I don’t know about you but I get on gift-giving ‘themes’. A particular gift proves such a winner that you buy more of the same. Such is the case with Ridley’s House of Novelties and in particular their light-up yo-yo. It’s proved very popular amongst my daughter’s kinder crowd (and now I think half the class have light-up yo-yos!).
So I was excited to see some new additions to the Ridley’s range of old-school games and toys including one of my favourite childhood games, Pick-Up Sticks. Remember the concentration and patience that game required?!
There’s also the school-yard classic, Jacks, and a beautifully boxed set of Dominoes. The Pick-Up Sticks are $12.95, the Jacks are $11.95 and the Dominoes are $19.95. All are available online from Until, along with the entire Ridley’s House of Novelties range. Make sure you check out the Yo-Yo, the Balloon Fun Kit (it is really good fun!) and the never-fail-to-get-a-laugh Whoopee Cushion.
