Simon (Carabiner Edition)

While standing in the check out line of our local Hobby Lobby, I spied this miniature version of Simon hanging in the “impulse buy” section for only $9.99.

I actually had no idea what “carabiner” meant and had to look it up. According to Wikipedia it’s a “metal loop with a sprung gate,” often used with ropes and rock climbing.

I do not think the Carabiner edition of Simon is safety-rated for being used with ropes and/or rock climbing. If anyone gets around to trying it out (and survives), please let us know.
