OK, so it's not so much a toy as a very useful tool.
Whaddaya think? It's not done yet, but I needed to use it for Christmas cookies.
I used to keep my full icing bags stored tip-up in coffee cups while I was decorating. One day, my longsuffering hubby demanded to know why I had to use ALL of the coffee cups in the house, and couldn't I leave him just one for his morning coffee? Sadly, I had to say no. I did, however, describe to him exactly what I needed in order to keep my icing bags tidily off of the table without the use of coffee cups. A mere year later, this is what he gave me.
It holds 10 icing bags and it's collapsible; the legs fold down and it stores flat. As I said, this one isn't completely done yet. It needs to be sanded and stained, and he's going to rout the edges. But I really needed to use it.
I'll be sure to post a picture when it's all done. But it worked so well that I had to share.
Oh yes, I close my icing bags by twisting the ends, folding them over, and securing with a small rubber band that I may have stolen from the girl's hair accessory drawer. As long as the rubber band doesn't break (don't ask), there are no leaks.
The first thing Hubby did as I started to use my new icing bag stand was to make a cup of coffee.
