Isn't it funny how circular fads are? For instance, Boneheads. They were quite popular about five or six years ago, and now have come back in again. And remember Scoubidous? I did those when I was a kid, and recently they were back in fashion, but now they are so yesterday, dahlin here in London.

Wonder how long it will take for beyblades to come back. :wacko: Not soon, I hope!

What's the latest fads in your areas?

Boneheads and Scoobydoos? Remind me what they are please. Beyblades I know - g/son has the broken remains of several in his toy box.

He came home Friday with a plaited thing on his keyring, bit like we used to do with wool and a cotton reel. We called it French Knitting. The one he has is done with plastic coated wire I think. What's that called?

That's a Scoubidou Crit! There was a mad craze with them a month or so back, but here in London it's moved on.

Boneheads, well they are plastic things, and to be quite honest, I have no understanding of them whatsoever! :wacko:

We have Scoubidou here but then only being down the road from Crit that is not surprising and the kids seem to wear these rubber bands with writing on around their wrists too, no idea what they are called.

Yeah I kinda wondered if they were scoubidous when I wrote it.

We're just trailing off from Yugi-Oh Cards (just when you thought the Pokemon craze was over they start on Yugi-Oh - another way to extract a small fortune from gullible kids and their equally gullible parents/g.parents Sad

Warhammer figures are another rip off. He's still into them.

Oh yeah, we have the rubber bands also. Apparently they are charity bracelets. Bead bracelets are really big here also.

Alyssa wears one charity bracelet, one bead bracelet she made herself, and one of Bella's bracelets. She wears them on the same wrist, and I must admit, it looks really cool.

Oh yes, ILS, forgot about those things. They were meant to represent donations to various charities and you got different coloured ones according to how much you donated.

Unfortunately you can now just buy them from market traders and I know that money isn't going to charity.

As far as I know Crit those things are called scoobies whether that is the same as scoobydoos I don't know, but my grandkids have been making them too and I am now sporting a pink and blue one hanging from my keyring at their insistance.

I don't know if your boneheads are the same as crazy bones which my kids have found. Little figures all shaped like bones in someway. You are supposed to play a kind of marble game with them.

We also have E-flyers around here, again about 200 different figures to collect, these have a magnet in the back so my fridge door is covered with them.

And the other thing that my kids have found are pokemon Waps, which look like chips from a casino. You can build them up into a tower and I think you are supposed to play the same kind of marble game with them.

I hate the way these companies have about 200 different ones to collect though, although my boys soon go onto something else.
