Close but no cigar

Just came across this on the internet, and it made me LOL. Can you guess what it is yet?

I know there are websites devoted entirely to similar things, but I thought it would be amusing to start a thread on the theme of “nice try, but…”. Taiwan-related if you wish. I’m sure you’ve all seen some stuff out there that qualifies.

Kids buggy with a couple of (what looks like) aluminium strips that cold have come from the side of a car, attached to empty baked bean cans.

Some parent wanted their kid to feel like their buggy was a supper duper rocket propelled buggy?

Star Wars POD Racer.


Yup. Uncannily accurate, right?

I guess you have to be a certain age to get that one. Can’t believe that was 20 years ago.

God I’m old!
