Description

Conkers is a game traditionally played by children in playgrounds all over Britain in the autumn using the nuts of horse-chestnut trees.

A hole is drilled in a large, hard conker and a piece of string is threaded through it. A large knot at one or both ends of the string secures the conker. The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string: they take turns to strike each other's conker until one breaks. One player lets the conker dangle on the full length of the string while the other player swings their conker and hits.

We used to all look forward for the first fallen conkers and the game completely took over our break times and after school hours, and any walks were invariably undertaken with heads down whilst eyes searched the surrounding ground for a conker in its shell...and we lived in hope of finding the elusive giant conker that would beat all others...

WARNING: do not eat real conkers...they are poisonous. leave them for the squirrels :D

Made from recycled felt and stuffed with polyfil. The "string" is woolen yarn. Completely hand sewn and stuffed.

Remember you get two and each one is slightly different ;)

They will arrive to you wrapped in a traditional stripped paper sweetie bag.
