Around our house, branches in the yard are much more than yard waste or detritus. If the dog doesn't get to them first, the kids will gather up branches by the dozens and, more often than not, they become weapons. How convenient to have a sturdy handle to slide on your stick to turn it into a real swashbuckling sword. When we first posted about this idea earlier this summer, the plastic branch holder was not yet for sale. But now, lucky us! You can now purchase it through the designer's site!
Designer Naama Agassi has created this handle, dubbed the "branch holder," for just that purpose. Slip it onto a branch and your stick sword fighting gets kicked up a notch. We're not sure where this idea falls on the safety meter, but the design is sleek and fun. And although it's pricey, the years of use you can get out of it might make it a smart purchase.
