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.
Must have been, because we’ve got licensed, official Star Wars™ X-Wing Fighter and Tie Fighter models in laser-cut wood. The X-Wing has (73) plywood pieces and will measure approx 5” x 4-3/8” x 7/8”. The Tie Fighter has (63) pieces and measures nearly square 3-3/8” x 4-1/2”. Both include step-by-step assembly instructions and coloring ideas, and come with a 32-page booklet written by Michael Kogge. Both are press-fit models with no glue or tools needed. For ages 12+, they’re complex and perhaps not for clumsier earthlings. Made for Incredibuilds™ and the Disney Company.
Our electronic MadLab bagpipe kit will slip into your shirt pocket or sporran. No plaid lower garments required, and, as usual, undergarments are up to you. This nice starter electronics kit has a transistor-based oscillator and 8-position stylus-activated “keyboard.” Output is via a piezo disc. Minimal soldering skills needed, and assembly should take under an hour. Add a 9V battery for power and you’ll be thrown out of class, or recruited into battle, within the first six notes.
Technically true, but what we really have here is a 12-foot extension cord that plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter and has an identical female cigarette light/accessory plug on the other end for remote powering of any of those myriad big-plug devices, like vacuums, air compressors or power inverters. Don’t go camping or tailgating without one.
These 2-1/2" wide spring-loaded steel hinges have a 3-3/4" long plate with (4) 3/16” mounting holes and another 2” long plate with (2) 3/16” mounting holes. Open to approx 300 degrees. The spring keeps them in the open position and we believe they were made for luggage compartment doors on a plane or train (sorry, not an automobile). Yes, you could remove the springs.
Inside a two-tone folding pouch is a small, 28-page lined notebook and an 8-digit calculator with percent and square-root functions. Perfect for the traveling investigative auditor. Calculator is powered by a small solar cell. The whole shebang measures 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” x 1/2” thick with a little tab to hold a pencil that isn’t there. Made in Germany, where they keep track of everything, and yes, the calculator slides right out.
This carved and painted trio of wooden ducks came in from Indonesia (and boy, are their arms tired). Measure 9”, 7” and 5-3/4” long, respectively, and they’re made to sit on a mantel or shelf with their necks extended out and down, overhanging the edge, so they stare at you, as ducks will. You can even put them in a row if you want.
Or Jell-O. You’ll never get tired of using this plastic gelatin/ice mold to make those family get-togethers just a tad more festive. (Particularly apt for graduation parties.) Measures an 8-1/4” long x 2-5/8” oval, which is pretty much actual size. And like real brains, not dishwasher-safe. But easy to clean by hand, and worth it.
