GLASS HAND BOILER TOY
Prove You're Hot Stuff
Hold the bottom onion-shaped bulb of this 4" glass toy in your hand and watch the liquid (green, red, blue or purple, we'll pick) magically bubble up into the top chamber and keep on bubbling like the dickens, as your grandmother used to say. The magic is ethyl alcohol and physics. WARNING! The glass if fragile and the liquid is nasty. If you drop the thing in the kitchen it will eat the finish off the tile and permanently stain the floor, so don't let the kids handle this item unsupervised.

WORM FARM KIT
Raise Live Bait At Home
Worm farming is sweeping the nation. (Artisanal worms are the new quinoa in Brooklyn.) Your home oligochaetology kit from Tedco Toys® comes with a 6-5/8" x 11-5/8" x 2-3/4" see-through vertical farm, (2) 1.5 oz bags of colored sand, a cardboard shade (because worms can be modest), plastic pipette, tweezers and an illustrated 23-page worm-farming manual. You add a liter of soil, approx 10 oz of water, and, of course, worms, but the good news is that garden variety (literally) worms will work just fine. For ages 6 and up, because under that, they'll eat the worms.

SMALL COTTON BOONIE HATS
Head To The Hills
These 100% cotton, beige boonie hats have wide brims, 26" neck straps with a leather slide, (4) air vents and a dozen slots to clip stuff like fishing lures onto the ribbon band. Pay no attention to the "size 7-3/4" label; they're all smalls, maybe verging on medium. Think 7 to 7-1/4.

WOODEN HANDLED PUSH DRILL
Your Own Personal Persian Drill
Persian (aka "push") drills operate by sliding a nut up and down a piece of spiral-twist steel. Time was they were the go-to tool for delicate metalwork (and dentistry) because they can be easily controlled. This one is a 10-1/2" long steel thread with a wooden handle at the top and around the nut. Comes with a 1/16" and a 1/32" collet. A tool-collector must-have, if only for instructional purposes.

OLD WORLD KALEIDOSCOPE
Renaissance Kaleidoscope
Forget that the 6-3/4" long body is festooned with Latin phrases and old maps. The stones/beads/glass inside the tube would make designing windows in cathedrals a snap. And hey, that's good work if you can get it. A nice gift for Rosetta window fans, and a must for that special bishop in your life.

SCIENCE FACT AND TRIVIA BOOK
Useless Science You Can Use
The Useless Science Fact-O-Pedia, despite a semi-dumb name, is a quite useful trivia collection, with a focus on science instead of old Seinfeld episodes, or shortstops. Runs over 300 pages with a couple of hundred categories in alphabetical order with a handful to a dozen facts about each, from amino acids to zymurgy, which is our favorite. Perfect bio lab bathroom book. And a horse has 89 feet of intestines.
