The Giant Inflatable Twister

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Stop whatever you’re doing, and call your loved ones right now. Let them know that you’ve just discovered the greatest thing since sliced white bread, and that you’re all about to be taken back to your childhood. You’re about to live all of your wildest ‘90s fantasies…. 

 

Twister is back in action, but this time, it’s bigger and better than ever, taking the iconic children’s game to a whole new level. Not only is the game interactive, but the all new version is actually inflatable, 3D, life size. Yes, you got that right! It’s 15 x 15, and allows players to test their skills more than ever from flexibility to color scheming. 

 

It’s not the most stable game, and it’s kind of bouncy, but that’s what makes it all that more special, and of course – all that much more competitive and challenging! Otherwise, the rules of the game are the same as the classic one, and still has everyone twisting themselves all over each other like some fresh NYC pretzels. 

 

Truth be told, it’s not quite as affordable as the original one, priced at $2000, but the game really has everything you could ever want and more….

 

Perhaps try asking your boss if it could be added to the office?! Or add it to your birthday and Christmas wishlist?  You won’t be let down!
