Copycat Golfcart Idea from Casey

We own the Fisher Price Golf Set. It's fun and my boy's love it. But it was not manufactured very well, and I'm not exactly sure how it made it past the test groups because of a major flaw with its frame. The golf clubs won't stay in. (see below.) Umm, hello, I'm not sure anyone would buy a golf cart that didn't exactly hold golf clubs!!!
After a few days of owning this toy and some irritated little golfers, I just put some masking tape around the bottom and for the most part the golf clubs would stay in, but eventually after wear and tear and too many little golfing excursions the tape came off. But my friend Casey, came up with a way to keep those little clubs in, Velcro! Genius.

So this morning I got out my Velcro, adhered it to the tips of the clubs and the bottom of the cart and wha-la every thing works as it should.

The Velcro wasn't staying as well as it should (see below) so I got out my handy-dandy hot glue gun and hot glued all of the respective pieces together. So now this gimmick should really work even when the golf clubs are tugged out of there home.



It's the little things that make a rainy day still feel like an accomplished day.

And that my friends, was my "efficient" task for today.

ha.

Where would we be without velcro? How would my daughter keep her shoes on? How would my lightweight pictures stay on the wall? And how would the pictures on my picture ledge stay put? So many uses, so little time!

Very clever. That would have annoyed me too and I don't know if I would have been as discreet - think duct tape :)
