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.

SMALL WHITE CHEF'S HAT
One Toque Over The Line
This white polyester chef's hat is approx 7" tall x puffy and has an adjustable hook-and-loop band but at the largest it's still pretty small, maybe a man's size 6-7/8. We think they're from a kid's nutritional program, and the max circumference is about 21", so check your noggin. Front band says "BellyFULL...eat happily ever after™."

INDOOR/OUTDOOR WIRELESS THERMOMETER
Smart Thermometer
Tells indoor and outdoor temps on a remote base without the benefit of wires. Includes a 4-5/8" x 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" base with a 2" x 2-1/8" LCD that shows indoor and outdoor min/max/current temps in F or C, plus a time and date display and an ice alert for the remote, which measures 3-3/4" x 2" x 1" with a keyed mounting hole. You add (2) "AAA" batteries and (1) "AA" for the units. Range is 100 feet in the line of sight.

LED NIGHT LIGHT
324-Month Night Light
This cylindrical 120VAC night light plugs in to a standard electrical outlet, measures 4" tall x 1-1/2" dia and has a single white LED that's rated for 100,000 hours. At an average of ten hours of nightly darkness year-round, that means that you'll need a new one in 27 years. We can't guarantee we'll still have them in stock then, so be safe and order a few.

RECHARGEABLE LED MAGNIFIER LAMP
How Do You Stand It?
Actually, it stands all by itself. This portable rechargeable tabletop 5X magnifier has a 3-3/4" dia lens with a 3/4" dia 8X lens embedded in it, and a flip-up cover. Lights up with (40) white LEDs and is on a 12" pivoting neck supported on an 8-3/4" x 6-1/4" oval base. Includes a dimmer switch, rechargeable NiMH batteries and an AC adapter for charging.

BROWN STAIN PEN
Stain Pen
For fixing minor scratches in furniture and cabinets, this felt-tip pen has a 3/16" wedge tip and holds a little under a third of an ounce of "provincial" stain, which some of us think is sort of walnut while others went with "chocolate milk." Think brown, but without any red notes.

GUITAR-SHAPED BALLPOINT PEN
Make Your Notes Sing
Compose yourself with one of these 6-1/2" ball-point pens shaped like an electric guitar. We'll pick one that resembles a Rickenfenderbird crossed with a jazz bass. With black ink and a little cap so the notes don't leak out. When they run dry you can always play air pen.

HELIX® 0.5MM MECHANICAL DRAFTING PENCIL
0.5mm Pencil
This 0.5mm mechanical drafting pencil from Helix® has a plunger mechanism with an eraser under it, and is exactly like the one Terry the Copywriter has in his briefcase for crossword puzzles because nobody's perfect, especially on the NYT Saturday puzzle, which he always finishes. Comes with a few pieces of lead, but we recommend buying 2B because it's so soft and nice to write with.
