Like a Meccano set, but made out of frozen
gas. Internal resonances keep the struts and
nuts solid and apparently rigid, but in fact,
the whole lot would disappear into a whiff of
smoke if brought within the normal
atmospheric boundaries of pressure and
temperature. Can only be manipulated
space, and thus is suitable for families that
live on space outposts. Needs a hostile-
environ remote tractor unit to operate.

||"Caution: May contain Fluorine"
||How about a remote controlled robot to operate it from Earth? Instructions would have to be sent taking into account how long it took signals to get there and back of course, which would add to the fun.
||"suitable for families that live on space outposts" - yes, we definitely need more space toys!
