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.

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.

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.

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.

The best part of robotic spiders? No webs, no mess. This motorized arachnid snaps together for easy arachnassembly, and has options for (2) gaits and stride lengths. Measures 3-1/2" tall x 6" x 4" when assembled and you add (1) "AA" battery to make it creep.
