Ask any kid these days what they want for Christmas and you're likely to get an answer that would involve being plugged into a telly. Fair enough, I say. Videogames are a noble pursuit but in years past, letters to Santa were dominated by things like bikes, skateboards and pogo sticks.
It's the last of these that concerns us today. The humble pogo stick has never enjoyed the same level of exposure as its wheely brethren. You get plenty of youtube clips of 'extreme' skate or bike tricks but no extreme pogo.
Not bad, eh? SPROING!
