LOL! my sister and i were at the mall not even an hour ago just talking about this! I saw them at the mall a couple of months ago at one of those kiosks things, and thought 'what a waste'. a few weeks ago i went to visit some out of town in laws, they have teenagers, they had tons of them! I couldn't believe it...now i see them everywhere...people will buy them for like $3, even though they're sold at the dollar store! I think the guy that invented them has a kid, and one day they were sitting at a table, he was making shapes with them for his kid, and it just hit him...Lord knows I've made shapes for my son before...never thought of that though...and never thought teenagers would be into it...kids maybe, but then they'd be a choking hazard...
