Disposabowls

Lightweight, disposable, cream-colored LDPE bowls! These shallow 8 oz LDPE bowls are 1-3/8” deep, and a bit over 5” dia at the top. They were, we think, intended to be used on deli trays, but we won’t make a food-safe claim. We’ll suggest that they’re a good shape for holding bits and pieces during craft sessions, a nice size for mixing small amounts of paint during art classes, and are cheap enough to either recycle or toss out when you’re done.

Drinking Bird

You're buying the drinks and this wacky, yet debonair, bird with a top hat and plastic base (7" tall OA) can't get his fill of water. Get him started, and he dips his beak into your glass repeatedly. How? Fluid inside his glass body condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird's beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water. The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird's bulb, and he tips up again. Process continues indefinitely. It works, but it's not any more than moderately well made, and not any more than moderately priced. WARNING! The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird's glass body can easily be broken. Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great. But they should watch him, not fondle him!! Manufacturer warning states this item is not intended for children 8 and under.
