  1. I had some kind of robot thing that shot our sparks when I was younger. (A long time ago) I thought it was pretty awesome. I think it walked too and shot sparks out of somewhere. Hmm…now I think I remember that I had my brother look into it and it burned his eye. Yeah, I don’t remember that toy much. Mom must’ve grabbed it.
