PLASTIC FLIP-TOP STORAGE BOXES
Flat Boxes
These translucent white polypropylene flip-top boxes measure 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" deep and have lightly snap-close lids, so you might add a rubber band if you're carrying diamonds in them. We like them for drill and driver bits, hooks and sinkers, beads and glitter, screws and washers, and buttons and bows.

ENGINO® 100 INVENTOR PRO KIT
One Hundred Models
You could send a kid to his (or her, cuz girls are builders, too) room for a month with this inVentor Pro model-building kit from Engino®. We're talking wheels, treads, drives, scads of brick-like snap-together parts and (2) remote control motors for a total of (498) pieces and (1,930) connecting points. You'll get (10) different model instructions, with more downloadable at  www.engino.com. You provide a half-dozen "AAA" batteries and enough peanut butter sandwiches and you'll have one happy 8- to 14-year-old.

MOUNTLESS MOTOR
No Mount Motor
Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.

3M™ ADHESIVE WALL HOOKS
Don't Screw With These
These plastic wall hooks measure 3-1/8" x 1-1/8" with 5/8" ID hooks and mount via the magical 3M™ adhesive strips so they're removable without damaging painted walls. Also good for lockers, but not so good for wallpaper. Color is "Royal Indigo" but commoners are permitted to use them.

ELENCO® ASTRONAUT ROBOT KIT
Solar Astronaut Robot
This solar-powered walking bot has a battery backup because who can count on the sun? From Elenco®, it's called the Astronaut, but apart from the big face mask it doesn't really look much like Neil Armstrong. Nice kit, though; fun to build, fun to watch. You get a 1.5V solar cell, DC motor, gear drives with hardware and colorful plastic parts to make a 6" tall figure. Takes a single "AA" battery, which you supply since NASA forgot.

SONIC-SENSITIVE UFO ROBOT
The Shy Extraterrestrial
This extremely cute alien peeks out and waves his arms from the top of his UFO, which spins in circles, but when you yell at him, or make any sharp, loud noise, he ducks back down into his spacecraft, as most aliens would, and goes quiet. Measures 4-5/8" dia x 4-1/2" tall when he's in up-alien mode. Simple assembly required. Includes an 18-page manual with assembly instructions and sonic-movement challenges. You add a trio of "AAA" earth batteries.

BRINE SHRIMP AQUARIUM KIT
Raise Shrimp For Fun & No Profit
Brine shrimp are too small for shrimp cocktails, but you'll enjoy raising the little buggers just the same. (Some people used to call them sea apes, but how would you like that?) You get a kit with a 5" x 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" clear plastic aquarium with removable spacers, a pipet, magnifier, a half-gram of brine shrimp eggs (with a 1-day hatching period), a gram of food, (2) vials and a 62-page manual chock full of fun shrimp lore. Fully grown they're a translucent centimeter long, fun to watch, and could be fed to your fish if you haven't grown too attached to them. From Jr. Scientist™.
