ALLEN PARK, Michigan (WDIV) - A 12-year-old inventor is getting a patent for a game she invented three years ago with the help of the family pet.
Hamster Bowling was less of an idea spinning around in Alyssa Reiter's head, and more of a creative accident.
"My hamster was rolling on the ground and these chew sticks were there, and he knocked them over so I called it Hamster Bowling," she explains. "There's a lot of steps to getting your patent and it takes a long time. But mine is getting issued May 7th."
