Perpetual Motion

Spin this spindle and watch it turn in perpetuity!!  Well, for a long time anyway.  Inside the 5-1/2" long colored plastic spindle are magnets which are repelled by magnets in the 5" x 3" black plastic base.  The variously colored spindle floats in the air above the base thus virtually free of normal friction. Nifty desk toy named "Revolution".

Please note #91664 with flashing red lights was incorrectly advertised, that item is not available.

AIR CANNON
NEW

Puff the Magic AirZooka

Great balls of air! The mighty AIRZOOKA is back--and as cool as ever! Looking like a plastic bucket with a handle and a flip-up gun sight, it blasts a puff of air up to 50 feet. Blow out candles from across the room (and avoid spitting on birthday cakes), spook the cat, disperse bugs, take target practice at styrofoam cups or buy a pair and play air-tag. Measures roughly 11” tall x 11” dia in bright blue plastic and is, frankly, much more fun than you would imagine.

PORTABLE AIR PISTOL
NEW

Pistolairo

It’s an actual air pistol, on account of it shoots a puff of air. Not unlike those giant air cannons, but in a manageable size, and better for office situations. Imagine the cubicle wars you could have with a few of these--and no one would get hurt! Range is approx 8 feet. Like the larger cannons do, this pistol will blow out birthday candles, but you’ll need much better aim. Measures a mere 3-1/2" x 2" with a rubber membrane, a 2-1/2” handle, and a folding sight.
