LOL Those are better than mine. I did make a toy but its a monstrosity and I am sort of embarassed to share it. My fids are all in bed now or I would take a pic of the one I made. Maybe tomorrow but dont laugh too hard at my attempt.

Wow, since so many people are showing interest in doing this again, What if we say the deadline this time is for Sept 5. And lets change it just a little so that there are 2 catagories... One for just toys and one for play gyms and play stands since it's kind of hard to compare a play stand to a toy.

Make the projecsts due by Sept. 5 2008 and they need to have photo's and directions on how it was made and parts list with the entry...how's that?

And who is going to be the judge...Or do we need a judge?

hmm... sounds great.. I love the idea of the seperate categories.. we havn 't got around to making a playstand yet rolleyes.gif

gonna have to do some serious brainstorming as the most creative i've had time for lately is quick lil shredding and foraging toys.. nothing that takes more then five mins lol

Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with!!

Can we start a new topic for it and maybe get it pinned? How about if we have voting by a poll rather than a judge?
