Gotta have it – Oddballs

Inspired by festivals this summer and fancy trying slacklining, juggling or other circus skills at home? Check out experts Oddballs!

Have-a-go slacklines have been all over festivals in recent years. If you’ve got a couple of trees in your garden the right distance apart you can rig one up yourself.

Barefoot slackline

Oddballs has slacklines from £24.99. This Barefoot slackline (£39.99) in a choice of three neon colours has grippy patterns and comes with tree protectors and a training line that you can put at head height to grab and steady yourself.

Other balance options include stilts from simple kids’ bucket and string versions up to professional adult ranges. For youngsters, the Junior Pogo and Steady Sticks Stilts set is good value at £35.

LED diablo £9.99

Oddballs is the UK’s oldest juggling supplier and has heaps of options from beanbags, balls, rings and clubs to hats and flaming torches plus DVDs to teach you the basics. There are some fun LED balls and also light up versions of playground favourite diablos.

Impress friends with a bit of plate spinning with a Juggle Dream grooved spinning plate and stick in a choice of colours (£2.99 each.)

Any if you think you’re ready to really show off, try a starter unicycle. This height adjustable 16 inch Trainer Unicycle is a good first buy for children and small adults at £59.99.

Just don’t blame me if your kids run off to join the circus.
