Back To The Back Scratcher

It’s back. Once upon a carnival, the bamboo back scratcher was the prize every kid came home with and there wasn’t an unscratched back in America--unless the kid came home with a goldfish, which are worthless for scratching backs. Now you can return to those thrilling days of yesteryear with our high-quality, 19” long bamboo back scratcher, and you don’t even have to go to a carnival to get it.

Masseur On A Stick

The rubber bumps on the end of this rolling massager are in rows that rotate independently to rub you the right way. The (6) rubber bumps are in (7) 1-1/4” dia rows on a three-draw telescoping handle that extends from 13” to 23” long, so you can reach the soles of your feet or massage your cat. (Some cats like it, some don’t, so a little distance might be good.) Juanita uses hers for physical therapy.

DUAL SUCTION CUP HINGED PICK-UP TOOL
NEW

Soft Touch

And easy to store. One of the better pick-up tools we've seen. Folds to just over 16" to store, but locks open at 30" with spring steel arms on an aluminum frame. It has soft, suction-cup-shaped grabbers and big, locking pistol grip. Pretty good gripping capacity too-maybe to 10 lbs or so. Get one for Mom, because at her age she can't reach the things she used to. And then get another one for yourself, because you'll be Mom's age before you know it.

Get Ahead

In fact, get ahead with this particular head. You can practice your cosmetology skills on a face that won't scream if the tweezers go amiss. From BHD Beauty, this practice head is silicone rubber, approx 10” x 6-1/4” x 5-1/2”, with a flat back so it won't roll away on you when you set it flat on a table. Great for eyelash extension, makeup practice, facial massage or painting, and easy to clean using professional cleansing oil. You could also just hang it on the wall for a nice, creepy interior design effect. Pat says, “Hey—no weird smell!” which isn't always the case in the surplus game, or the rubber model practice head game.

Back Down?

That’s a bad back joke, which is no joke. These Dr. Ho hard plastic back braces are the same ones you’ve probably seen on the TV, curved to hold your spine in the correct position. We've got both pieces, front and back, but no straps to tighten them. You could add your own, or do as Pat does and put the back piece on your chair for the relief it provides. These are Dr. Ho's size medium, which fit Pat's 6-foot x 180-lb frame just right.
