Toy with a twist
Toy inventor Michael Marlin introduces his toy, Slingerzz: The Original Coil Lasso, on Wednesday afternoon to keiki at the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Island Hilo Clubhouse. Using the same coiling action as a vine, Slingerzz can wrap around a target from up to 25 feet away. Marlin says his creation has 15 other uses beyond simply being a toy, varying from a cat toy and luggage marker to a zipper pull and hair tie.
