The Electric Butterflies

A failed folk-rock group from the Summer of Love? No, a trio of pretty lepidoptera oscillating through many colors via the magic of fiber optics. They have a 3" wingspread and sit on a 1-1/2" dia base that holds the (3) included and replaceable button-cell batteries inside. You'll get (3), at least (2) different, along with self-adhesive tape to stick them somewhere. We like them as party lights, but they'd also be great on a hat.

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.

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.
