Need help remembering a product from an old infomercial!

Does anyone remember an infomercial from the late 80s/early 90s that advertised a product that you could easily crochet "granny" squares? I think the squares actually popped off this thing and then you could sew them together. I can't remember the name of the product!

We're part of a child care co-op arrangement for a month, which means I'll have six 6-year olds to myself for three (non consecutive), six-hour days. I could use some suggestions for creative activities -- running around (we've got lots of outdoor room, wooded and open), arts and crafts, whatever. Ideas that require buying supplies are fine.
