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.

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.

SNAP BRACELETS
Snap Goes The Bracelet
Easy as slapping the cuffs on a 12-year-old, these rainbow/tie-dye-ish colored steel snap (or slap) bracelets are a perennial tween favorite, and remain hot among folks who were tweenish when the wrist adornments came out. (You know who you are.) Measure 9" long x 1-1/4" wide. You'll get enough to double-wrap five tween wrists.

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.

BURP PISTOL PLASTIC BALL SHOOTER
POW! POW! POW!
It’s 1953 all over again! Now you can buy your favorite childhood toy for your grandkids! We have the Original Burp Gun® that rapid–fires small ping–pong–type balls the length of our office as fast as we can pump the barrel (no batteries needed). All right, we remember the grip of the original as plain old brown plastic, and this one is bright red – but kids are used to a lot more stimulation these days! The Original Burp Gun®, which comes with (15) balls, is 30” long when fully extended. The Original Burp Pistol®, which comes with (7) balls, is 12” at its smallest and extends to 17”. Great fun – but maybe you’d better buy a couple of bags of extra balls (10 per bag). Big sisters still stomp on them. !WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-This toy contains a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.

SMALL PLASTIC SPRING-LOADED CLAMPS
Say Hello To The Clampettes
No, not Beverly Hillbillies, just super-handy small plastic spring-loaded clamps, 3-1/2" long with 2" padded jaws. We'll pick (4) from our array of neon colors, but you can call them Jed, Granny, Elly May and Jethro if you want.

PISTOL-STYLE INFRARED THERMOMETER
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.

PLASTIC FLIP-TOP STORAGE BOXES
Flat Boxes
These translucent white polypropylene flip-top boxes measure 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" deep and have lightly snap-close lids, so you might add a rubber band if you're carrying diamonds in them. We like them for drill and driver bits, hooks and sinkers, beads and glitter, screws and washers, and buttons and bows.
