Or I should probably say, Ben meets Sam. Sam is Retired Mountain Man's favorite toy. He bought Sam back in 2002 and has enjoyed many years of terrorizing people with it, including the librarian at the middle school.
Sam has a remote control that moves him forward and backward. His head snaps up just like a cobra attacking and his back end swings around and slithers. His orange eyes light up and he actually is quite scary.
Ben absolutely loved controlling the remote (by standing in a chair) and making him attack daddy or attack mommy or grandpa. He did not like Sam moving toward him though.
There was lots running and squeals of delight as Ben and Sam conquered the world.
