    Default I'm not crazy, I swear! (Giant Ant Farm, by Spudkin@Wolfsbane)

    When I was a child, one of my favorite toys was my Uncle Milton's Giant Ant Farm. I have vivid memories of opening the box, filling the farm with sand, ordering my ants and waiting for them to arrive, loading the farm with my precious mail-order ants, watching them build tunnels hour after hour! Sadly, my tiny ant colony had no queen so it was doomed from the beginning. Childhood was not all about fun (i.e., rollerblades, Barbie dating G.I. Joe, Atari Commodore 64, and rainbows), there were sad lessons, too!!

    This may be my kookiest dimension yet. I hope some of you will visit out of curiosity or because of nostalgic feelings about your own childhood Ant Farm. Either way, I sincerely hope you get a kick out of it!

    You are a bit crazy Diva but in the best possible way! Absolutely amazing, hilarious and fun dimension and the ants are so cute and funny. I don't know how you come up with these ideas but they always have me in stitches!

    ROFLMAO... only you, my dear Spud, only you! hahahahahaha (love ya anyway!)

    And I think the ant farm is an American thing. I don't recall mail order ants in Germany. LOLOL

    Now, I did play with my Barbie and Skipper and Ken all the time! Maybe we should make a Barbie dream house! OMG Hailol dim would be perfect, with all that pink hahahaha

    I can't WAIT to check out your ant farm!

    Your Barbie should have dumped Ken for G.I. Joe! Joe could bench press Barbie's pink Corvette and he was so much hotter! Meanwhile, Ken insisted on wearing a jacket with his swim trunks .... Adios, Ken!

    I hope you enjoy my kooky dimension, Agrona!

    You might be crazy, but it's a good crazy.

    I loved this dimension, and I really enjoyed the creative concept as well as the flawless execution (though I would expect nothing less from the original Dimensionerd).

    Kudos on another great piece of work.

    I did enjoy your ant farm, every small detail. The architecture is perfect, the ants are lovable and there's always the humor that makes every Diva build : ) I don't really understand why it would be crazy to build something like this, it's certainly miles more fun than the 100th tavern or something (not that I have anything against taverns )
    Super work, love it!

    OMG DUDE!!!!!!! Holy Building blocks! How many did you use?

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! The best part was the break room and the time cards hahahaha

    Man, that's some amazing imagination and skills you got, Spud! I just love how your mind works and that you always come up with these brilliant, off the wall ideas and builds!

    You rock, my friend!!



    PS: Yea, I don't think my mom would buy me "war" toys... so sadly, my Barbie was stuck with silly Ken! hahaha

    I was a bit worried my Giant Ant Farm was too odd for anybody to appreciate ... I am relieved some of you actually enjoyed it. Thank you for all the kind words! Hopefully, a few of you recalled fond memories of your own childhood Ant Farms and, if you did, my condolences for being old like me!

    This is so great, I really enjoyed checking it out!

    you don't even need to post a screenshot because the picture on the box is exactly what it looks like hehe

    That is so funny that it actually says "Giant ant farm" on the front of it, I figured that was something you added because well, it's a giant ant farm, lol

    Also how awesome would one of those ants be as a companion pet!

    Yea this is just amazing Diva, it's very charming, I was just smiling the whole time I toured. Love the Queen ant and all the workers.. in the workroom! ha ha, it brings back memories of childhood for sure... I never had the ant farm, always wanted one, but somehow I ended up with Sea Monkeys instead, lol

    I loved it! Very cute! We actually got our son an ant farm from the Science Museum store last year for Christmas. So they are still in style.

    The ant in the doorway of the nursery made me think of the movie Sling Blade. "Wtf are you doing with that axe Carl?"
