SUPER HIGH STRIKER ~ £195.00
This amazing traditionally hand painted Super High Fairground Striker is so tall it literally feels like it's touching the clouds!

TRADITIONAL 4 BAY JUVENILE SWINGBOATS RIDE ~ £495.00

These boats are powered by the riders themselves, who each have an alternating rope to pull and the speed of the swinging boat can be controlled easily once in rhythm. We're often booked by vintage themed Carnival & Fetes committees, by Schools for science & social history topics and museums wishing to demonstrate Victorian sports and pastimes; what a fun way to learn about these themes it is too!
