Default Batons... I know this is weird... where to buy?

Does ANYONE know where they sell twirling batons anymore? A friends child needs one for a school play and when I was a kid you could get these at any toy store, but apparently they are no where to be found now. Any one have any clue?

Go to a music store (one that sells musical instruments not cd's, sorry lol!) That's your best bet because they will have to measure the arm length and cut the metal down to size, then place the rubber fitted ends on it. They are a specialty item. Good luck!

You can google NJ dance and cheer. There is a place lmdancewear.com that came up. It looks like they might have it and they are located in central jersey. If you call a local dance store and they don't have it they could probably refer you to a local place.

You can get one online if the size is right. I am pretty sure you measure from under your armpit to your wrist if I remember correctly. I had one when I was young.
