Chapter One:

    FlexiPolly pursued her polygnosticism like the Hansel and Gretel being lead to Grandma’s house. “Oh!” FlexiPolly exclaimed as she peered out over the millennia of ignorance. “What anachronistic buildings we construct!”
 
    The children, having recently returned from the beach, understood the impermanence of moats and fortifications constructed of sand. And the protectors of the realm sneered back, “Why you insolent child, the universe is constructed on time honored traditions and that alone makes it worth defending.”  (to be continued…)

You get a good sense of where this is going......
 
Get Flexi!  If you are yearning for your very own Flexi or already have a Flexi who is yearning for a mate, we would love to place a shape-changing, ever-morphing, always entertaining Flexi-Blok in your hands. Flexi is available through the store.  Please specify your choice of Flexi blue or Flexi black. Allow 2 weeks for delivery.




Flexi-bloks are also sold unassembled in bulk in a kit that allows the user to construct a radial assembly of 13 icosahedrons which, when fully assembled, form an inimitable and totally sculptural coffee table-worthy cubo-octahedron. The cost is just $99.  The assembly is non intuitive at best. Since it is probably best that I do the assembly I need to charge for it. This is also available through the store.
