How cool is that?
I made it all by myself, you know.
Forgive me but I've been messing about with a vintage toy I found recently. And great fun it is too.
In the age of complicated electronic toys and games, who would have thought you could get so much pleasure from something as simple as creating sculptures from bright coloured, interlocking, plastic octagons. They do say simple things amuse simple minds.
Funnily enough though, what you could end up with is a very stylish object: a visual, light catching sculpture that would look superb on display in the window area of a modern interior. And your sculpture is, of course, infinitely variable for when you feel like a change.
The toy is Octons by UK manufacturer, Galt Toys. I would guess this version dates from the 1970s.
C'mon, don't pretend you wouldn't like a go too.
(Added 27 June 2013) It looks like Galt Toys are still going strong today - and they're still making a version of Octons: Galt Octons
