Squigz born here

Visit Read Me a Story (store and more!) in Anacortes and you will discover a display featuring Squigz, a toy created by city resident Scott Baumann. The local inventor has many other products either on the market or in planning stages. Among them is “Chalktrail,” an attachment that makes it possible for kids to draw a chalk line behind their bicycles. Squigz, which was named Best Toy for Kids this year by the American Specialty Toys Retailing Association, features soft, flexible plastic pieces with suction cups on each end. The colorful pieces can be connected to form unique shapes and designs. (Note article by the Anacortes American in this photograph: the source of information for this caption.)

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
