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.

DIGITAL CAMO MAP CASE
On A Map Quest?
This multi-use case measures just 6-1/2" wide x 11" long in digital camo nylon with a 5" x 7" pouch with (5) pen slots on the front, but unfolds to 16-1/2" x 20" with one clear vinyl side for reading your map if you're storming an enemy position in the rain. If not, it's a small bag that turns into a big, see-through-on-one-side messenger bag. Hangs from an adjustable and removeable 42" long shoulder strap. Handy for travelers or 2nd Lieutenants.

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.

SPST PUSHBUTTON SWITCH
Latch On To This
This SPST latching (push on, push off) pushbutton switch reminds CJ of a cathedral radio cabinet, which means he's no spring chicken, or else he's just nostalgic. But they are indeed pretty retro looking. Rated for 11A at 110VAC and 6A at 220VAC. A pair of right-angle quick-disconnects are on the back. Measure 1-3/8" deep x 1-1/8" wide x 1-1/2" tall with a 5/8" dia button with flattened sides. No obvious way to mount them, but a clever person will figure something out. UL.

0.1UF 250V CAPACITORS
Capacitor Quartet
These 0.1uF ceramic capacitors have potted radial leads of stranded wire and are rated for up to 250V. Measuring 1-1/2" x 1/2", these are older-type capacitors and are probably more for point-to-point wiring, not PCB mounting.

STEEL JAW HARP
Jaw Harp...The Dentist's Friend
Plunk your magic twanger and call yourself froggy. This 3-5/8" long steel jaw harp, or mouth harp, is technically a plucked idiophone, but don't say that in Nashville. Includes playing instructions. Pay no attention to that vibration in your head.

3M™ ADHESIVE WALL HOOKS
Don't Screw With These
These plastic wall hooks measure 3-1/8" x 1-1/8" with 5/8" ID hooks and mount via the magical 3M™ adhesive strips so they're removable without damaging painted walls. Also good for lockers, but not so good for wallpaper. Color is "Royal Indigo" but commoners are permitted to use them.

BALLOON-POWERED FOAM MARS ROVER KIT
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.

$11.95 EACH
BALLOON HELICOPTER
For Helicopter Parents
Dirt-cheap fun for the kids--at home and at school. Attach the (3) 5-1/2" long plastic blades to the whistling nozzle, blow up the little balloon and watch the world's cheapest helicopter fly away. Paul says it demonstrates Newton's third law, but he says a lot things. Great for classroom demos. Paul not included.
