History of the Coconut Shy

There are pictures and cartoons of fairs (fayres) from the 18th and 19th centuries depicting people throwing sticks at prizes balanced on top of poles and it seems likely that the coconut shy fairground attraction developed from this traditional pastime. Presumably not many prizes are robust enough to withstand being whacked with a stick and so the coconut simply turned out to be the most practical option.
