This great little kitchen-themed play set includes a 13” x 8” faux sink and burner that make gurgling and sizzling sounds supplied by a pair of “AAA” batteries that you add. Includes a small plastic fry pan (with an extra-fun fried egg), a pop-top can, milk carton, orange, apple, hunk of cheese and a little thing with a door and buttons that might be a microwave--all perfect to occupy and delight the mind of a child. Made to slide onto a high-chair in another life, like a busy-box, but needs some light adapting.
These here are modern-day replicas of old timey metal signs with rows of light bulbs inside. They’re still in black steel, but smaller, and with little round bulbs with yellow-white LEDs (to mimic incandescents, we think) inside, so they’ll light up longer than you will, probably. You pick: the arrow sign is 13-1/2" x 7" x 2" with (8) bulbs, and will point up, down, right or left, depending on how you hang it; or the dollar sign, 13-7/8" x 7" x 2" with (11) bulbs, and it’s the same upside down as right-side up. You add a pair of “AA”s for power. Both hang from keyed slots on the back.
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.
You say you don’t have a cottage on a lake? Can’t afford a jet ski anyway? No problem. Just crank up your 4-1/2" long, twin-prop remote control jet ski and run laps in the hot tub or kids’ pool. Has a 50-foot range and is available with 27MHz and 49MHz frequencies. Includes a removable rubber rider. You add one “AAA” battery for the unit and (4) “AA”s for the remote.
This one’s not aluminum, and his didn’t have a 3-part spice shaker or a little cutting board with a strainer in the corner. This (8)-piece kit has both, inside a dark brown 7-1/2" x 5" x 2-1/8” plastic case. The top is a 1-3/4” deep plate/bowl with a hand-hold, while the bottom is another slightly shallower plate/bowl. Also has that shake and strainer-board plus a 9-oz cup, and a stainless steel knife, fork and spoon set.
Ceiling fans often have lights, but they aren’t lights, so don’t try to slow them down with a light dimmer rheostat. Do the right thing and get a fan controller. In a cream/off-white color, these are sized for standard electrical boxes and will need 1-3/8” back clearance. You pick: the dual slide fader for up to a 2.5A fan and a 300W light fixture; or the single slide for fan only, rated for 5A. Both include instructions, wire nuts and mounting screws. UL.
Fold it just right and it looks like a square-billed toucan. Never mind. It’s actually a nice acrylic 2X folding magnifier. Lens measures 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" with a 3/4” dia 6X inset window and (2) white LEDs, the better to see by. Handle swings to (4) positions, including out of the way. You add a pair of “AAA” batteries.
For pre-soldering-age kids with electronic interests (and maybe an artistic bent), this swell kit has hunks of conductive clay in orange, black, green and blue plus some ordinary white clay for insulation. Includes (20) assorted blue, yellow, green and white LEDs, a battery holder and a 52-page book for making (15) projects, although they’ll just be a start. You add a quartet of “AA” batteries and an inventive kid.
