sandy's toy


Here we sit Christmas day in our jammies watching this marvelous little toy my wife recieved in the post from our son Paul. It reminds of the song by John Denver, Marvelous Toy:

It went "zip" when it moved
and "bop" when it stopped
And "whirr" when it stood still
I never knew just what it was
and I guess I never will

It scampers across the floor and whirls around. It sounds like one of those remote control cars I bought the kids when they were youngsters. It has a little robot sound when it starts up and it has lights that blink and it can back up when it runs into something. We sit and watch it for hours and there is even a bonus. According to the literature that came with it, this marvelous little toy vacuums the floor as it travels along. Yes I said vacuums the floor. My wife is absolutely giddy with joy. It is called a Roomba. I will post more when I discover what else it can do. I am hoping it will do windows and cut the grass in the summer. Click here for a video clip (4megs).
