Cool Thing of the Month

Rat Race Toy

The Rat Race
The perfect metaphor for your bleak, meaningless existence. Animate the rat world inside the box by turning the handle. The little white rats climb up and down and run in circles. The rat in the wheel runs and runs... and never gets anywhere. No batteries required; simply turning the handle creates all this action. An amusing toy that delights children while causing massive depression in adults. From Schylling Classic Toys.
