Intro To Lotto Tickets?

It's a mug's game, but this package of (4) giant scratch-and-reveal Magic Unicorn and Magic Bird cards are all winners. And no, NBA fans—they’re not related to the two guys who revitalized the league in the 1980s. And yes, everyone else--all unicorns are indeed magic. Precut in the shapes of birds and unicorns, the cards are approx 4-5/8” x 6-1/2”. The Bird kit comes with (4) striped pipe-cleaner chenille stems (for making their legs, of course), and both kits come with a scratch stick and an illustration sheet to show you how to scratch lines and designs to reveal the hidden colors.

How Tight Is Your Hema?

Keep your magnetic hematite. Keep it tight! And keep it close because word on the street is, it has potential healing powers, or at least the ability to possibly-maybe boost your mood. At the very least, the specimens we have are great for the fridge or the side of a file cabinet. They have a super-stylish and refined shiny-pewter look, and they’re each about 3/4" to 7/8" x 1/2" thick. Plus, they look super-cool in bunches. Takes about (25) of them to weigh 1 lb, and you’ll get a dozen per order. Never hurts to have some nice, small reliable magnets hanging around--especially these, which won’t lose their pull in your lifetime.
