Swimming noodle for £1 in Poundland

If these are hollow like the ones we bought a few years ago....... when the kids have got bored with them, make a half-cut from one end to the other with a stanley knife (cut the noodle, not the child) so that the noodle can be slipped around various parts of a bike frame / forks to cushion when loaded onto a car bike rack (ones that hang off the rear end). Can do the same with foam pipe lagging from Wickes, but that'll cost you more, and is boring grey

Simple way to stop two or more bikes from rubbing against each other when off on holiday.

Grey is not boring, its distinguished

These are pretty poor but wouldn't expect much for a pound. Ended up paying a little more in decathlon but def worth the money!!!

How long are they?

Been this price for 3 or 4 years now...

Just bought one of these today at local swimming pool for £5

I'll also predict that they'll be this price in poundland next year too.

Today morning purchased one for my kid at poundland Slough. I am satisfied with the quality of the product. Great purchase for £1.

I wouldn't beat your self up over four quid! The ones in Poundland are rubbish. Tiny too! The one you bought at your pool will be significantly superior!

Today morning


This morning?

This morning?


Thinking about it. We say "yesterday", "today" and "tomorrow". We say "yesterday morning" and "tomorrow morning". Logically we should probably say "today morning", but we don't. I know people who speak English as a foreign language who say "today morning". "This morning" is a tricky quirk of English.

I bought this a few years ago after going to Poundland several weeks at a trot to find them. Pls note for any other parents who want the woggles (swim noodles) that swimming schools use, this isn't the same one. Granted the one we got wasn't hollow but they were nearly half the thickness of the one my son uses at swim schools. Still not located any swim school-standard ones to buy in the Chester/ Ellesmere Port area if anyone has seen them (yes, I checked many if not all the local sports gear type shops).

Maybe not much use as a pool noodle but are they a decent fir for tucking under the bed sheet to stop a toddler rolling out?

well i was interested to see how many people commented on the fact they are a £1 .......... in poundland...... lol

Heh, used to do that as a kid to pretend we had a 'proper' BMX. If poundland sell lolly sticks and tinfoil then can do the whole lot for £3! X)

I bought two a couple of years ago but they don't float very much. We took them on holiday and they took too much room in a busy swimming pool, so now ended up in the loft. I may try some of the suggested new uses for those.

You can get the swim school standard noodles from waterbabies they call them woggles, much better quality than the poundland ones

I bought some and chopped them up to make fillers for my boots. They stand up straight now in a cupboard.

Exactly what I was going to say and the reason I have been waiting for them. Will help my boots stand to attention.

Probably still a bit too thin as in they could still roll over them. Probably most useful to stand boots up with!
