Frigits were born from a fascination with the machines of Rube Goldberg. From the 1900's to the 1960's, Rube Goldberg - artist, inventor, engineer, author, and sculptor - entertained people of all ages with comic illustrations of off-the-wall devices exhibiting maximum effort to achieve minimum results (Inspiring not only those of his day, but scores of people ever since with his clever, albeit unconventional, thought processes).
Enjoy Frigits from Fat Brain Toys. . . encourage "kid-created" Rube Goldberg devices, teach about the process & results of invention, and take a peek at samples of Goldberg's ingenious illustrated thingamajigs via the web or your home encyclopedia.
