Jandals the kiwi word for flip flops or thongs is a combination made in 1957 from Japanese and sandals. It's a cultural icon in New Zealand. Although the word Jandal is an abbreviation of ‘Japanese Sandal’, it is actually a trademark of the Skellerup company – one of the earliest manufacturers of the modern design – and, as such, is rarely used outside New Zealand.
Buzzy Bee is a small pull along child's toy. It was produced in massive numbers in the 1950-80's. Made from wood with small springs for the antennae. When pulled along by the string it would click and the wings would rotate. It was a favourite with generations of New Zealand children and many grandparents still buy one for their mokopuna today. Unfortunately the toy is now manufactured overseas and some parts are now plastic.
