Crazy Critters!

GoGo's Crazy Bones really are getting everywhere - they're now even making an appearance in Junior Magazine (the October issue).

The brief news item quotes one Caroline Sanderson who has a book coming out herself this autumn, entitled Kiss Chase and Conkers. Apparently she's something of a expert on collecting things and GoGo's too.

Get ready for Go, Go Crazy for those Bones!

Go, Go Crazy for those Bones is here! I came down from a morning's writing in my office on Friday to discover a package from my publisher containing ten shiny new copies of my fully revised and updated book on the latest, craziest of crazes.

And very nice it looks too! You can get yours here.

Crazy Bones Dot Com

If you haven't done so already, it's worth checking out the official US Crazy Bones website. Some of the GoGo's mentioned on the website are no longer available in the UK but there's a lot more on there for the dedicated bones fan.

As well as hints and tips and suggestions for games to play with your bones, there are also online games such as the Crazy Bones Bone Hunt (shown below). So why not pop over to to find out more for yourself.

If you've stumbled across this blog and you've heard a little about GoGo's (or at least the name) but you're still not sure what all the fuss is about, then you should follow this link to an eye-opening article on the Telegraph's website.

Get ready to Go Go Crazy!

Things are moving on a-pace with Go, Go Crazy For Those Bones. Today I have had the copy editor's comments through and have also seen mock-ups of the cover.

I can't publish them yet here, as they're not yet final, but it's going to look great. Very funky and a suitably noughties update of the nineties original.

The text has been fully revised and updated as well, so the book should be as hip a read as the new generation of GoGo's are cool.

As soon as I have a publication date I'll post it here.

Until next time...

Bag O' Bones

If you're a GoGo's fan and you've always wondered where to keep them, wonder no more. You can now get hold of a GoGo's drawstring bag, to keep your treasured plastic figurines safe.

The bag comes in a packet like this one.

Inside is the bag itself and a packet of new GoGo's, which of course contains three characters and some stickers.

These two go by the names of Ghost and Ako.

Go Gos Are Go Go!

Eleven years ago, my sixth book, entitled Go Gos Are Go Go! was published. It was all about the latest craze hitting playgrounds and homes around the country - GoGo’s® Crazy Bones®!

For those of you not yet in the know, Go Gos are small plastic figurines which are a range of collectible game pieces. They were all the rage for a couple of years back in the 90s - and now they're back again!

They've been updated and improved for a new generation, so New GoGo’s® Crazy Bones® are hipper, funkier and cooler than ever before.

Well, I'm very pleased to announce that a revised and updated version of the book is going to be published by Icon Books this autumn, this time entitled Go, Go Crazy For Those Bones.

What you'll find in the book is the secret history Go Gos as well as numerous suggestions for games you can play with them.

What you'll find on this blog are updates about the newly revised and updated Go, Go Crazy For Those Bones and other news about the Go Gos craze that's sweeping the nation, from teachers' comments on their educational value to how Go Gos conquered the world.

So, what are you waiting for? Get Go Going!
