Cool Thing of the Month
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.
