Chapter one


‘Roll up, Roll up, the inventors fair is here'.

‘Come see the miraculous, the incredible, the fan-tab-u-lous' announced the orator from his tiny wooden podium. He then leans forward and whispers to you ‘I know that fantabulous is not a word, but this is an inventors fair and if you can't invent a few words here and there, then what's the point, ay!' His moustache twitches in excitement which seems to accentuate the shiny baldness of his head.

‘Buy your tickets here' he announces to the crowd gesticulating in a strange flourish of twisting wrists towards the booth and turnstile.

‘Now good people, ladies and gentlemen, have you been acquainted with the astounding Mr Arac, who will be demonstrating his incredible Home Spider Dentistry Kit or what about Dr Faustus and his amazing security device, The Magic Void'. He pauses for effect before he continues ‘It's a new type of security safe, soon to be available throughout the land (patent pending), its super light construction unlike those cumbersome iron boxes in banks. But best of all it is designed to lock away all your most valuable possessions inside a surprising quirk of space; time itself! It's the craziest thing, seeing your precious stuff just vanish into thin air and then be extracted once more. Go see him, he's at stall number 253. But then he mutters to you under his breath ‘I suggest you don't let him Magic Void your pet, last one came back a little squishy and the boys keeper and mum were quite disgruntled.'

Suddenly you have a ticket and are through the barrier, and there before you is stall - upon stall - upon stall, this is the inventors fair. Tents and turrets are pitched everywhere, flags and banners billow as smartly suited visitors amble between the stalls. Noises fizz from displays where plumes of pink and purple smoke waft from curious contraptions to the left, right and just about everywhere.

A voting paper is then thrust into your hand and you notice it has six spaces for nominations, this is what you need to fill in and post before you exit.

You glance back and see the sun glint off the Orators shiny head as he disappears back through the gates. His wrists spin above his glistening head as he funnels and encourages more paying visitors through the turnstiles.
Go to the middle of the park.
Chapter two


As you approach the stall you that it is a giant circus tent, just a normal, giant bog-standard circus tent. But when you are walking in you realise that the stands, chairs and the stage all look as though they are made frome dark matter, as though it is made of galaxies, stars and planets all merged into one. Then suddenly the technician starts to make his speech
"Welcome to my multiverse teleporter invention!" He starts. But you ignore the rest of his speech while day-dreaming. After waking up, you realise he has picked a volunteer... YOU!
No matter (Haha matter joke.... Get it?) how much you protest he insists that you try it out. You are then put into a dark looking container with many buttons and switches, you know nothing about these buttons so the technician tells you exactly what to do and how to do it. "Red button to go Green button to come back get it?"
"Yes!" You reply you already know how to make a multiverse you have made around three already you hit a button on the side of the container and you feel flustered as there is a big thud when you hit the ground. When you regain your balance you step out of the container when you do you are amazed at the sight of the future "It's very... white?" You say to yourself. Everything is automated auto-ovens, auto-sleeping and even auto-excersise to your surprise you find the future technician. His name is JOHNN CEEENA (music plays) and he has also bring his best friend Bill GatesV2 also immortality has been invented by another technician in the fair hence he saw HIMSELF as well!
You suddenly get really scared, if you startle yourself you could create an altar in a space vacuum you rush to the black container and press the green button you are teleported back to the circus tent the is a massive round of applause as you exit the container then suddenly the technician asks you for another go, without a thought you turn and RUN!

Go to the bench in the corner near the road, but stay in the park.

The Fantasiser

As you approach the stall you see giant bright signs pointing to a hut made of plastic the signs say BE FANTASISED!!!!You walk up your eyes hurt with the brightness of the bulbs and you hear a consistent hum the professor of madness gives you a try of the Fantasiser.

Reality turns into fiction your inside pad-man everyone can see you on the screen they look amused.

You can smell ectoplasm from the ghosts.

Go to the middle flower bed then take the first path on the right to the Cherry trees.
Chapter five

The Shrinkifier

As you approach the stall you see a small simple house with a red door and a shiny brass handle. You open the door, there are ribbons dangling down from the ceiling. Their is a Microchip on the table in the big room. You inject yourself with it and became small after just 5 seconds. You scream for help but no one could hear you because you were so small. But thankfully you came back to normal size 10 minutes later.

