Can we go back in time?

Here’s something every HW fan wished they had in their younger days…a 3D play carpet with “real” roads and features.

A Canadian company (Luca&Company) is offering these play carpets in 5 different styles and colors.  From their site:

“IVI three dimensional carpets encourage imaginative and creative play. These wonderful carpets are an alternative to today’s fast-paced, technology-based toys. These unique carpets are designed by a Turkish architect and mother of two and were developed to promote independent thinking and a traditional process of discovery through play.”

Whether they promote positive thinking or not, they’re just plain cool for kids.  At around $150 each, they’re a bit on the pricey side, but sure to provide hours of entertainment for kids.  Which of us wouldn’t have loved to have this when we were younger?

Indy club – HW Celebration Dec 14

Our friends at the Indianapolis HW Club (some of you probably know them from Nationals) are holding a show / event this weekend with some exciting events including vendors, downhill racing and sizzler races.

See attached.   I know that at least a few members are aware of this event and may be going up.   It may be possible to carpool.
