Not being anxious to buy a niddy noddy right now I checked on line for different ways to make one. The cheapest one I came up with was pvc pipe, simply because my husband dug into his spare parts of plumbing do-dads and had enough to make one. There are @ 87 yards of Falkland 3 ply top there. Someday maybe a bonafide wooden niddy noddy will make its way to me. :) Until then this little fella will suffice.
