ITEMS JUST OFF THE TRUCK

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.

$7.95 EACH
UGLYDOLL™ LUNCHBOX
Ugly Lunchbox
In old-timey tin, it features a whole bunch of Uglydoll™ characters, including a large blue Ice Bat on the cover. Box measures 7-3/4" x 6" x 3-3/8 with a clasp and carrying handle. They're calling it a "keepsake box" but that's not for you, that's for people who don't have the confidence to carry an ugly lunchbox. We have no clue as to why it carries a choking hazard warning, but it does.

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.

UGLYDOLL™ ROCKET RIDE
Uglydolls™ Go To The Carnival
A triumph of retro-hipsterism. This 8" tall tin rocket ride looks like a post-WWII carnival toy but the riders are all Uglydolls™, which who doesn't love? It's "super awesome," it says, and we agree. Spins via an internal spring mechanism. The only non-metal parts are the mylar propellers, the better for the spinning. Click here for video.

$10.95 EACH
CLEAR-WINDOW HEART-SHAPED TINS
The Tin Man's Heart
It could be a tin man's heart, but it's definitely a heart-shaped tin, man. Measures 2-1/4" x 2-1/8" x just over 1" deep, in, yes, a heart shape, with a clear plastic window in the lid. Holds about (3) tablespoons worth of whatever.

MINI 120V NEON LAMPS
Tiny Green Neon
These itsy 120V neon lamps have negligible current draw and green sleeves over the lenses. Leads are 4-1/2" long with an on-line limiting resistor on one. Made in the USA.

OPTICAL ILLUSION PUZZLES
Your Optics Will Illude You
Fun with optical illusions. This set of (3) cardboard classic illusion puzzles is entertaining and educational at the same time, like our catalog. You get an updated Sam Lloyd's vanishing puzzle, a vanishing area paradox puzzle and the Jastrow illusion from 1889. You probably feel smarter already.

$6.50 EACH
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.
accent
$4.50 EACH
OLD WORLD KALEIDOSCOPE
Renaissance Kaleidoscope
Forget that the 6-3/4" long body is festooned with Latin phrases and old maps. The stones/beads/glass inside the tube would make designing windows in cathedrals a snap. And hey, that's good work if you can get it. A nice gift for Rosetta window fans, and a must for that special bishop in your life.
