No...A Pogo Stick is a kids toy not a game. Basically it is a long
wooden poll, with a wooden crossbar at the bottom for a kid to put
his/her feet on it, and then there is usually a big spring at the very
bottom of the poll to bounce on. How it works is a person stands on
the Pogo Stick and bounces up and down on it while moving foward,
backwards, left, right, etc. Some Pogo Sticks allow you to do stunts
As for finding them in South Africa I have no idea. I don't live there
so can't say where to find one. In fact, I haven't seen one in years
here in the USA, but that doesn't mean Toys R Us and other such stores
don't carry them. Just haven't looked for one.
As far as pogo sticks and games goes I can't think of any computer
games that are accessible where you get to hop around on a pogo stick.
My son has a Curious George game where George bounces around on a pogo
stick while collecting things, but that's a little kids game. Like
kids ages 3 and over. I don't think that wold be your style even if it
No, in terms of games goes I've heard of Pogo Stick contests like Pogo
Stick races, jumping contests, stunt contests, etc but not any
computer games of that sort that I know of.
