  • Trick Stick.

    i remember in the late 70's early 80's buying this stick thing, it was as the tiltle says yellow about 2-3 long with a red ball on each end and nylon wire connected to the middle.

    the idea was you could make the stick do tricks .....welll spin round your head and stuff......anyone remember what it was called or even have a clue what im talkin about

                      Trick Stick.

                      anybody have one of these?? mine was a yellow stick with red ends,a clear piece of twine was attached to the stick and there was a ring which went onto your finger,the idea was you would twizzle the stick around and it looked like you were magically making the stick move.....simple things please simple minds eh??:cry:

                              Great photo! A trixstick was top of my wish list back then, probably because they were advertised to the hilt. Never got one though.
