GITD DUCKTAPE®
GITD Duckling Tape
From the DUCKTAPE® people, but in a narrow size, 3/4" wide on a 72" roll, and it glows in the dark, just like a real duckling that's soaked up too many roentgens. Handy for marking bikes, bats, luggage and dog collars.

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!

MOTORIZED BATTLING TOP KIT
Auto-Top Battler
This easy-to-assemble kit is a motorized top-launcher, because you can get tired of pulling strings all the time. Comes with printed instructions (but not a pretty department store box) and includes a 2" dia plastic top, 7" ramp, 5-1/2" square base, motor, power switch and battery holder. No soldering required. The battler part is where you try to knock over little cardboard creatures with the top, although you could add your own enemies. You'll also add (1) "AA" battery.

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.

12VDC BOSCH MOTOR
The Beast
CJ, our VP for Knowing Stuff About Motors, calls this a beast of a 12VDC intermediate-duty gear motor from Bosch. Draws 3A no load and stalls at 10A; spins approx 60 rpm. Measures 7-3/8" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/4" with a 10" 4-wire lead with Molex connectors. Output is through a 3/8" ID plastic bushing with crosswise slots.

CHRISTMAS TREE MOBILE
Tannenmobile
Save the pine forests and hang this acrylic Christmas tree mobile instead of dragging a dead Balsam or Fraser into your living room. Five nesting pieces in varying shades of pine-like green, with the outside spinner measuring 12" tall x 12-1/2" at the bottom branches. Even has a gold star at the top. We think it's what Alexander Calder would have hung every December if he'd thought of it.

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.

SANTA TRAIN
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.

SWITCH LIGHT
Light-Switch
This light switch is literally a light and switch. Call it a switch light.  Measures 4-1/2" x 3" x 3/4", like a thick switch plate, but frosted white so when you flip the switch, the plate lights up with (8) white LEDs inside the face plate. You add (3) "AAA" batteries for power and we supply the (2) hook-and-loop strips for mounting it on the wall. Think closets, cupboards and lockers.
