That’s for more cool than the 60’s/70’s comic “real submarine” ads.

The best thing about those ads…is that they taught a valuable life lesson to children…“advertisers lie to you, don’t trust them”


You and your fancy rockets. My kids come from a family of minimalists.



Indeed, I have written elsewhere in the BBS about my experience with those ads.
I bought the 7 foot tall Frankenstein’s Monster, which turned out to be a two-color picture of Frankenstein’s monster printed on a flimsy plastic film. Most educational dollar I ever spent.


What, no matching outfit?


Adventures in Cardboard

Adventures in Cardboard seeks to re-inspire creative outdoor play with city-bound youth in uniquely play-focused arts workshops.

These are workshops that demand the use of legs and feet as much as hands and head, where artist-instructors seek to unleash a zeal for creative role-playing, and where “wonder” is the preferred path to igniting a passion for design, construction and playful exploration of the natural world.



Minimalist? There’s an entire universe in there.


How do astronauts deal with cockroach eggs anyway?


not that i completely disagree with your sentiment here but looking at the photo i have to ask, isn’t that over 7’ long and couldn’t you probably have fit a second, slightly smaller, child in there with you :wink:


That’s a nice use of cardboardium alloy* but they could have gotten better and grease-free boxes at the liquor store.

Not that college students ever go to liquor stores.

*Used in the construction of The Proud Anselmo.


Greasy smelly pizza boxes in the living room ? cool !
