Better than TV

Inspired by several YouTube videos of very cool Rube Goldberg type productions, Kevin purchased a new toy "for Lucas".

Unlike other toys that Kevin has purchased for Lucas (the large metal dumptruck that we ended up giving away because we always feared he would run into us and damage our achilles tendons when we weren't looking, or the praying mantis eggs that after 4 weeks, have yet to hatch) this marble tracking set is very cool.

We are in the small minority of American families who don't watch TV. In fact, we don't even own a TV anymore. This toy gives us all a new fun family activity to participate in. We all take part in setting up the darn thing, setting it in motion, watching, and modifying different parts. Lucas is the self-proclaimed demolition crew, knocking it down, so we can start all over again.

This is our first real production that involved more than just the marble moving along.
Enjoy...more to come. Stay tuned!
