    Default Anyone remember what this paper thing was called?

    I remember making a hand held little 'puzzle' thing out of paper but I can't recall what it was called.. it had numbers on the corners and inside when you opened it, you would hold it with your thumbs and your index fingers and you could switch it from one way to another. you could also lift the paper inside to reveal the name of a colour (I think)

    Sorry, not much descriiption lol. Just can't really explain properly without pics.
