Moon Over My Armoire

This 4-3/4" dia moon is so much more interesting than the real thing. This one has a 4-way dimmer, flash/strobe/fast and slow fade/steady-on modes, plus internal LEDs to make (15) colors in addition to traditional moonish white. It's also a great nightlight. Remote control comes with a battery but you'll need (3) "AAA" batteries to run the moon. Topographical, but the giant astronaut footprint suggests it's not quite to scale. Will sit up by itself or wall mount on a couple of finishing nails.

Clearly Useful

Minimalism meets functionality. When nothing is hung on it, our clear-plastic key-shaped key holder, 10" long and about 4" at its widest point, blends right into the wall behind it. Very subtle. (6) 7/8" long L-shaped hooks fit through countersunk 3/16" square holes. You assemble it and supply the screws for the (2) 1/8" countersunk mounting holes. In theory, when it's mounted against the wall, the hooks are held in place. In practice, we suggest a bit of model glue at the base of each hook. Functionality aside, it's a cool giant key!

EVERYTHING BUT THE YELLOW

Our laser combo pack scores you two pen-shaped 5mW laser pointers, (1) each in stopping red and going green. These colors are also perfect for Christmas, St. Patrick's Day and St. Valentine's Day. Oh, and nautical situations. The housing is flat black or silver with a gold pocket clip and head. The 532nm Class IIIa green light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with a momentary-on switch. It's brighter than the red so it's perfect for all daytime pointer needs. The red is 5-1/4" long, and its mellow red light makes it more suitable for board room presentations but we've thrown ours two blocks at night, no problem. Green or red, whatever you do, don't cross the streams. Each pointer takes (2) "AAA" batteries, which are included.
