Don’t know if folks saw this on Make (not very complex, but a nice starter project). It would be a good project with the kids, and then think of mods to the design.
Looks like a more complex version of a plonko game that’s on my to-do list.
Reminds me of this old toy
Clever!! I’ll definitely be making one of these for the nephew!!
There is also the double peg version where the clown or figure “rocks” back and forth as it descends .
Could be made into side by side racing version
Some fun ideas. Man, by to-do list once the Glowforge arrives is going to be HUGE!
