I'm looking for the name of a toy that I had as a kid 25 years ago or so. It was like dominoes, but it was strictly for setting up rows of the things and knocking them down. There were no dots or numbers on them. They had holes punched in them and they were weighted, so that you could set them up top-heavy. It came with a manual that had all kinds of ideas for setting up interesting patterns. I want the name of the product and the manufacturer.

You might be interested in the recent new world record for this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051119/ap_on_re_eu/netherlands_dominoes It has become an annual event (I believe) that is shown on European TV and lasts a couple of hours with many pictures formed and Rube Goldberg devices that do unexpected things. Teams work on each phase. Here is another individual record attempt: http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/world/newsid_3161000/3161029.stm
