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.

PISTOL-STYLE INFRARED THERMOMETER
Shoot-out On The Range
Point this pistol-style infrared thermometer at the stove and read temps from -4 to 626 F or -20 to 330 C in under a half-second. Comes with a 9V battery and a belt-mounted carrying case, which would make it a holster, pardner.

SONIC-SENSITIVE UFO ROBOT
The Shy Extraterrestrial
This extremely cute alien peeks out and waves his arms from the top of his UFO, which spins in circles, but when you yell at him, or make any sharp, loud noise, he ducks back down into his spacecraft, as most aliens would, and goes quiet. Measures 4-5/8" dia x 4-1/2" tall when he's in up-alien mode. Simple assembly required. Includes an 18-page manual with assembly instructions and sonic-movement challenges. You add a trio of "AAA" earth batteries.

DAVINCI AERIAL SCREW HELICOPTER 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.

SOLAR CAR COOLER
Suck Out The Bad Air!
You say it's 235° inside your parked Deusenberg in Phoenix? You say your kid's sippy cup melted while you were in the video store? You need this solar-powered car ventilator. Hook it over a window, power the window up and let the sun activate the solar panel and run the 3" dia fan, which sucks the hot air out of the car and vents it outside. Also great for eliminating pet and tobacco odors. The whole thing measures 6" wide x 4-3/4" x 2-3/8", with a slim 1/4" x 1" x 6" long piece outside the window. Includes 1" wide weather-stripping to seal it.

SNAP BRACELETS
Snap Goes The Bracelet
Easy as slapping the cuffs on a 12-year-old, these rainbow/tie-dye-ish colored steel snap (or slap) bracelets are a perennial tween favorite, and remain hot among folks who were tweenish when the wrist adornments came out. (You know who you are.) Measure 9" long x 1-1/4" wide. You'll get enough to double-wrap five tween wrists.

At 6V it draws 30mA, stalls at 260mA and spins at approx 600 rpm. At 12VDC it draws 320mA, stalls at 2.5A and spins approx 1350 rpm. Measures 1-3/8" long x 1-11/32" dia with flattened sides and dual 3/32" shafts, one just under 3/8" and one at 1/4". Has a pair of 5" leads.
