Toothpick and Gumdrop Construction: Cost: $1 for the box of toothpicks and $1 for each boy a giant box of gumdrops SOO FUN!!! Definitely will do this again. Great for Cub Scouts - could use for constellations or for science molecules. Fun for FHE, too! Fun but my kids may eat all the gumdrops!
Parents you will love this little building kit. Why not add some marbles in there too and you have a marble run kit to boot.
Truth be told, I would probably play with this today. I play with the little doorknobs displays at Lowe's. . .
