I hit my toes against a table today, and it was painful. The sound was memorable; a loud dull thud. How can I replicate this sound? I decided that my innermost makeup mostly resembles a thick rubber bag filled with marbles and some fluid and that's my idea.
Bag 'o' Bones is a toy. It's a puzzle. It's
a learning tool.
One custom shaped rubber bag
206 marbles of varying shape and composition
One manual in 512 languages
The idea is to drop and lead the marbles into this oddly shaped bag one by one, slowly reconstructing a human skeleton piece by piece, and starting at the tippy toes. Many of the marbles have magnetized iron rods through their diameter to allow for realistic (sort of) joint movement.
After many arduous hours of hard work, the final piece (SKULL) is put in place. A hole at the top allows for water to be poured into the bag to complete the construction. The result is a ghastly realistic replica of the human form in size, weight, mobility and hardness. The rubber bag will be designed to resemble skin texture. Well, to be fair, this replica mostly replicates a limp (dead or sleeping) body.
No more wondering what it would sound like to hit your head on the bedpost.

||just the thought of dropping marbles into place and the potential of them getting stuck. I don't know. I'll remove it if you like.
||It's really wild. I posted that idea in ernest and was eagerly awaiting a critical response. You were able to cut through this waywardness with delicate mercy.
||Now on my lighter step, I think the link is superior.
||for you gumboil, anything.
||<hee hee - that'll get him going>
||Not too sure that marbles are the way to go, but a build-
a-human kit is a great idea for a toy.
