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.

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 LANTERN RADIOS
Lantern Flashlight Radios
Nothing says you're prepared like having (2) combination LED lanterns with flashlights on the side, FM scan radios in the bottoms, 4-draw antennae, little speakers, earpiece jacks (you bring the ear-piece) and handles on top. They run on (3) "AA" batteries that you also bring, or you can power them with a wall-wart that, yes, you'll bring, but why argue--just put the batteries in, hang 'em in the tent and listen up. They measure 4-1/4" tall x 3-1/4" dia in white with black accents.

3-IN-1 SOLAR SNAP TOGETHER ROBOT KIT
Solar Robotics
These snap-together kits have a solar cell and small motor for power, and will transform into multiple robots for increased robotic fun. You pick: the 3-in-1 kit, which can be configured as a traditional robot, scorpion or tank; or the 6-in-1 kit which will reincarnate as a solar windmill, robot, helicopter, plane, airboat or "wheeler," a moon-bot sort of rover. Both kits come with graphic instruction booklets.

CAMERA CHEST MOUNT
Point Your Torso And Shoot
This adjustable chest harness from Vivitar® has a tiltable 1/4"-20 standard camera mount. The rig goes around your torso and over your shoulders, and your camera/camcorder will sit approx 6" below your collarbone, or sternum-ish.

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.

Santa Train's A-Comin'
Santa goes sleigh-free when he rides his poly-resin holiday train with dozens of fiber-optic strands in assorted colors all over it, pulling a car full of trees, toys and reindeer who are taking the night off. You stick in (3) "AA" batteries (or a 4.5VDC adapter if you have one) and light it up in one of the two slow-flashing modes. Measures 7" tall x 10" long x 5-1/2" wide.

5" SMILEY FACE BENDY MAN
The Happy Alien
He's officially called Bendy Man, a smiley face with an ultra-skinny body, but to us he's a close encounter with a yellow extraterrestrial who's mighty happy to be here. Endlessly posable--and buck nekkid! Since you get two, think about earrings.

CAP REMOVER
Twist & Shout!
You say you're having trouble twisting off those twist-off bottle caps? You'll shout "Eureka!," or at least "Beer!," when you stick your neck into this spring-loaded bottle-cap remover. Measures an easy-to-grip 3-3/8" tall x approx 2" ID mouth and one good turn opens your beverage. We'll pick red, black or blue.
