Check out this cool arm... If you want info on where I got it, please email me or leave your email in the comments section.
(see, I'm easily entertained - this was pretty cool! Kiddos thoughts so also!)
While the arm is *finished*, it's really not. We are struggling with our base, so we are going to try and mount it on a more stable piece of wood, we are having issues with getting the water through the LONG tubing for the 3ml syringe & our fingers aren't matching up to pick something up... So, a little more fine tuning and it will be good to go! Oh, and we need to change out the water and add food coloring - because I think that will make a huge difference!
While this looks fun and like a toy, it is not. This is an educational product that needs to be used with adult supervision. I felt this could probably go without saying, because it was a challenge to put together. I allow my kiddos to do many things on their own, but they would not have been able to assemble this alone.

The entire arm...
We managed to get it to pick up some cotton!
