OK another craze I didn't just imagine! This was THE recess toy of choice at Louis Barrett Elementary . . .
I wore out 3 Lemon Twists in the early 80's. I still have one in storage that is mended with black electrical tape. I'm glad someone else remembers these too!
Where can I buy a lemontwist with the lemon? The ones I see don't have a lemon. That's what so memorable about it.
This was definately a favorite of mine!
A favorite of mine, and I still have it.
I want one! I wish someone would recreat it like the original!
Man, the things that could amuse kids in the 70's! These were all the rage in my neighborhood when I was a kid and I couldn't wait to get one. The novelty wore of pretty quickly though, and I think the lemon fell off & I went back to regular jump rope.
I was the queen at recess! Loved it.
