    Me too :) got about 8 I think, they are in a jewellery box upstairs so that I don't accidentally spend them or hand them out as pocket money !! Might have a couple of doubles as well if anyone wants to do swaps at any time?

    If anyone gets a double badminton one I would definatly like to swap, as that is the one I want the most!

    Is there a web page with them all on somewhere? I keep mening to look and then forget when I actually get to a computer!

    strange thing is, I'm not seeing these in my change so much anymore - so I'm wondering if loads have started to "collect" them...

    think I've got about 5 - am still looking out for a guiding one in my change!
