Did you know the pogo stick was invented on the island of pogo from natives that used bamboo shoots wrapped around with the sap of palm trees as an elastic damper to cause the 'springiness'. Jumping the highest generally meant he was the 'manliest' guy and thus got the best pick of a mate.

They also would decroate them with carvings and paints.

No, sweetie. Just because he told you that it was a pogo stick doesn't mean that it was one.
