You'r Right Gerbs, Ya gotta love those crayon rockets!

in additions to Ralphco Crayon 10cm banks, there are also smaller banks for just under 3/4" dia to several lengths crayons in 2.6" dia found in toy stores, Toy's R us, and loads in Dollar stores. Or you can alway Scratch build your own in whatever size you'd like.
I personally still like my Micro (Full scale Crayons) and the 5 D12 clustered 4" model below:D

I found a number of crayon banks on Ebay in various sizes all the way up to a 54" tall one.

I was checking out the Ralphco website last night looking
for that 54" crayon.......
Ohhh Boy!!!!
They also have a multitude of other "odd-roc" candidates!
How about: a 36" pencil
a 22" Baby bottle
a 24" Pepsi bottle
a 24" Mountain Dew bottle
a 24" Sam Adams bottle
and the same stuff in soda cans!
and a whole lot of other possibilities.......
I challenge someone to fly that "piggy bank"!!!!!

I plan on giving them a call Monday morning to find out
if these can be purchased individually as they are listed in multiples of 6 or 12.........
I think I saw a thread where one of our creative members
built and flew an entire "box" of crayons!!!!!!!
How about a case of "POP"!!!!!!!!
The Mountain Dew folks could update their ad ........

Unfortunately the bottles and piggies are made from thick heavy flexible plastic, they would need a lot of reinforcement and still will be heavy.... :-(
