I LOVE rainbows.  I'm not sure why, but they just make me happy somehow whenever I see them!  And you can never have too much happiness, right?!

A few weeks ago I inherited a Dremel; I also succeeded in getting my hubby to show my how to work the scroll saw.  This is the first finished project from my new love of wood working!  (There is also a horse with a skinny neck, but he is just too...ugly...to be shared.  Sorry.  Grin)

A frontal view:


From the side:


You can stack it:




And, of course, you can knock it down and laugh like crazy:


You can even share it with the kids if you absolutely have to:




But my favorite thing to with it is stare at it happily on my messy bookshelf:


The orange is really a lot more orange in person, and I didn't notice the yellow paint on the bottom of the orange piece until just now when I was previewing this...but that's okay, I still love it!!  What do you guys think?

That's a super fun toy. Oh, and I guess it's ok for children, too.  Cheesy

Awesome toy! And a wonderful one for teaching children their colors, too! Plus, the ability to stack the blocks in order to knock them down is fun, too ^_^

Thanks guys!  I was forced to share again tonight, the kids were here and insisted...it was really hard to let go of it (lol) but it turned out to be fun. We stacked it and knocked it down, but eventually things disintegrated to the point where we (I mean THEY) were too tempted to throw the pieces around the living room and knock other things over, so it had to be put up.  One day soon I'll forgive the hubby for taking it away...lol!!  Cheesy
