ITEMS JUST OFF THE TRUCK

UGLYDOLL™ LUNCHBOX
Ugly Lunchbox
In old-timey tin, it features a whole bunch of Uglydoll™ characters, including a large blue Ice Bat on the cover. Box measures 7-3/4" x 6" x 3-3/8 with a clasp and carrying handle. They're calling it a "keepsake box" but that's not for you, that's for people who don't have the confidence to carry an ugly lunchbox. We have no clue as to why it carries a choking hazard warning, but it does.

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.

20W HALOGEN BULBS
Shine A Light
Our each is (2) 12V halogen bulbs with standard GU5.3 bi-pin bases. For low-voltage systems, bulbs are 1-7/8 dia, MR16 reflector flood lights with a 30-degree beam spread. You pick the 20W or 50W.

STEEL JAW HARP
Jaw Harp...The Dentist's Friend
Plunk your magic twanger and call yourself froggy. This 3-5/8" long steel jaw harp, or mouth harp, is technically a plucked idiophone, but don't say that in Nashville. Includes playing instructions. Pay no attention to that vibration in your head.

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.

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.

MORPHING LED NIGHT LIGHT
No More Boring Nights
Every night you stagger to the bathroom and the night light is just there, the same color, night after night after night. We hate that, so we got these 120VAC photocell-activated LED night lights that morph through the spectrum even while you're sleeping. In silver fan-shaped plastic, you can also use the frosted white lens or flip it to the faceted side for an even more exciting midnight trip to the smallest room in the house. Measures 3-1/4" x 2-3/16" x 1-1/2". UL.

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.

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.
