FunSwimShop products used by Jack Black in Gulliver's Travels

Move over 'Daffy Duck', there's a new star in Hollywood

Last weekend I finally took my daughter to see the 20th Century Fox adaptation of Jonathan Swift's classic, Gulliver's Travels. Back in 2009 FunSwimShop supplied the props department at Pinewood Studios with a large selection of swimming equipment, so we were excited to see how many items we could spot on the silver screen.

For those of you who have seen the film, when Jack Black (Lemuel Gulliver) is on the yacht about to be ship wrecked our googly eyed bath duck flies out of the locker when he is rummaging through our buoyancy aids.

Not many people can say their bath duck has rubbed shoulders with a Hollywood star. We have suggested his name to Cancer Research UK for the next range of celebrity designed bath ducks!

Free Swimming with Schweppes

Chances are you're already detoxing your way through January and drinking lots of lovely water.

You may have also taken the plunge and started swimming in it as well in order to shed those Christmas pounds and get fit in 2011.

Once you have invested in a few swim training aids the good news is you won't have to 'spend a penny' in the pool! Well, not if you've been drinking Schweppes Abbey Well water...

The Schwim Free promotion ends on 2nd February 2011, so grab that Schwim cap and enjoy some free swimming before it's too late.

Have a very happy and healthy 2011.
