We are very frustrated, too, because the parts do not connect to the mounting board. We are out of GlueDots, but should not be. DrawBot is great, and would be Awesome if it the pieces would just stick to the mounting board.
We also tried LEGOS, and the same thing... connect for a few seconds, then pop off the mounting board. The LEGOS do stick to the a8 Brick Adapters, but the a8 Brick Adapters do not stick to the mounting board. Why not?!?!?
If LEGOS would stick to the mounting board, to if the a8 Brick Adapters could stick to the mounting board, we could use them upside-down to hold the drawing arm in place (and we could do many more things, too!).
LittleBits - PLEASE HELP!
