Flushable toys for the toilet
  (+12, -1)(+12, -1)

Deposit wad end of Flushie into toilet. Drape thin string over edge of bowl, allowing excess string to pile up on floor next to business end of Flushie. Flush. A faint but distinct "AAAiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee" is heard as the Flushie jerks off the floor and swirls down the drain.

A wad of something cheap (like recycled paper mulch, egg carton stuff) attached to a thin floss-like string, when flushed, yanks up the trinket attached to the other end of the string. [see link]

The business end comes in various forms, each with a tiny motion activated sound chip and piezo speaker that screams "AAAiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee" or similar falling-over-the-edge-of-a-cliff yell as it tumbles down the drain.

A Flushy http://www.icehouse...xfords/flushies.jpg

       I think the pulp end will dissolve too quickly for the biz end to make it's noise. then, when the string and biz get flushed and the toilet clogs .....well in these parts, plumbers are mighty hard to get ahold of and expensive when you do.   

       I also don't see how a enough *yank* can be applied to do what you hope. toilets flush rather gently.

       flushing things down the toilet that you shouldn't - is fun.

       #1 son, when he was 2 came up to me with a concerned look. "fishies" and pointing. guess where he'd launched his bathtub toy fishies...

       The inspiration was a wayward piece of floss that somehow got draped over the edge of the toilet seat, one end in the water, one on the floor. Fun to watch it zip over the rim and down the drain. The pulp only needs to last 10 seconds or so, and just has to provide enough drag to pull the lightweight doingley thing along with it.

       If there was a little man on one end of the rope, you could play "rescue" -- flush the man down the toilet, then try to quick-quick-quick grab the other end of the rope and pull him back to safety.

       Having been blamed for a toy-flushing accident (well, I can't say my sister did it accidentally) as a kid and having to participate in the resulting clog clean-up, I don't recommend you encourage young kids to flush things for fun! (I'll remain neutral)

       awesome. it'll need a box with a door or something.
