        Velcro

        A sphinx asks two children how a pair of sneakers is like a dog that has been outside in this animated video from LOOP SCOOPS. The kids discuss how dogs, after being outside, sometimes return to the house covered in burrs. Looking at both burrs and Velcro® under a magnifying glass, the children discover that both are covered with tiny hooks. The sphinx explains that the inventor of Velcro® was actually inspired by a walk in the woods with his dog.
