FERRITE TOROIDS
Iron Doughnuts
Ferrite toroids, actually. (The Iron Doughnuts was the house band at the Fillmore West in '66.) These doughnuts are for making transformers and filters and other magnetic magic. Ours measure 1-5/16" x 11/16" x 1/2".

$3.50 PKG (6)
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.

BALLOON-POWERED FOAM MARS ROVER KIT
Run Rover, Run!
This kit has the parts for (2) foam-bodied, balloon-powered Mars Rover-ish vehicles. Completed rovers will be approx 4" long. You get a fact sheet about rovers and assembly instructions. You'll need to add a little glue. Made in the USA, just like the real Mars Rovers.

PLASTIC FLIP-TOP STORAGE BOXES
Flat Boxes
These translucent white polypropylene flip-top boxes measure 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 5/8" deep and have lightly snap-close lids, so you might add a rubber band if you're carrying diamonds in them. We like them for drill and driver bits, hooks and sinkers, beads and glitter, screws and washers, and buttons and bows.

INDOOR/OUTDOOR WIRELESS THERMOMETER
Smart Thermometer
Tells indoor and outdoor temps on a remote base without the benefit of wires.

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.

$19.95 EACH
REMOTE CONTROL OUTLETS

The Super Switch is a set of (2) plug-through switches controlled by a single two-button remote, and it's good for indoor or outdoor use. Plug the yard lights, fountain, holiday lights or anything else into one and control them from your chaise lounge. Includes grounded 8A outlets and a remote fob powered by an included 12V battery. Max 1000W per outlet. ETL listed.

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.
