Nifty Toys for Tots

This is an excellent toy for a kid...

I'm amazed that you can't buy a toy like this in the toy shops of the developed world. My cynical side says you can't because there isn't enough "profit" in this kind of toy. Instead of being able to sell some expensive and patented "rocket fuel" this thing runs on water and a simple candle. Cheap. Fun. Appropriately noisy and a wonderful action figure.

No expensive electronics, no batteries needed, no constant trips to the store to buy expensive supplies. There just isn't enough "profit" in this toy for it to make it to the shops in the developed world. Tragic.
