CORNER BRACES
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.

GREEN GITD PARACORD ROPE
I Can't Find My Tent!
Smart campers buy glow-in-the-dark rope. You'll get (100) feet of 5/32" dia 7-strand paracord with a 220-lb working load, a 660-lb breaking point, and a nice light green glow-tone. Handy for not tripping at the campsite, and for rustling cattle in the dark, as long as they weigh less than 660 lbs.

DAVINCI TREBUCHET KIT
Leo Vinci Kits
Return with us now to those thrilling days of the 15th century, when Leonardo was designing stuff you wouldn't have thought of even if you'd paid attention in class and applied yourself. You choose from these wooden models of his genius designs. His unrealized aerial screw (think helicopter) stands approx 15" tall on a 9" square base and has a canvas canopy. Includes a 12-page manual and all the parts. For ages 9+. The trebuchet (think catapult) is based on his original 1482 design, stands approx 24" tall x 12-3/4" x 4-1/2" and comes with all the parts, including a clay ball to launch at your favorite model castle or your sister. Includes an 8-page instruction book and is for ages 12+. You'll need glue, a ruler and scissors for both, plus some small clamps for the trebuchet.

SUNLIGHT REACTIVE COLORED BEADS
Make Solar Jewelry
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes.

PULL BACK MINIATURE RACE CARS
Zip Cars
These tiny plastic cars, just 2-1/8" long, will zip along at high speed for 20 feet or so on a single pull. Just put 'em on the floor, pull back until you hear the click and let 'em go. A kid's pocketful of non-electronic fun. Our each is two packs of three (6 total) cars in assorted colors for racing. Please: no wagering.

KIDS METAL DETECTOR

Give your kids a head start on their retirement years with this mini metal detector. It's for kids but it's also a working tool, with a 5" dia plastic-encased magnetic loop, a trio of red indicator LEDs, and a sensitivity control. Has a range of about 3". On a tot-friendly 7-1/4" long handle. You add a couple of "AAA" batteries and let the kids keep the bottle caps.

TOTE SACK WITH CINCH CORD
Tote That Corn...
We usually put our popcorn in a bowl, but this large, 23" x 18" promotional tote bag from Dale and Thomas Popcorn ("Share Some®") argues otherwise. It's surplus, though, so you're now permitted to carry anything you want in it. Has a red and white pattern that seems to be a cornfield in the snow, and a drawstring top.

5" SMILEY FACE BENDY MAN
The Happy Alien
He's officially called Bendy Man, a smiley face with an ultra-skinny body, but to us he's a close encounter with a yellow extraterrestrial who's mighty happy to be here. Endlessly posable--and buck nekkid! Since you get two, think about earrings.
