Posted:If it's for clubbing or a performace and you need them now The easiest thing to do is get 4 glowsticks (preferably all different colours) get some plastic piping from a hardware store which is wide enough to insert the 'hook' part of the glowstick into but not too wide that it falls right through. Cut it down to a length you're comfortable with (for nightclubs I stick to 50cm for lack of space)

I personally also stuff some blu-tack inside each end of the pipe to both hold the hook inside and also adds weight to the ends.

Secure the glowsticks in place with electrical tape wound tightly around the end of the pipe so it holds onto the glowstick.

I would also add a grip for the pipe using either cork grip or heavy-duty gaffer-tape.

Hope that helps if you can't wait for delivery.

Good luck...

Posted:The glow-stick option is probably your best option, SA is not really too good with that sort of stuff. Unless you know someone who is travelling to/from another country and get them to carry it for you. Every time I go back to SA I stock up on UK toys to take over for people because you just dont get it there... sorry I can't be more help.

Posted:Sorry I have been eyeing a glow staff from firetoys.com for a long time. I have not found anything else online in terms of glow staffs, and I have been looking for a long time.

Posted:Though I must say...HOP doesn't charge such a steep price for shipping....why the heck should firetoys.com?

I think it is a bunch of BS when companies do that to people. If one company half way round the world can ship for a fairly decent price why can't all companies?

Sorry for the random ranting but I think it belongs here more than anywhere else!

Hey,

For me lightupandjuggle.com will work great! Shipping is free unless I want it fast ubbrollsmile. But that is because I live in the US. Thanks for the heads up dizzy hug, that is a great site! They have decent prices as well! biggrin
