    Just wanted to say thanks for posting this one. I had a nice trip down memory lane… When I was a kid (back in the late 60′s) my dad made me a toy wooden “shotgun”. It didn’t fire, wasn’t painted, but it was the best simple design. All the kids on my block were jealous cause they had “store bought” machine guns… no one made a toy shotgun. Thanks dad.

    Good day
    What I am looking for is a very simple toy but yet I got hours of fun from it.
    It is three wooden blocks tied together using some ribbon and glue. Once done properly the blocks seem to fall off each other in a waterfall like manner.
    I can not remember how exactly the ribbons should be connected to the block and wanted to know if anyone had a clue.
