ball which mom called a biffbat, the ball was on a piece of rubbery string and it kept breaking. My brother had Jokari, not sure how to spell it, the ball was on a block of wood on the ground and needed two players with wooden bats a little larger than table tennis ones.
I had both while spending time at my aunts farm just outside of Builth Wells. I remember bringing them home on the Midland Red bus. When I got home they disappeared! But I knew how to make them and had a good supply of 1/4” square rubber for the catapult!items that was a def no no with us, was catapults and a bow and arrow, mom would not let us have them.
Catapults were deemed essential when guarding your bonfire heap from marauding gangs. Beats me how no-one got badly hurt. Bows & arrows were too dangerous & no-one i knew could afford a luxurious Diana air pistol.items that was a def no no with us, was catapults and a bow and arrow, mom would not let us have them.
