From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

When we were testing an early prototype, one of our coworkers said it looked like a cute robot spitting out dominoes. So they drew a face on it. From then on, the domino machine had a face!

By the numbers

Domino runs set up for testing: 460

Gears prototyped: 8

Most dominos toppled in a single run: 150!

The train is a marvellous gift! My Grandson is very interested in playing games on the computer but this broke right through and captured his interest!!

A great product we used (5) for adult team building. Good quality and complicated enough to create a few laughs but no punch ups!

This was a great product and my child loved it! Only downside is that there is no floor to keep the dominoes in and it can only can hold a certain amount of dominoes, but otherwise GREAT!
