What Has Six Legs & Follows You?

Zivko the Robot. Our best selling STEM kit ever! Just call her (or him--it’s unclear and we don’t like to ask) “Zivko” because “the Robot” is her last name. Using just a screwdriver and side cutters, you build Zivko from this 107-piece S.T.E.M. kit. Set the mode for “Follow Me” or “Explore,” and Zivko will, yes, track you, or evade obstacles, respectively, via an infrared sensor and micro-controller programming. Interactive LEDs and sounds abound. Measures approx 5" x 5-1/2" x 6-1/2" when assembled with all (6) legs. You add (4) “AAA”s for power, which is the least you can do for someone this cute. Ages 10+.

Break Your Own Geodes

Pop one of these roughly 1-1/4" dia stones into the toe of a sock, smash it with a hammer, and be the first person ever to see your real-as-Nature-makes-it geode!! Ninety percent of them have the familiar beautiful white crystals inside. Formed by volcanic action, they are found all over the world, but ours are from Mexico. There is no way to tell from the outside if they have crystal centers, but we will send you two just to raise your odds, and we haven't had a dud yet in our stores!! Much much more fun and satisfaction than buying one already cracked.

Is That A Back-Scratcher...

…in your pocket, or are you just itching to see us? Pure surplus—these small extension back-scratchers were promo items—"Elect Jim Flummer!” or “Nevada Financial Concepts,” among many, many others—with ball points at the other end and caps with pocket clips. Don't know what happened to Jim, or in Nevada, but we've got 'em now. Some pen inserts might be gone, they could be any color in the rainbow, and some could use a drop of glue to keep from over-extending when you pull them out. But let's not look a gift (practically) scratcher in the tines. Also dandy for raking the sand in your desktop Japanese garden.
