CLEAR 75ML PLASTIC JARS
PET Jars
The best thing about a pet jar is, it never needs to be walked and it never soils the carpet. But PET in this case means polyethylene terephthalate, and this clear plastic jar holds 75ml (approx 2-1/2 oz) with a gasketed safety screw cap. Measures 3-1/2" tall x 1-5/8" dia with a 1" ID mouth.

CONSUMER SURPRISE BOX
SURPRISE!!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!! Mystery boxes of stuff like what you see in the catalog. Maybe we had a little left but not enough to continue the listing. Maybe we only got a few as part of an odd lot. Maybe we lost some, and just found them in the warehouse. You will get items which originally listed for at least $25.00 total in our catalog (or would have, if we had enough). You pick. The “electro-mechanical” box has things like motors, switches, hardware and components that are useful parts but want to be worked into something bigger. The “consumer” box has more ready-to-go   type items, and things that don’t have as technical a flavor, like bottles, toys, books, and giant  rubber bands. The fun is in the mystery and surprise. Perfect if you don’t know what to give Aunt Maude and Uncle Ned, or if you can’t decide how to bring your order up to the minimum. Every couple of months the contents will keep changing, so even if you have gotten a box before, feel free to order again! (Please note: Ordering multiple boxes at the same time will result in duplicate items.)

LASER FOG LIGHT SHOW™
The Lava Lamp's Wild Cousin
Hey, nothing wrong with a nice lava lamp but our Laser Fog Light Show™ machine might open your eyes wider. Plug it in, fill the "Fantasy Liquid Reservoir" with mineral oil (included), hit the fog button, adjust the laser speed and special f/x, and then sit back and let the conical shaft of green light and swirling fog blow your mind. It's like a psychedelic hologram. Open the top and the laser cone appears to morph into flames, awesome foggy flames. Measures approx 14-1/2" tall x approx 6" dia. Check out the video here!

LED NIGHT LIGHT
324-Month Night Light
This cylindrical 120VAC night light plugs in to a standard electrical outlet, measures 4" tall x 1-1/2" dia and has a single white LED that's rated for 100,000 hours. At an average of ten hours of nightly darkness year-round, that means that you'll need a new one in 27 years. We can't guarantee we'll still have them in stock then, so be safe and order a few.

MILITARY SNOW SHOES
Magnesium Kicks For Bigfoot
Our each is a pair of magnesium snow shoes from the U.S. Military. Definitely not available at your local Feets Locker. Measure 46" long x 12" at their widest with a frame around woven cable construction, and you'll get buckled bindings and instructions with them. Non-snowbound? They look really cool on the wall. You could also invent a dandy squash-like racquet game with these, or make a catcher's mask for your horse. We don't have many of these in stock -- so hurry!

BURP PISTOL PLASTIC BALL SHOOTER
POW! POW! POW!
It’s 1953 all over again! Now you can buy your favorite childhood toy for your grandkids! We have the Original Burp Gun® that rapid–fires small ping–pong–type balls the length of our office as fast as we can pump the barrel (no batteries needed). All right, we remember the grip of the original as plain old brown plastic, and this one is bright red – but kids are used to a lot more stimulation these days! The Original Burp Gun®, which comes with (15) balls, is 30” long when fully extended. The Original Burp Pistol®, which comes with (7) balls, is 12” at its smallest and extends to 17”. Great fun – but maybe you’d better buy a couple of bags of extra balls (10 per bag). Big sisters still stomp on them. !WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-This toy contains a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.

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.

MOUNTLESS MOTOR
No Mount Motor
Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.

BRINE SHRIMP AQUARIUM KIT
Raise Shrimp For Fun & No Profit
Brine shrimp are too small for shrimp cocktails, but you'll enjoy raising the little buggers just the same. (Some people used to call them sea apes, but how would you like that?) You get a kit with a 5" x 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" clear plastic aquarium with removable spacers, a pipet, magnifier, a half-gram of brine shrimp eggs (with a 1-day hatching period), a gram of food, (2) vials and a 62-page manual chock full of fun shrimp lore. Fully grown they're a translucent centimeter long, fun to watch, and could be fed to your fish if you haven't grown too attached to them. From Jr. Scientist™.
