  • Robert Rodriguez's Some Inventions Stick Others Roll

    Some Inventions Stick Others Roll Robert Rodriguez’s “Marketing New Inventions” is an essay about inventions not going the way people envisioned. The first example Rodriguez gives is the mother and daughter Fresno duo, who were the first to invent the hide-and-seek Hayley doll, a product that made itself known on many nations’ largest toy stores.
