VIOLET KALEIDOSCOPIC LASER POINTER
The Violet Array
Our lovely violet laser pointer has an adjustable kaleidoscopic lens for making pretty patterns, but unscrew the top and it's a standard, but vibrant violet, pointer for running meetings. Either way, the cat will love it. Measures 6-3/8" long with a pocket clip and includes a pair of "AAA" batteries.

KIDS ANIMAL BIOLOGY FACTS BOOK
How Long Can A Fly Fly?
And other stuff kids ask you. The 205-page book with this title includes 175 questions about animals, birds and insects, answered by Swedish biologist Lars-Ake Janzon with a Swedish bent, but not so much as to put off non-Swedish kids. Flies, by the way, can fly 5 mph and don't sleep, but grasshoppers have ears on their stomachs.

PARAFOIL KITE WITH STRING
Curses, Parafoiled Again
Go fly a kite. We highly recommend this rainbow-colored nylon parafoil version, measures 20" x 23" at its widest with a 14-foot tail (over three times longer than a tiger's) on a spindle with a couple hundred feet of string. Includes a carrying pouch, too, making it a very practical, portable parafoil.

MAGNIFYING MIRROR WITH SUCTION CUPS
Stick 'Em Up
Stick one of these 6" dia acrylic magnifying mirrors on your shower or bathroom wall and you've got a whole new outlook on life, or at least on your mug. Magnifies approx 1.5X, which is as much as most of us can stand, and has (3) big suction cups on the back for added stickification.

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.
