Hi Nicol, 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 on them. 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 were accessible. 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.
Cheers!
