I never imagined it would be edible.

Construction Toy

Proposed is a construction toy realised as a miniature version of the toy used in construction: scaffolding. A scale model of the tube and clamp system, with each tube only a few millimetres in diameter and the clamp bolts threaded M1. A handheld but comically proportioned impact driver can be used to tighten these tiny screws.

       baked - a least as a one third size version. (link)

       Third scale is substantially larger than what I envisioned. The construction toy would be of a scale where Lego mini-figures would not look out of place (M1 bolts are 1mm in diameter).   

       One application of the toy scaffolding could be to augment Lego buildings during their construction.

       I think the gag here was precise scale rendering right down to tiny, “comically proportioned” impossible to use parts. Playskool and Lego don't go for scale accuracy, and safety training models can be assembled with normal tools.   

       So - sorta baked but bun anyhow for humorous intent.
