New Product | Fishing Rods

Awhile ago a friend suggested that JR add a fishing rod to his wooden toy range. I imagined a dowel with a handle, but in true JR style this is what he comes out of the workshop with. I mean, of course a rod should be bent - kids will be catching monstrous fish with them won't they? Silly me....

So before I get any further down the track, I'd love to share the selected designs with you. Enjoy reading what the child had in mind whe...
