Capacitor Quartet

SOLAR CAR COOLER
Suck Out The Bad Air!
You say it's 235° inside your parked Deusenberg in Phoenix? You say your kid's sippy cup melted while you were in the video store? You need this solar-powered car ventilator. Hook it over a window, power the window up and let the sun activate the solar panel and run the 3" dia fan, which sucks the hot air out of the car and vents it outside. Also great for eliminating pet and tobacco odors. The whole thing measures 6" wide x 4-3/4" x 2-3/8", with a slim 1/4" x 1" x 6" long piece outside the window. Includes 1" wide weather-stripping to seal it.

Kit has (2) cups, a bottle, rocket and stand, two-part sphere, funnel and kid-sized safety glasses along with a little baking soda and (14) seltzer tablets.

SCREW EYES
Screw Hooks And Eyes
Actually, we like hooks and eyes, especially when they have screws on the other end and they're great for hanging stuff from. You choose. Our 1-3/8" long steel screw eyes have 3/8" IDs. You'll get (2) packs with (10) screw eyes in each, which will hang up to (20) things--and we did that math all in our head. Our 4" long screw hooks have a 1" ID and we've got them because the package says they're 4-1/8" long. Ain't surplus wonderful? You'll get (2) packs, or (4) hooks altogether. Let the hanging begin.

MAGNETIC LEVITATION TRAIN KIT
Soap-Box Derby Goes Magnetic

GLASS HAND BOILER TOY
Prove You're Hot Stuff
Hold the bottom onion-shaped bulb of this 4" glass toy in your hand and watch the liquid (green, red, blue or purple, we'll pick) magically bubble up into the top chamber and keep on bubbling like the dickens, as your grandmother used to say. The magic is ethyl alcohol and physics. WARNING! The glass if fragile and the liquid is nasty. If you drop the thing in the kitchen it will eat the finish off the tile and permanently stain the floor, so don't let the kids handle this item unsupervised.

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.
