Whit's Boredom Buster
When the Barclay family were going on a family vacation, Whit gave Jimmy the Boredom Buster to use only when Jimmy was "absolutely, without question, no doubt about it, as bored as you've ever been in your life".
The "Boredom Buster" is, according to Jimmy, very difficult to open. As Jimmy described it, it's "kind of like a puzzle, but kind of like a box too." Part of it opened up and turned and another part of it pushed in."
Apparently it took Donna Barclay more than an hour to figure it out, but when she did it lit up, and was very colorful. It then plays the Odyssey theme and Whit's voice comes on and encourages the user to go and do something even more fun.
It was featured on the cover of Album 56.
|“|| Whit's Boredom Buster: Hi kids! I'm John Avery Whittaker and you're holding Whit's boredom buster. You've probably spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out this little contraption huh? Well the time you spent playing with it was time you weren't bored. Neat huh? And it just goes to show you that something as silly as this can be fun if you set your mind to it. Now the boredom buster is going to turn off and you should find something even more fun to do. Bye!
