Thread Name: What are Wobble Boards made of?
Subject: RE: What are Wobble Boards made of?
G'day Jim,

The wobbleboard I was given by Rolf Harris (whatever Sunday followed my 14th birthday, in 1959) ... when he appeared at Taronga Zoo, Sydney - to promote his new 'single' with Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport on one side and Nick O'Teen and Al K Hole on the B side ... was thinner than quarter inch ... more like 3/16" or 5/32".

It needed to be thinner as it was a lot smaller than Rolf's painting. Unfortunately I don't have it t0 check up ... I left it behind when I went off the Tasmania in 1965 ... and my little brothers played it to death!

Regards,

Bob Bolton
