I dunno about you but after reading about this yesterday it made me cringe...what are people thinking to go buy their kid one of these things? I would much rather they make creations such as the one below that my Nicholas craftily put together. He even displayed it on his Bionicle Website aswell. Way to go Nicholas :)
Then again, when I was a kid, my Grandparents used to smoke. I used to get their empty packets, put a small hole in the top of the lid. Draw some pictures on small bits of card, put them in the empty cigarette packet. Then, I would use that as my camera, pretend to take pictures of people and open the lid to take out their picture. Playing with the cigarette packets never made me want to smoke, and I don't smoke, so I guess, what I am saying, is that the poker machine may not have an affect on kids having it as a toy...or would it? What do you think? I am still not going to buy my kids one anyway.
