What would you have us buy to elicit a smile?

Asked by mazingerz88 (18465 points ) June 21st, 2012

If you could take the time to examine my present avatar closely, it’s a fox made of Lego blocks. Saw an article about this young man who puts together random Lego blocks to create something original. Went to his website and bought one. It always gives me a smile every time I look at it. Not very costly at 28 bucks, I think.

So if you have a small item that may have the same effect, post about it. Big things are ok too. Let’s just have some fun. Thanks.

Well, my small item is very laughable, and I am sure you all would have some fun seeing it, but I am most definitely not going to post pics of it.

@rebbel Tease. Naughty looking popsicles?

I don’t have one of these, but I love the idea.

Bubbles and squirt guns and play doh. Still my 3 fav. little things that lend themselves to tons of fun. I like to sculpt random little faces out of clay for my own amusement.
I have the best time kicking back in my hot tub and squirting the neighbors sheep with my aquazooka squirt guns and then, randomly rewarding them with “strawberries from heaven.” haha

Sheep, the most amusing creatures ever. ” Oooh LOOK, Violet, strawberries are falling from the sky again!” lol

I bought a SU27 plastic model.
Took me 3 days to paint and assemble it and then paint details. It makes me smile when I look at it.

There is this handmade turtle my sister got me from Florida. It is made out of little seashells and has tiny little wire eyeglasses. I named him Todd and I cannot help but smile when I look at this adorable little shell turtle.

I’d like to get a pair of Space Hoppers so the SO and I can have races or play tag on them.

@Ponderer983 I have two. Love them but lost one to my daughter’s dollhouse. :D

I do not want anyone to buy these Tee Pees but whether it elicits a smile or groan is up to you :D
