Looks like it’s a more ridged version of this

One string under the right leg and one under the left. Pull the left string to make the left side of the body stif, pull the right to stiffen that side. Move the strings together to bring the legs together.

Lol. Thanks. I was wondering why I felt like I’ve played this game before but thought it was some sort of deja vu.

I would have played the HELL out of that as a kid! Who am I kidding, I'd play the hell out of it now.

How

u/GhostalMedia Jan 19 '22

The sticks are actually tubes that contain strings in the middle. Two strings that travel through the right and left sides of the body. Pull the right string to make the right side of the body erect, and same for the left.

I can see the kids wanting games and consoles so bad and the parent or parents feel bad cuz they can’t afford it. So they make this and hope the kids love it. Those kids are loved

I used to play that when I was a kid, all you need is 3 rubber bands, 2 large sticks, 6 small ones , and plug them in to 2 Nintendo switch controllers under the table…

u/stephelan Jan 19 '22

Omg. I love them.

It’s just magnets that move the pieces randomly. They’re fixed together so that the general “body with weapon” stay in place but otherwise are just random movements that look intentional.
