Super Saucer Fun at Durham Arts Council

I brought a new toy design to the Campers at the Durham Arts Council, one I knew would be a surefire hit - an easy-to-assemble Flying Saucer that really flies. This was a prototype kit, one that I plan to have on sale, and the campers eagerly helped me test the instructions, playability and customization properties. I could not have expected a better test-flight session!

This particular group was already made of seasoned building pros, having worked hard to master the E-motibot robots from Friday last week. The two piece Flying Saucer turned out to be less of a challenge, but hands raised in the air early on proved that my instructions were more confusing than helpful!

Thankfully, I was able to show the volunteers how to assemble both the saucer and the astronaut. Pretty soon, saucers were flying across the room  or were being decorated to the umpteenth degree. Take a look at some of these impressive builds!

Thanks again to Christina, Sara, all of the Volunteers and the Campers themselves for helping me test this design. Everyone had so much fun and I couldn't be happier!
