Still in Kansas?

This is your classic dual-threaded connector tube to link a pair of plastic bottles together, demonstrate tornado action and learn once and for all about the fluid dynamics concept of a vortex. In an homage to Dorothy in Kansas, this connector tube also comes with a tiny cow and a barn included. Also a lot of glitter, which we suppose is Oz-like. Includes instructions and a surplus-inducing QR code (to see a video) that's as dead as the Wicked Witch of the West.

TANKS A LOT

Well, a pair, but that's a lot in the tank biz. This very cool kit has translucent green frames, pre-wired circuit boards and motor harnesses, and all of the steering and suspension parts you could shake a stick at. The result, despite the kit's "Titan Tank" name, is TWO 5" square x 3" tall wireless remote controlled tanks (with separate controllers) that fire invisible infrared shells at one another, and reverse direction when hit. Each controller has (4) channels, so if you buy (2) sets of (2), everyone can join in the action. Each Tank takes (8) AA batteries, that you supply, but remember they light up, shoot beams of IR, make noise, and move around, so you're getting a lot of bang for the battery. Includes a 15 page manual and circuit boards that are pre-assembled, so anyone from your 9 year old nephew to your tank commanding Grandpa should have an easy time assembling them.

Jarvis says: The regular retail on this was $64.95. Pat made a special buy, so don't delay, these won't last long.
