This is another toy that brings back memories from my youth... I can't be 100% certain this is the same design, but the toy is so close to one I recall that it makes no difference.

It's a simple toy, but with so much potential fun it doesn't surprise me that my son, and many of his schoolmates, are flipping over them.

I downloaded the media files from the Elephanta website and played them a few times for the little fella, and with a bit of practice he managed to perform quite a few of the tricks. He was overjoyed, and I was impressed...

Available in a range of colours, these little critters are cute, lots of fun, and quite versatile acrobats. At around $6 each, they will make excellent stocking-stuffers, good-kid-time treats, or gifts for younger friends and family at any time of the year.

Overall, very cool toy... but do take care, as they are reasonably sturdy but in some ways quite delicate. Rough handling will cause damage that may or may not be repairable.

This brought back some memories I can tell you (all of them good too Smile Icon).

The simplicity of this toy is what makes it so great, and so much fun.

Once I showed my kids how to use it they were off roaming around the house to see what they could get it to twist and turn and wriggle around, in fact they were so quiet I had to go and find them to make sure they hadn't taken off up the road.

And with it's minimal price this is a great idea for an additional christmas present.

Twisty has been around for a long time, and I don't think it has ever really gone out of fashion. I wanted one as a kid and never got one.

For such a simple toy it is guaranteed to give hours of pleasure to any child - it kept me entertained for hours until my daughter demanded it back. I had another go after she went to bed....

A little practice and anyone can do seamless tricks with Twisty making it appear to be alive and twirling around your fingers, pencils, in a glass or whatever props you have about your person. I would love to have a go with two or three with different lengths of nylon to make it look like Twisty races running around your fingers or whatever.

The joy on their faces will be utterly priceless but I can also guarantee that you won't get a quiet day with this toy around - your little darling will be shouting every few second "Hey daddy - look at this...."

Ah well, you can't have everything....
