    Because Dad will never figure out who did it.

    Too casual… Dad suspects.

    Very interesting machine, only a little bit deceitful!

    Three minutes and eighteen seconds. But you’ll have fun watching the results of someone’s hours of fun setting this up.

    Impressive use of Tinkertoys…

    BEST. “MACHINE.” EVER.
    I’m impressed.

    I tried something like that once.
    the Tinkertoys were too flimsy to hold the bucket, didn’t have enough Lincoln Logs to get enough height, and I couldn’t find the wrench for the Erector Set.

    An appalling lack of rigidity and triangulation.

    This illustrates why I never allowed Tinker Toys in the house!

    What it’s weaknesses DO support are the observations of DEMTRUG, above.

    I suspect you’re right because I can’t see how this machine would work. But what a land of magic it is in Calvin’s head.

    That is one phenomenal machine – definitely worthy of the mind of Calvin!

    It just dawned on me that Calvin was thinking this, not saying it to Dad. Makes more sense now. I also think many of you, including myself, are dating yourselves because you know what Tinkertoys, Lincoln Logs, and Erector sets are. There was also a time not so long ago that Legos were just blocks, and not a bunch of the gobbledegook that they are now.

    I LOVED Mousetrap. One of my favorite games.
