This Avocado Might Spoil You

Who wouldn’t love a green avocado plush toy? Scrooge? Schleprock? Debbie Downer? They’re probably the only three, because the rest of us wouldn’t be able to resist this approx 15” x 10” x 5” two-tone-green avocado half with a beige pit for a face, brown eyes and a very happy red smile. There’s a little brown stem on top, too, and a hanging loop. Way softer than an actual avocado.

Boneless Chickens

You may well have wondered where the boneless chicken breasts in your local supermarket come from. The answer is from boneless chickens. And we have some life sized rubber models of the birds to prove it. Modeled from life, they are shown plucked and as they might appear hanging in the poultry store window. Seeing is believing, at least in Missouri, so get one and look.

Love Meter

AKA hand boiler. An exotic bit of hand blown glass with a bulb at top and bottom connected by some zippy tubing that spirals, loops, and/or jogs. In the closed system is some colored liquid (methylene chloride) that is very light. Hold the lower bulb in your hand and as the liquid is warmed it pushes through the loops to the upper chamber. When all the liquid is pushed out of the lower bulb, expanding air will bubble through the tubing making it appear that the liquid is boiling. WARNING! The glass is fragile and the liquid is nasty. If you drop the thing on the kitchen tile, it will eat the finish off the tile and the stain in the liquid will permanently stain the floor, so don't let kids handle this item unsupervised. About 7" tall, it is a favorite in our stores.
