I've also made the ball, turtle, dog, snowflake, propeller, swan and cat.

So what shapes have you made out of it?

I had one and loved it. I could make a cobra, but without playing with it, I don't know what else...

Now THAT'S an old toy. We had a couple at my grandmothers house when I was growing up but I didn't know there were specific shapes to make with them...we just twisted them up and hit each other with them. :ghillie:

Erno Rubick never made anything out of pipe cleaners. It's a geometric puzzle, 24 wedges shaped like right isosceles triangular prisms. The wedges are connected such that they can be twisted, but not separated.

You mean Rorschach tests.

It makes you think outside the box and at different angles. You're heard the riddle, "A woman has an appointment with the bank manager and has to bring her daughter. The daughter is left with the secretary. After they leave the secretary tells a co-worker, 'That little girl is my daughter'. How can this be?"
