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.

WORM FARM KIT
Raise Live Bait At Home
Worm farming is sweeping the nation. (Artisanal worms are the new quinoa in Brooklyn.) Your home oligochaetology kit from Tedco Toys® comes with a 6-5/8" x 11-5/8" x 2-3/4" see-through vertical farm, (2) 1.5 oz bags of colored sand, a cardboard shade (because worms can be modest), plastic pipette, tweezers and an illustrated 23-page worm-farming manual. You add a liter of soil, approx 10 oz of water, and, of course, worms, but the good news is that garden variety (literally) worms will work just fine. For ages 6 and up, because under that, they'll eat the worms.

DUPONT™ TYCHEM® MEDIUM COVERALL
The Suits of Hazard
Nothing says you're ready for anything like a nice hazmat suit. Ours are DuPont™ Tychem® CPF2 coveralls with attached boots and an elastic-faced hood, elastic wrist cuffs, zipper closure and DuPont™ logo on the left breast. Check the Web for specs and chemical protections, but the manufacturer says the material "combines a tough polypropylene substrate laminated with a layer of co-extruded barrier film." Apart from hazardous duty, it makes a dandy snow-blowing outfit. In industrial gray, you pick medium, approx 57" long with a 62" wingspan or the large, approx 59" long with a 64" wingspan. Made in the USA.

CLEVIS SLIP HOOK
Get The Hook
This forged-steel clevis slip hook, without latch, is bigger than it claims. Marked 5/16" but it's actually a 7/16" dia pin, 7/16" clevis, and is 9/16" thick. (The rewards of surplus.) The hook ID is 1-1/16" and it's 4" long from pin to bottom, grade 43, and rated for a 2,875-lb load.