Then the most incredible thing happens you just realized this could come in handy for something you could slip out of easily.

You climb the stairs and see a ball on the floor which you can't resist giving a kick, unfortunately the ball shoots over to the chimney and gets stuck. You decided to climb up to get the ball, but suddenly find yourself wedged in the chimney.

You thought back to the little chip you injected yourself with, and the experiences you went through. So you decided to shrink again. You fell right down the chimney
and onto the floor with the ball as protection. After 5 mins you came back to normal size and said to yourself i knew the shrinkifier would come in handy.

Better make a vote before you get to the next stall

Go to the small kids play equipment.
Chapter six

The portal to the multiverse

As you approach you see a portal under a banner which says welcome to the multiverse so you step closer.

Suddenly you feel the portal pull you in, your five senses get dulled as you are sucked into the multiverse machine. On the other side you see Minecraft Craft blocks everywhere, master swords from the Legend of Zelda game.

This is crazy you think to yourself, I am in side the multiverse and there are so many things, and lots of them from different games I've played. Over to the left was Bill Cipher made out of stone, straight ahead was the fourth dimension of time and to the right was the Haribo Bear.

This is a mad place, so you turn around quickly and go back through the portal.

What do you think of this invention, write it on your sheets before you go on.

Go to the big swings.
Chapter seven


You pass quite a few exhibits in the next hour, one called ‘the Big Ear' which appeared to be exactly what it said and would help you listen over great distances. They obviously hadn't invented the telephone yet!

Another stall was called the thinking machine, which listened and thought but little more. The inventor seemed embarrassed as he'd yet to invent the answer machine, which even he admitted would be far more useful.

Then finally you come across the Boot-o-matic an incredible machine which was lacing up boots on volunteers left right and centre. You sit in the chair yourself with your shoe laces undone and the tiny little machine ties them up in a flash. You are so impressed that you undo them quickly again and the Boot-O-Matic has them re done, just like that.

Of all the inventions that would save some time in the morning perhaps this was one which would in fact be truly useful. But then you notice the person getting into the chair after you with Velcro straps on his shoes and a cheeky grin on his face, I wonder how the Boot-O-Matic will deal with that!

So make a mark on your voting slip, have a chat between each other as to what you think.

Now over to the exit to meet the Orator and hand in your voting slips.
Go back to the beginning.
Chapter eight


The Orator approaches, bald head glistening in the sun.

‘Place your sheets in the box and we'll see who the Inventor Supremo is in the 117th inventors fair'.

Is there one invention which is the best in your opinion? Have a discussion now and see which you think is the most impressive, when you have decided then please read on.

‘Good good.' Says the orator as you post your sheets, but suddenly there is a huge sound from the middle of the field, you look over and see a jet of blue flame snatch up into the air. A BOOM follows which is so loud you feel it in your chest, and the orators mouth drops open aghast at what is unfolding.

A flash follows with attendants and visitors running pell-mell away from the ‘Mr Bubbles, double bubble super fizz pop' tent. ‘Run for cover' they shout as people dive behind bales of straw just before the BIG explosion.

The next events seem to happen in slow motion as tents flatten across the field and flags bend horizontally away from the epicentre of Mr Bubbles. Then a black wall sweeps across towards you and there is only a moment to duck before it engulfs you. But thankfully it passes in a moment and you stand again to see the orator is covered head to foot in soot! He turns with mouth still open and moustache intact to the single flash of a reporter's camera.

‘Well it would appear that the 117th inventors fair has come to an abrupt end' he says to you with eyebrows raised as high as they will go.

The next day the local paper lands on your hall carpet with this very photograph, the orator is central, treacle black from head to foot and behind him the stately metal dome of Mr Bubbles is spurting with a mountain of foam.

The headline runs with ‘Inventor's Bubble Trouble. Hundreds flee from catastrophic fizzy pop explosion at the 117th inventors fair'.

To the left of the picture you can see yourself looking rather surprised.

What an event!

The End

Further Thoughts

What inventions would you have liked to have seen at the fair?

Are they big or small, can they be held in your hand, or carried on your back?

Is it edible, totally credible or just downright daft!

Have a talk amongst yourselves whilst the other groups catch up.
