it doesnt explode it fragmentates. the pieces fly in a bunch of different directions. its just a two year old trying to use big persons words.

hey it doesn't even work with toothpicks. they always brake when i'm making it!!!
try soaking them in hot water before putting it together, it makes the wood more flexible
its true
Interesting design but no noticeable explosion.

why should it explode... they're just toothpicks and toothpicks don't explode :D
these don't really "explode" they just send things flying everywhere. but it's still fun
