Is there some unwritten rule that says, "Any toy likely to be given as a birthday present has to have at least ten thousand small pieces, be stickier than whatever holds the tiles onto the space shuttle, require adult supervision and/or a stove, or contain something really foul smelling or a watermelon or cherry-flavored base."?
Is there duct tape involved? Probably.

Most Sacred Use of Duct Tape
Mouse Rescue and Box Taming I tried to rescue a baby mouse from our septic tank well, thankfully the well was dry. I placed the tape rolled on the end of a yard stick and lowered it into the well, carefully touching the "gray duct tape" to the baby mouse and pulling him up slowly to safety. My cat was very impressed with my skill, however, the size of the mouse and the stickiness of the tape was not the best solution for the baby mouse. It took about an hour to cut the wad of tape off his fuzzy little body. Out the my backyard there is a mouse with a small patch of tape protecting it from the rain, bluejays and, of course, my cat. The pictures I have attached are some helpful hints on how to tame wild boxes for the garbage man and the second picture is how to patch the "mouse hole" in the basement. - Kate Hughes
