ABC Wednesday: J for Jumbo Jandal
ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt
The word jandal is unique to New Zealand. It is a word formed from Japanese Sandal. The jandal is an icon of New Zealand, and is adopted by the national surf and life guards. We are a small country found of 3 big islands and many small ones. During the summer season, many volunteers work as life guards.
This jumbo inflatable jandal was sold as a fund raiser. A teacher in school and her children are involved and my school took this up to sell to the kids. Two students were pumping up the jandals and I got one of them to hold it up to show how big the jandal is. It is only a toy.
