A 2 foot tall Spongebob SquarePants? Wow, those games really aren't fair. Even if you win, you lose!

On a related note, I thnk the word "plush" is vulgar. :)

My favorites are the games that make it easy for little kids to win something. Yes, I know that the prizes aren't worth as much as you pay to play, but it sure puts a smile on their face.

Aww man, I absolutely LOVE the bowling ball valley game. Once you zero in on the touch, you can get it just about every time. I usually just let me dogs tear up the prizes.
