Half of the best stuff in the world comes in a can; the other half comes on a stick. (It’s true, don’t argue with us.) Now you get to pick from two kinds of canned fun, both in 5-5/8” x 4” x 2-1/4” deep cans with hinged tops. You pick. The Pranks in a Tin has straw finger traps, a whoopee cushion, nose & mustache glasses, a joy buzzer, the nail-through-finger trick with a bloody bandage, and a squirting ring. Go make a pre-adolescent happy. The Classic Games tin holds a standard deck of playing cards, rubber ball and (10) metal jacks, tiddlywinks with a small felt pad, (30) pick-up sticks, and (5) shooters plus (30) smaller glass marbles, and not an electronic game in the bunch.
This 6” long wire stripper/crimping tool has (7) positions to strip wire between 10 and 22 AWG, with a 3/8” cutting edge, serrated ends and a lock. Also has plastic-coated handles. Pat says they’re better quality than your average pair.
We don’t know for sure, but CJ, who claims to know about these things, says this thing looks like a pad for a boogie board. In an orangy red, it’s self-adhesive with a peel-off paper back. Made of 3/16” thick closed cell foam, measuring approx 32” long x 13” wide in a bullet/rocket shape.
Never gets old, that Lysistrata joke, does it? (Oh, just Google it.) This pocket-sized set of 1/4” hex bits comes with a 1” extension bit and 4mm, 6mm and 7mm slotted bits plus #1, #2, and #3 Phillips bits, all inside a thin flat little flip-out carrier. Bits may have some oxidation spots, which is why they're mighty cheap, too.
One--they’re made of laser-cut, press-fit wood so you don’t need tools or glue. Two--their working pistons and gears are so intricate and precise you might be surprised they’re just wood. Three--you’re tired of models that just sit there looking pretty. You pick: Pneumatic Engine or Mechanical Timer. Engine kit is (81) pieces at 1:87 scale. Add a simple balloon to operate its pistons. Finished model will measure approx 6-1/4” x 3” x 4” tall. Timer kit is (107) pieces and will be 6-7/8” x 3-3/16” x 10-1/16” tall, and run for (20) minutes on rubber bands. Moving gears are completely visible. Both kits made in Ukraine.
Yes, now you can truthfully tell people this. Just get this combo 10" long 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom slash AM radio and you’re in business. The power knob/volume control in the right-side spare tire is frozen, but if you’re handy you can fix it and then truthfully say “I just fixed the radio in my ’31 Rolls Phantom.” These radio-models are from the mid ’70s, and in their original boxes so they might be a tad tarnished, bumperwise, but they’re still your chance to work on, and own, a Rolls.
New Sudokun hope for the English major or art student in your life. This clever, non-numeric Sudoku puzzle uses colors instead of numbers on the (9) 2” cubes with 1/2” squares. Position them in the tray so that no two colors are adjacent, and you win. Has two trillion (2,000,000,000,000) combinations and over 500,000 solutions. For ages 8 to adult, but frankly we don’t know why. From ThinkFun®.
Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when people carried change in these 3" long elliptical rubber coin purses, which looked like talking puppet lips when you squeezed them. We’ll send you a trio of them in some combination of black, red, blue or yellow, because loose change doesn’t care.
Now you can share your music with your friends, Romans, countrymen, and even strangers on a train. Just plug your buds into the standard 1/8” headphone jacks and you’ll both be tuned in. Slides into a little black rubber case that has a 7/8” slip ring so you can hang it on whatever. Bonus: the bottom of the case is a touch stylus. We’ll pick one in red, black, green, blue, pink or purple.
