You can tell that summer's here (at last) in the UK. The kids are coming home from school talking about fun things which involve fresh air rather than batteries and plug-in cartridges.
The latest craze in the playground seems to be the Lolo Ball, referred to by my daughter as a 'Space Hopper'. But it's not, the SH was a big ball with horns that you held onto. The Lolo Ball (also called Pogo Ball or even Moon Ball) is something you grip between your ankles. Sounds improbable, but it's great fun for youngsters.
Just be prepared to plaster up some chafed ankles....!
Skipping's also apparently 'in' this year, but hey, when was it not?
