Yep, I got a bunch of them. Just as a warning they are not the same quality as the ones from Wal Mart (they are not selling them anymore due to a lawsuit). But they still make great toys for suggies!!!!

I got some a the Dollar Tree too, and man do they have a strong odor to them! I haven't used them yet because they have such a strong plastic (?) smell. Anyone else have this problem? I agree, the quality is not nearly as nice as the Wal-mart ones.

I bought a bunch of those too Shelly. And I also havent used them yet because they smell so bad! Alot of mine are bent up and disfigured as well. I really didnt check them first when I bought them. You know how it goes when you find a good deal at the Dollar Tree, you just grab and throw in the cart and laugh about it all the way out the door. LOL

...Then the joke ends up being on you, because they're not the quality that you expected. First the balls we were going haywire over, now the dive sticks. Ah well, live & learn is the motto of the day.

I was wondering what happened that Wal-Mart isn't carrying THEIRS anymore. It makes me sad to think about it, no more Sherbert Bridge wars shakehead I know I've been checking at EVERY Wal-Mart all across the country & came up empty-handed.

I wonder if soaking them in white vinegar or something like that would help remove the smell without damaging the vinyl/plastic? Just a thought...

actually the vinegar does help with the smell so does the top rack in the dishwasher...I always wash my toy making supplies before I use them and that what helped for me...

CVS pharmacy has the plastic dive sticks also. I did not check out the quality of them as I was in a hurry.

They took it off the market because of legal issues. A 2 year old kid was playing in a kiddy pool with them. He jumped in and the diving stick went up his rectum.
