Bing Bang Boing

http://www.boingboing.net/2008/03/30/1972-ideal-bing-bang.html

I had this toy when I was a little kid! I, um, never actually played with it, though. Well, I did, but not as intended. I recall being more interested in the shape of the launch ramp, the action of detaching and reattaching the ramp base, and the way the geartooth-shaped feet of the Humdrums fit together than in actually trying to make balls bounce through the air. I think it seemed too difficult for me. How are you supposed to know where to put the drums? What if you put a drum in the wrong place and a ball misses it? OMG FAIL! The idea of "trial and error" simply hadn't occurred to me.
