$2 can buy me happiness

scotto and tim came for a visit last weekend after scott went to an open house at loyalist. so, what did we do while they were here? we hit up the dollar store, of course.

the first thing that caught my eye was a fabulous product called noise putty. it’s pretty brilliant…a little film-sized container filled with goo that apparently makes a noise when you poke your finger into it. of course, i bought some, but note that i haven’t yet tried it because, frankly, i don’t wanna touch it. anyway, he’s what the container sorta looks like:

it’s awful hard to scan a cylinder, i’ve found, but i hope you can make out the funness of the label. any product containing the word “poo” on its label is a must-buy in my books. and no, i will not take it out of its container for a picture, but i will say that it’s purple.

the second item i had to buy was called dinosaur putty. it’s even more brilliant: it’s essentially noise putty with a little plastic dinosaur inside:

clearly some company had a lot of extra putty and toy dinosaurs lying around, and a genius decided that they HAD to go together. again, i haven’t taken it out of its container, but its “instructions” are pretty awesome: they spelled “and” wrong, and they point out that we shouldn’t swallow it. brilliant.

in summary: best $2 i’ve ever spent.
