Rain sticks have been around for a really long time. I've seen them my whole life, but I never got one when I was younger.

In the early '90s they started becoming popular again so I said, what the heck, I guess I'll get one. I most recently went through my storage in Wyoming, and found my old rain stick.

I was excited because I remember buying. However it only rains when you turn it up and then back down again for about four seconds. It doesn't serve much of a purpose, but I still like my rain stick.

Did you ever buy one?
