Remember these?

I have been on a Goodwill kick in today I visited 3 different locations. If you know me, you know that when I get something in my head I can become a little obsessive. I've been on the hunt for old Tupperware--you know the kind our moms had when we were growing up that came in lovely shades of orange and green? They just don't make it like that anymore! Anyway, Max found some Goodwill treasures too. This Lite-Brite has already provided hours of entertainment. He also found a little skateboard that is super cute and "totally" matches his skater boy haircut. (I promise I won't let him hang out in the Wal-mart parking lot with the other skater boys!)

There is something about toys like this that give me the "warm fuzzies" and remind me of when I was a little girl.

I love that they make you think and allow for creativity.

There is, however, a design flaw. When turned the correct way (as pictured) the pegs fall out and, in Max's words, "ruin everything"!

After several wig-out sessions, we overcame this flaw by turning the cube on it's side--worked like a charm!
Thank you, Lite-Brite, for giving me a few hours of peace and quiet!
