Product Description

Revive "Merry Old England" as pairs of boys and girls (or men and women) stand alternately around the base of the pole, each holding the end of a ribbon. They weave in and around each other, boys going one way and girls going the other and the ribbons are woven together around the pole until the merry-makers meet at the base. The maypole is a 3m ( 10 ft ) tall Aluminium pole ( consisting of two screw together 1.5m lengths ), erected with twelve 4m long coloured ribbons suspended from the top with clip-on metal bolt snaps which can be removed for fewer dancers as required. At the bottom of the pole is a sturdy 48cm x 48cm ( 19" x 19" ) base which can be filled with sand or water ( 45L ) which keeps the pole stable. Often thought of as the "traditional" English/British maypole people (usually school children) perform dances around, weaving the ribbons in and out to create striking patterns.

Few small areas for improvement. No instructions in box so took time to work out which end of each half-pole screws in where. Screws can be cross-threaded quite easily so go slow and careful: this isn't Concorde-level engineering. Ribbons (4 colours RYBG not rainbow as I expected from advert) a bit narrow at 2 cm so plait takes longer to dance than with wider ribbons.
That said, it's a great piece of kit. Sturdy when set up and weighted -- at village fete, it stood up against winds that blew cups of coffee over! Ribbons are tough woven canvas [cotton???] in bright dyes that show up the patterns well. Fits in my car nicely and has been enjoyed by all sorts of people with and without disabilities: a really attractive and accessible activity, and good value for money.

This was light to transport, easy to assemble, easy to fill with water so it was stable and easy to empty of the water again. It dissembles into a pole of two halves and the base so it is easy and not bulky to store. The ribbons are detachable and so you can have as many up to the 12 ribbons as you need. The ribbons are brightly coloured and relatively easy to undo from their arrangement too.

This was great and did exactly the job we wanted.
Robust but pretty and safe to use for 3 year olds and 53 year olds!
