right, this might be a bit off topic, and apologies in advance if this is in the wrong place, but we are having a party in Auguat, before we go to New Zealand (for a year) and the theme is everything Kiwi, Im just a bit stuck for fancy dress ideas, all I can think of is Maori, All blacks and Lord of the Rings. Can anyone help with any more ideas? Thanks muchly :)

ok, never heard of Fred Dagg, but just looked him up and that would be easy to do. Any more ideas?

Buzzy Bee -a child's wooden toy in bright red * yellow
Kiwifruit,
Hokey-Pokey ice-cream
Meat pie
Fish'n'chips (or fush'n'chups)
L & P (Lemon and Paeroa) - a fizzy drink, the national drink
V (Vitalise) -an energy drink
Paua shell
Pounamu (greenstone)
Silver fern - national emblem
Swandri - a waterproof hooded coat, usually green
The colour black-The All Blacks (Rugby), The Tall Blacks (Basketball), Black Magic (Yachting)
Jandals - what we call thongs
