Although you may have never heard of that type of toy before, you have definitely seen them. Check out these cool toys...

He was a cartoonist that kind of invented these inventions. After all of this research we learned that these contraptions are simply a machine that takes multiple complex steps to perform an extremely simple task. In short, a really fun waste of time.
