Our little lad loves to go into joke shops - I think he takes after me because when I was his age and older I used to love playing with stink bombs and water bombs etc and I used to laugh my head off playing tricks on friends and family members.
One of his better 'jokes' is to use Itching Pwder. We've used a few different kinds over the past year or so and apart from the Beano Itching Powder, I personally think that the best one you can get (as it makes you itch more!) is Pam's Jokes Itching Powder as it is Extra Strong. You can get it from most good joke shops and it sells at less than one pound and is very good value for money. It might look like you don't get that much in a pack but to be honest you don't actually need to use a lot to get good results.
The box is hard to open as it's one of those cardboard and hard plastic affairs and the powder itself is made of crushed rosehips. Word of warning though is that you don't let under five year old's use this stuff and be very careful if you suffer from sensitive skin because it can cause irritation as I have personally found to my cost - also worse if you use on a part of your body where the skin is more 'delicate' shall we say - ie - if someone puts this down your pants it will hurt like hell!
The joke never gets old with itching powder and this one is brilliant and delivering a great itch. The little lad has used it on both me and his mum and also his grandma. He's put it in my bed and inside my biker tee-shirts and I've scratched like nobody's business. He thinks it's hilarious but I don't mind at all - they are only little for so long so I'm making the most of his pranks.
The box is right when it says this stuff is "worse than a cartload of fleas" - it really is powerful stuff.
Great family fun and really recommended.
