    One thing I have learned. Never, ever try to assemble toys while sober.

    Far better to get a toy that the kids makes.

    My favorite toys evah were a Kenner construction set (Red plastic girders and beams that snapped together) and a radio shack electricity experiment kit.

    Something where the kid can take the lead, and you can do it together is what the kid will remember 40 years on and be grateful for.

    (My kids loved the Knex stuff. We had fun building kenx solar powered amusement park rides)

    I'm reminded of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer was trying to put together that grill or something similar to it. :lol:

    When I did maintenance at our city park I helped put in a ice rink and assemble kiddie rides, I think that was easier than this. :lo:
