Remember those old school vibration football games, or those fantastic days-of-yore vibrating beds in roadside motels? This is like that, a small vibration motor (10mm dia x 2.5mm) that’s touch-sensitive and produces a pleasant buzzy response. Motor has 1-1/4" power leads, draws approx 60mA at 3VDC. Has 0.75g vibe amplitude. Self-adhesive pad on one face. No shaft.
Faux full-sleeve tattoos at a tiny fraction of the cost of the real thing, not to mention the easy, two-second removal. Our temp tats are a stretchy 16” long and 3-1/4” wide in lightweight Lycra® and are very realistic at even close range. We’ll pick one (although we recommend getting two for obvious reasons) from a vast array of patterns and themes, all guaranteed to drop Mom onto the fainting couch at first sight. They end at the wrist, but feel free to ink LOVE and AS&S on your knuckles with one of our markers.
Not a bucket for giant popcorn, which doesn’t exist (yet), but a giant BPA-free plastic bucket, 8” tall x 7-3/4” dia, that you’re supposed to put popcorn in, which we know because it says “POPCORN” on the side, along with a popcorn graphic background. We’re putting chips in ours because we’re like that.
You should never snip a real stork but if you do embroidery, cutwork or other fancy seamstering, you’ll recognize these small, 3-1/2” long, stork-shaped scissors as the specialty cutters you need for that sort of work. Their tiny, 3/4” long super-sharp points will snip all the way to the tip.
Actually it means polyvinyl chloride, but PVC tape is the choice when you need a non-corrosive pipe wrap or something similar. Peels clean, conforms to awkward shapes, is water resistant and flame retardant. Also stretchy. Our each is (150) feet of 3/4” wide red PVC tape on a 1-1/2” core.
Keep those sticky notes together and unpeeled with this bitsy spiral-bound notebook filled with (3) stacks of approx (25) 3” x 2” sticky notes plus approx (125) 2” x 5/8” skinny sticky slips, all in neon green, pink, yellow, orange and blue.
These elbow pads feature water resistant digital camo cordura nylon sleeves, have thick foam padding on the exterior with plastic shells on the points for added protection and a full length neoprene sleeve on the inside of your arm for comfort and flexibility. Measure 10” long x a nominal 4” ID but are elastic and stretchy enough to slide over the largest forearms around here. Hook-n-loop straps on the ends tighten them. Recommended for skateboarders, dirt-bikers, riot duty, paint-gun fun and shopping those big-box store mega sales. Made in the USA.
In the traditional arch-top piratical shape, this mini-chest measures 4-3/4” long x 3” tall x 2-3/8” deep with a hinged top and a little gold-tone clasp in front. In sanded but unfinished pine, ready to decorate. Handy for small presents (gift cards sit up nicely inside), cleverly and classily displaying business cards, storing jewels or interring gerbils.
Leonardo DaVinci didn’t work so hard to come up with his brilliant devices just so we could forget about them 500 years later. Get this DaVinci pack of (4) wooden model kits of his machinery and understand the genius. The classic catapult, approx 9” tall, uses the tension from (2) bent arms to power the spring and throw a clay ball over (13) feet. The ornithopter has an approx 24” wingspan and comes with a 15th century crash test dummy. The aerial screw helicopter has a canvas canopy and measures approx 15” tall on a 9” square base when complete; and the trebuchet, another launching device, measures approx 12-3/4” x 4-1/2” and 24” tall. Of course, it comes with a clay ball to shoot, too. All are great for STEM activities and learning.
