Traditional Garden Games

We've taken our inspiration from the vintage side stalls from the travelling fairs and created some games that are a little different from the ordinary 4 in a line and Jenga... Play for fun or play to win, it's up to you. An ideal way to keep everyone entertained at your event.

Swanney (Hook a Duck) - V Heavy!

 

Harder than it looks, this staple of travelling fairs is confined to a giant tub. Our little white swans hide a winning star on their bottoms. Exchange a win for applause or a gift, its up to you.

Hoopla - 3ft square

 

This can be made as easy or as hard as you like - our targets stands can even hold small prizes if thats what you want to do.

Bean Bag Toss - CORN HOLE - 2ft

 

Our double ended bean bag toss game is a challange for all ages. With two targets, at least you don't have to keep fetching the bean bags to try again. One has a larger hole and one a smaller hole

Use with either traditional wooden balls or bean bags, this trestle comes with 9 tin targets for you to knock off. You make your own rules, set your distances - its your event!

Coconut Shy (Shie) - 7ft

 

One of the original tests of skill. Impress your partner with your aim and strength. Knock off a coconut to win applause or a prize - either way you're a winner!

This deceptively hard game was the video game of the fairground age. Roll 4 balls to make a winning score. You decide whether give away a prize or just keep the  score!

Brilliantly simple, funny to watch, frustrating to play! Using a ring suspended from a pole, you slide it over the neck of the bottle and lift the bottle into a standing position to win the admiration of your onlookers.

This deceptively hard game is great for all ages. Playing with hardwood balls, you just have to toss the ball into the bucket and get it to stay in...
