    Have you tried it out yet??
    Looks great - but whether or not it work well is more important to me.
    Congratulations on the idea, though. All that for less than $60.00? I'm jealous!

    With the see through front my kids were able to watch the whole thing without any danger of upsetting the incubators function. I loved it! [​IMG]
