Quoits are big this Christmas

MOVE over iPad; quoits are back.

The game of throwing hoops onto a stick has been selling surprisingly well, according to Who What Why co-owner Claire Jorgensen.

“It’s really quite bizarre,” Mrs Jorgensen said.

“Quoits just seem to be flying off the shelves.”

Mrs Jorgensen said many families were moving away from high-tech gadgetry and electronics for youngsters and were looking towards more educational toys and games.

All sorts of interesting and unconventional gifts are proving to be popular this Christmas.

Those looking for a quirky Kris Kringle gift can look to the Vast Interior, who are selling Instant Underpants.

They’re for that special person in your life — the one who needs to carry around a tiny little case containing something that magically turns into underpants when you add water.

For those musically inclined, Mega Music on High Street in Wodonga is having a sale on banjos, with the instruments starting at $299, and music books starting at $10.

The ‘Mini Supoon’ can be found at the Essential Ingredient.

The popular teaspoon measure has a kinked handle, so the spoon doesn’t leave marks when it is placed on surfaces, and the tip of the spoon is made of silicone, making it easy to scrape out those last little bits of jam or apple sauce at Christmas lunch.
