MOTORIZED BATTLING TOP KIT
Auto-Top Battler
This easy-to-assemble kit is a motorized top-launcher, because you can get tired of pulling strings all the time. Comes with printed instructions (but not a pretty department store box) and includes a 2" dia plastic top, 7" ramp, 5-1/2" square base, motor, power switch and battery holder. No soldering required. The battler part is where you try to knock over little cardboard creatures with the top, although you could add your own enemies. You'll also add (1) "AA" battery.

4-1/2" GLASS BLOCK
Hunka Hunka Glass Block
This quite pleasing piece of 4-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" thick glass has a slightly blue-ish tint. Nice for an (actual) desktop, and could most likely be engraved to serve as an award. Also could be a paper weight, or just minimalist art.

DAVINCI AERIAL SCREW HELICOPTER KIT
Leo Vinci Kits
Return with us now to those thrilling days of the 15th century, when Leonardo was designing stuff you wouldn't have thought of even if you'd paid attention in class and applied yourself. You choose from these wooden models of his genius designs. His unrealized aerial screw (think helicopter) stands approx 15" tall on a 9" square base and has a canvas canopy. Includes a 12-page manual and all the parts. For ages 9+. The trebuchet (think catapult) is based on his original 1482 design, stands approx 24" tall x 12-3/4" x 4-1/2" and comes with all the parts, including a clay ball to launch at your favorite model castle or your sister. Includes an 8-page instruction book and is for ages 12+. You'll need glue, a ruler and scissors for both, plus some small clamps for the trebuchet.

INCANDESCENT NIGHTLIGHTS
Lamp Unto Your Feet

VAYGACH THROWING AXE
Throwing Hatchet
From our This-Is-Definitely-Not-A-Toy division, this 8-1/2" long hatchet is called a Vaygach axe, named for an island in the Arctic Ocean. It's an all-purpose tool, made to chop wood, ice, or anything else, and for throwing. Has a very sharp blade that curves from the 3-1/2" front around to the 4" top, plus a wide flat screwdriver edge on the back. Heavy, with a tang extending to bottom of the wooden handles, it comes in a leather sheath with a snap-closure and belt loop. This is a serious tool, folks.

MILITARY SNOW SHOES
Magnesium Kicks For Bigfoot
Our each is a pair of magnesium snow shoes from the U.S. Military. Definitely not available at your local Feets Locker. Measure 46" long x 12" at their widest with a frame around woven cable construction, and you'll get buckled bindings and instructions with them. Non-snowbound? They look really cool on the wall. You could also invent a dandy squash-like racquet game with these, or make a catcher's mask for your horse. We don't have many of these in stock -- so hurry!

HARD SHELL WALLET
He's A Hard Case
A wallet to match your luggage. This hard-shell plastic wallet measures 4-3/8" x 3" x 13/16" thick in a brushed aluminumoidish finish. Inside has (7) accordion sleeves to hold credit cards, business cards, whatever. Closes with a good thumb latch. Don't need the little sleeves? You can peel them out and have a nice pocket-sized case for whatever.

The Catapencil Is Here!
Moms and teachers everywhere will thank us for stocking this 9" long slingshot that's made of a Y-shaped double-eraser plastic top on a #2 pencil. Get the proctor's attention during the SAT! Package says it proves the pen is mightier than the sword, and you could ask the other kids in detention if that's true.
