Be Prepared Girl Guides

by Swank

‘Are you doing your best? Have you got your movement and music badge?’

Be enthused by the terribly terribly jolly Girl Guide duo ‘Val Keen’ and ‘Babs Eager’. With their jangling kit and ‘be prepared’ PMA (positive mental attitude), Val and Babs engage the public in achieving their SWANK GUIDES badges. Whether 'Ging Gang Goolying', ‘’Fit for Anything’ or simply 'Doing My Best', everyone is a badge winner and enjoys the ridiculous and hilarious badge presentation ceremony.

These strong female characters, inspired by Bunty and the best of British, are adaptable and flexible, easy to understand and everyone gets the game and loves to play. Bespoke SWANK Guide badges can also be made for your theme or event.

Also available is the installation version 'Joyous Jamboree' where, Val and Babs are joined by ‘Wendy Willing’ and ‘Mable.B.Able’. Joyous Jamboree is a fully interactive SWANK Guide camp, complete with bivouacs, flagpoles and of course, the camp fire for good old sing songs. Join the pack in their natural habitat, learn skills you never knew you needed - play silly games and win an exciting range of new badges.
