Thx for the response! He loves the thing so far. A life saver when I just need to leave the room for a sec or go to work for 5 hours. Keeps him busy enough altleast for him not to care when I leave, initially that is. Haha not sure how he reacts once he realizes I ain't comin back right away...seems pretty safr so far. Ii looks as though it will last a long time, I would certainly suggests trying again.
