You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

If you live in or near Providence, Rhode Island, Kate is looking for some atheists and/or scientists to test some science-related toys and products next week as part of a focus group.
More details are in this PDF.
A rather odd selection of a test group. I don’t necessarily see the connection between atheist and science toys.
Kate’s toys are awesome! She used them with our mini-Camp Quest at the AAI conference last year, and they were a big hit.
@Ron: Kate has tested her toys with other groups before, including in public schools. I think she’s interested in having atheist testers because her toys focus on introducing evolution to young children, which is something that a lot of nonreligious parents are really focused on and are looking for help with. Atheists and scientists are among her target audiences, but they are not the entire audience.
As a parent of two and as an atheist, I would love to attend this. Even my location in CT is too far for a Wednesday. Best of luck to Kate, though.
Darn, I don’t live anywhere near there, but I wanted to see what toys she has already available.
Website not open yet… boo!
Sex toys? If they’re sex toys, I’m on the next flight. Are they sex toys? I hope they’re sex toys.
