ITEMS JUST OFF THE TRUCK

CONSUMER SURPRISE BOX
SURPRISE!!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!! Mystery boxes of stuff like what you see in the catalog. Maybe we had a little left but not enough to continue the listing. Maybe we only got a few as part of an odd lot. Maybe we lost some, and just found them in the warehouse. You will get items which originally listed for at least $25.00 total in our catalog (or would have, if we had enough). You pick. The “electro-mechanical” box has things like motors, switches, hardware and components that are useful parts but want to be worked into something bigger. The “consumer” box has more ready-to-go   type items, and things that don’t have as technical a flavor, like bottles, toys, books, and giant  rubber bands. The fun is in the mystery and surprise. Perfect if you don’t know what to give Aunt Maude and Uncle Ned, or if you can’t decide how to bring your order up to the minimum. Every couple of months the contents will keep changing, so even if you have gotten a box before, feel free to order again! (Please note: Ordering multiple boxes at the same time will result in duplicate items.)

SNAP BRACELETS
Snap Goes The Bracelet
Easy as slapping the cuffs on a 12-year-old, these rainbow/tie-dye-ish colored steel snap (or slap) bracelets are a perennial tween favorite, and remain hot among folks who were tweenish when the wrist adornments came out. (You know who you are.) Measure 9" long x 1-1/4" wide. You'll get enough to double-wrap five tween wrists.

MOUNTED ILLUMINATED FRESNEL LENS
Fresnel On A Stick
Nice reading aid or hands-free magnifier for fine work, this 7-1/8" x 4-7/8" acrylic Fresnel lens is mounted on a 9" gooseneck attached to a stable U-shaped base. A pair of white LEDs are at the bottom of the lens housing, powered by (4) button-cell batteries, included and replaceable. Magnification is approx 1.5X but increases a bit as you move the subject farther from the lens.

GEOSAFARI® JR.® KIDS MICROSCOPE
Kiddlescope
My First Microscope from GeoSafari® Jr.® is a colorful plastic 8X binocular inspection scope for pre-preschoolers. Includes a built-in white LED top illuminator, over-sized rubber eyecups and simple focus knob. Fixed stage holds flat or 3D objects, so there's no need for slides. All you add is (3) "AAA" batteries and a bunch of stuff for them to peer at, like insects and coins.

WIDE-MOUTH 250ML  BOTTLES
Sky Cap
These clear wide-mouth PETE bottles hold 250ml (approx 8-1/2 oz) and measure a 3" x 2" oval at the bottom x 4-1/2" tall tapering to a 1-5/16" ID mouth and a gasketed sky blue plastic screw cap.

MICROFIBER EYEGLASS CLEANING CLOTH
Self-Storing Microfiber
Cute 6" square, blue microfiber lens/eyeglass cleaning cloth is attached to and stuffs into a tiny pouch that's got a little plastic clip on it so you could, yes, clip it to something. Used to be a promo for Costa Del Mar sunglasses ("see what's out there") and we suppose it still is.

MINIATURE REMOTE CONTROL DRONE
Let's Hover
Drone Dads are the new helicopter parents, and everybody who's anybody has a personal drone. Get overhead with The Quadraceptor, an indoor/outdoor remote-control miniature drone, 6" x 5" x approx 1-1/3" thick, with (4) props, a built-in gyroscope chip, and both headlights and color LED running lights. Flies up, down, left, right, forward, backward sideways and does 360-degree flips. R/C is 2.4 GHz, has (4) channels so you can fly a fleet, and has a 150-ft range, which should reach your boss's office.

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.

MILITARY SNOW SHOES
Magnesium Kicks For Bigfoot
Our each is a pair of magnesium snow shoes from the U.S. Military. Definitely not available at your local Feets Locker. Measure 46" long x 12" at their widest with a frame around woven cable construction, and you'll get buckled bindings and instructions with them. Non-snowbound? They look really cool on the wall. You could also invent a dandy squash-like racquet game with these, or make a catcher's mask for your horse. We don't have many of these in stock -- so hurry!
