The Little Giant Ladder

What It Is: A ladder system.

Best Description: It's really 24 ladders in one - it's like having an entire garage of ladders.

Shills: Richard Karn, Tim Allen's co-host on Home Improvement's "Tool Time." A woman named Robin Hartl.

Tan pants? Yes. Hartl has the blue shirt, too.

Quote: "One ladder does it all!"

Gimmick: Putting 10 people on the ladder, including the infomercial's producer and director - apparently the entire studio staff except the camera operator.

Trivia: The first Little Giant Ladder was sold more than 30 years ago.

Patriot Act: Noted several times that the ladder is American-made. All branches of the U.S. military have purchased and are using Little Giant ladders.

Quote: "You can make it tall, short, go upstairs, go downstairs."

Bonus demonstration: Fat guy on a Little Giant Ladder.

Cost: $359.80.

Easy Payments? No.

Comment: From the sound of it, this ladder can send spaceships to the moon and cure cancer. Little Giant Ladder for President!

Evaluation: It looks like a helluva ladder. It really does.

Rating: 7
