Summary

Steve and Blue look at many inventions.

Recap

Steve came up with a device to use to change the channel on the television without getting up, but when he realizes that there's already such a thing, it spurs him to try and create a unique invention following the slogan of try again. When he asked Blue if she invented something, she replied that she did, and the play Blue's Clues to figure out what that invention is. After finding the 1st clue on the notebook (just when he got it from Sidetable), Steve meets up with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper, who want to eat peanut butter and jelly on bread together. Steve's excited at his solution: the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, only to realize that it already exists. Then they come across Shovel and Pail and play an invention game. We take a look at pictures of inventions and identify the order in which they were invented. After finding the 2nd clue on the Thinking Chair, they skidoo into an invention factory, where they take a look at some famous inventions such as a train and a car. Before he skidooed back home, Steve found the 3rd clue on a picture of pawprints. When they got home they find that the very game they were playing is the answer and that Blue invented it.
