So that is what has become of that stick figure. I didn't see that
coming . I thought it was just to be a stick figure. Very inventive.

I can see how the kids would be thrilled with it. It empowers them!
Gives them a chance to be creative in a very rich environment.
That is what I saw in Turtle Graphics some years ago. TG is a bit
more advance, but again it gives children a chance to be in control.
When I was a kid, that first opportunity to be in control was sitting
next to my father when he was driving and him letting me take the
wheel--cars had bench seats in those days. Got to go LEFT, RIGHT,
FORWARD, BACK (well maybe not BACK) with an entire car.
And I can't begin to image the work that went into the polish--above
and beyond. Congratulations!
