Remember these? Wanted to buy some for my grandkids to show them what we did before device screens.

Nothing in our local toy shops so had to go online. These came from China.

Don’t know what the extra five jackstones or the little bouncy ball are for. PS the kids liked them.

It’s interesting to speculate about the possible impact of local conditions and environments on the choice of items used for this game – pebbles, knucklebones, or, as in the case of my industrial city, bits of metal sprigs and offcuts from foundries and engineering works.
