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™.

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.

SCREW EYES
Screw Hooks And Eyes
Actually, we like hooks and eyes, especially when they have screws on the other end and they're great for hanging stuff from. You choose. Our 1-3/8" long steel screw eyes have 3/8" IDs. You'll get (2) packs with (10) screw eyes in each, which will hang up to (20) things--and we did that math all in our head. Our 4" long screw hooks have a 1" ID and we've got them because the package says they're 4-1/8" long. Ain't surplus wonderful? You'll get (2) packs, or (4) hooks altogether. Let the hanging begin.

MAGNETIC MARS LIGHT
All Lights, No Siren
Everybody from tow-truck to Lawn Order SUV drivers like to slap a magnetic mars light on their dashboard or roof. This triple-threat 12VDC warning light has a rotating incandescent light and a choice of amber, red or blue domes that screw onto the magnetic dodecahedral (that's 12 sides, Danno) base. The coiled cord with the cigarette-lighter/accessory plug stretches to ten feet and the light measures approx 6" tall x 4-1/2" across. Before you use it, be sure to check to see if you're a cop, firefighter, ambulance driver or are towing something, unless you're the new VP in charge of blue-light specials.

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.

UGLYDOLL™ LUNCHBOX
Ugly Lunchbox
In old-timey tin, it features a whole bunch of Uglydoll™ characters, including a large blue Ice Bat on the cover. Box measures 7-3/4" x 6" x 3-3/8 with a clasp and carrying handle. They're calling it a "keepsake box" but that's not for you, that's for people who don't have the confidence to carry an ugly lunchbox. We have no clue as to why it carries a choking hazard warning, but it does.

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!

Shoot-out On The Range
Point this pistol-style infrared thermometer at the stove and read temps from -4 to 626 F or -20 to 330 C in under a half-second. Comes with a 9V battery and a belt-mounted carrying case, which would make it a holster, pardner.
