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.

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.

SCIENCE FACT AND TRIVIA BOOK
Useless Science You Can Use
The Useless Science Fact-O-Pedia, despite a semi-dumb name, is a quite useful trivia collection, with a focus on science instead of old Seinfeld episodes, or shortstops. Runs over 300 pages with a couple of hundred categories in alphabetical order with a handful to a dozen facts about each, from amino acids to zymurgy, which is our favorite. Perfect bio lab bathroom book. And a horse has 89 feet of intestines.

CLEVIS SLIP HOOK
Get The Hook
This forged-steel clevis slip hook, without latch, is bigger than it claims. Marked 5/16" but it's actually a 7/16" dia pin, 7/16" clevis, and is 9/16" thick. (The rewards of surplus.) The hook ID is 1-1/16" and it's 4" long from pin to bottom, grade 43, and rated for a 2,875-lb load.

BROWN STAIN PEN
Stain Pen
For fixing minor scratches in furniture and cabinets, this felt-tip pen has a 3/16" wedge tip and holds a little under a third of an ounce of "provincial" stain, which some of us think is sort of walnut while others went with "chocolate milk." Think brown, but without any red notes.
