Home-Grown Are Always Best

We’d start with triops, lovely little crustacean-ettes with compound eyes that have been around since Triassic days. You pick the Ghost Triops, see-through honeys, or the larger Gigantic Triops, the biggest of the triops which is gigantic among lesser beasts. In both cases you get eggs, baby and adult food, and a pipette. You add a bright light source, bottled natural spring water and a small tank. They hatch in a day or three, are full grown in a month or so, and have a life-cycle of up to 90 days.  Ages 8+.

Musical Prismatic Nightlight

OK, pay attention. This is a plug-in nightlight with red, green and blue LEDs that shift through a 2” dia prism while a small speaker plays lullabies via a recordable micro SD card. Some folks here say it put them into an ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) state. See for yourself. The light is gentle and random, not music driven. You can record your own lullabies, or bedtime stories, or Hall & Oates if they help you sleep. The micro SD card comes in an SD adapter and will fit your devices. Has volume and playback controls and a light sensitive "eye" for auto on/off when it gets dark or light. Measures 3-7/8" x 2-5/8" x 2". Now go to sleep.

At Long Last, Hands-Free Soup

The under-powered can opener we call it. This electric can opener takes (2) "AA" batteries but is as weak as the old "My dog ate my homework" excuse, so we suggest using it for parts instead of trying to open cans of soup with it. Or better yet, find a way to add another "AA" Battery. It has great parts either way. A six-way set of meshing gears and arms, a 3VDC 90mA/220mA motor that spins approx 5K (torqued out), and two-piece plastic case. Great for DIYers, hobbyists, small-motor heads or thin cans of soup. Not sold as a working kitchen can opener.
