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™.

UGLYDOLL™ ROCKET RIDE
Uglydolls™ Go To The Carnival
A triumph of retro-hipsterism. This 8" tall tin rocket ride looks like a post-WWII carnival toy but the riders are all Uglydolls™, which who doesn't love? It's "super awesome," it says, and we agree. Spins via an internal spring mechanism. The only non-metal parts are the mylar propellers, the better for the spinning. Click here for video.

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.

ACRYLIC AMERICAN FLAG
Acrylic Stars & Stripes
These acrylic American flags (the white stripes and stars are clear) were originally mounted on the head of a flashlight, which we don't have. Nice, though. Drill a hole in a pole or other mounting material to take the 7/8" dia bottom of the mast and you've got a new, modern take on Old Glory. Measures 5-1/4" x 3" x 5/16" thick plus the staff which extends 1-1/4" below the flag.

SOLAR CAR COOLER
Suck Out The Bad Air!
You say it's 235° inside your parked Deusenberg in Phoenix? You say your kid's sippy cup melted while you were in the video store? You need this solar-powered car ventilator. Hook it over a window, power the window up and let the sun activate the solar panel and run the 3" dia fan, which sucks the hot air out of the car and vents it outside. Also great for eliminating pet and tobacco odors. The whole thing measures 6" wide x 4-3/4" x 2-3/8", with a slim 1/4" x 1" x 6" long piece outside the window. Includes 1" wide weather-stripping to seal it.

LEFT-EAR HEADSET
Look Ma, No Hands!
Our phone headsets all have swing-up mics with a windscreen, adjustable headbands and padded ear-pieces. The 4-foot cords terminate in a 5-pin DIN plug. (Orienting the plug with the pins on the bottom, the two left pins are 35-ohm, probably for the speaker; the middle pin is not active; and the two right pins are 2K, we think for the mic.) You pick the left-ear set or the adjustable set, which will fit either left or right ears.

SOFT-GRIP MEDIUM POINT COLOR PENS
RBGB
No, not a defunct punk club in the East Village, a 4-pack of medium-tip ball points with red, blue, green and black ink, respectively, and with soft-grip bodies in colors to match the ink so you don't get confused. With pockets clips, 5-1/2" long.

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.
