SOFT-GRIP MEDIUM POINT COLOR PENS
RBGB
No, not a defunct punk club in the East Village, a 4-pack of medium-tip ball points with red, blue, green and black ink, respectively, and with soft-grip bodies in colors to match the ink so you don't get confused. With pockets clips, 5-1/2" long.

HELIX® DOCUMENT TUBE
Down The Tube
Or up the tube, depending. From Helix® comes this expanding document/art tube in black plastic. Starts at 17" long and pulls out to a max of 29" with (6) locking positions in between. Measures 2-1/4" ID and has a  screw cap with an adjustable 32" strap attached.

HELIX® 0.5MM MECHANICAL DRAFTING PENCIL
0.5mm Pencil
This 0.5mm mechanical drafting pencil from Helix® has a plunger mechanism with an eraser under it, and is exactly like the one Terry the Copywriter has in his briefcase for crossword puzzles because nobody's perfect, especially on the NYT Saturday puzzle, which he always finishes. Comes with a few pieces of lead, but we recommend buying 2B because it's so soft and nice to write with.

12VDC REVERSIBLE MABUCHI MOTOR
Look Into This Motor
This older (let's say vintage) but unused blue enamel reversible Mabuchi DC motor has a little window on one side, so you can watch it work. It's rated for 1.5-12VDC. At 6V it draws 30mA, stalls at 260mA and spins at approx 600 rpm. At 12VDC it draws 320mA, stalls at 2.5A and spins approx 1350 rpm. Measures 1-3/8" long x 1-11/32" dia with flattened sides and dual 3/32" shafts, one just under 3/8" and one at 1/4". Has a pair of 5" leads.

SMALL WHITE CHEF'S HAT
One Toque Over The Line
This white polyester chef's hat is approx 7" tall x puffy and has an adjustable hook-and-loop band but at the largest it's still pretty small, maybe a man's size 6-7/8. We think they're from a kid's nutritional program, and the max circumference is about 21", so check your noggin. Front band says "BellyFULL...eat happily ever after™."

$3.25 EACH
PINK FLAMINGO STUFFED ANIMAL
Not All Flamingos Are Hard Plastic
But they're all pink. This one is stuffed, plush and divine, approx 9" from throat to non-existent tail with 9" long floppy legs. Can't stand, but will look lovely perched on a desk, dresser or dashboard, or pinned to your shoulder for those special occasions. In, of course, polyester, which is also plastic!

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.

BROWN STAIN PEN
Stain Pen
For fixing minor scratches in furniture and cabinets, this felt-tip pen has a 3/16" wedge tip and holds a little under a third of an ounce of "provincial" stain, which some of us think is sort of walnut while others went with "chocolate milk." Think brown, but without any red notes.

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.
