Charitable Collection

After the King of All Cosmos's latest drunken bender, a great many alien life forms throughout the galaxies have been displaced from their homes as a result of their stars and planets being destroyed. We're launching a charitable collection drive to aid these helpless victims of the King's thoughtlessness, and we hope you'll be able to contribute.

Please use your Katamari to collect distinct items satisfying, in order, at least 15 of the 21 criteria listed below. We expect you to take full advantage of the fact that the Katamari can pick up larger items the more it accumulates: each item you present must be of greater width than the previous one. (We define "width" as "smallest dimension"—i.e., the smallest distance such that the item could fit between two parallel planes separated by that distance.)

When you have completed your collection, phone the Aid Committee and we will send representatives to your headquarters to inspect your contribution. It would be helpful for you to have a list of measurements or estimates of the widths of your items prepared in advance.

List of criteria:

The fine print:

No more than five items should be constructed specifically for this charitable collection. No more than one should be a living human; no more than one should be a laptop or other computer that is turned on. All must be capable of maintaining a more or less constant width without active manipulation from members of your team. All must be actual physical objects.
