    OK, now I had to verify that I haven't completely lost it, mentally. So a BF search for "baby calculator" in this sub-forum led me to this:

    and to this:
    So @herder is the one who brought it to my attention, in the Guardians thread. :thumbsup::cool::cool:;)

    Marklin Z Gauge from back when they were first introduced. Model trains are really toys for grownups anyway :)

    Thanks for the pic, FBC. :thumbsup::thumbsup::D I've had a super ball like yours, but the first one I remember was substantially larger than that and having a really hard surface – kind of like a lethal handball! :eek:

    Your cat is exhibiting categorical cat behavior! :rolleyes:

    First time I have seen this thread, kind of cool. The only difference between men and boys are the price of their toys.
