24VDC PULL SOLENOIDS
It's Got Pull
Not a lot of pull, but plenty for its size. This tiny pull-type solenoid draws approx 250mA at 24VDC (won't work at 12VDC) and measures just under 7/8" long x 7/16" dia with a 7/8" long x 3/16" plunger.

LIGHT-UP LED SHOELACES
The Electric Shoelaces
Yet another item that sounds like a band Grace Slick used to front. These are real shoelaces, 31" long and made of 1/8" dia clear acrylic tubing that lights-up via LEDs. A 2-1/4" long module lets you pick steady on, slow flash or fast flash modes. Come with a replaceable coin cell battery with a 70-hour life. And, believe it or not, you can cut them to length. Great for home accent lighting, or model railroads, or dollhouses, or mouse discos. We'll pick a pair in (2) different colors--either blue, green, yellow, red or orange because we can.

SUNLIGHT REACTIVE COLORED BEADS
Make Solar Jewelry
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes.

THREE-WAY PULL CHAIN SWITCH
Go Ahead, Pull Our Chain
These cylindrical pull-chain switches are rated for 6A at 125VAC and 3A at 250VAC and have contacts labeled L, 1, 2 and STRIP/3 which makes us think: ceiling fan with lights. Round case measures1-1/4" dia x 7/8" thick. Wires mount through 5/16" long x 3/8" threaded plastic shaft with a brass nut.

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.
