Teleidoscope

The world is your kaleidoscope with a teleidoscope, which is to say that instead of a bunch of little pieces of glass and beads in a rotating case, there's a lens at the other end, in this case a big, clear glass marble making lovely patterns based on whatever you point it at. (Try it on a printed page.) Measures 1" dia x 8-1/4" long. The cardboard tube is covered with diffraction paper for a cool look. Assorted colors

Really Big T-Rex

Impressive, this 3-foot Lizard King. The 1:14 scale plastic model of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton has 51 bones that snap together, then snap apart easily for later use, which is more than you can say about the original. Measures 36" long, and comes with a display stand. Bones are nicely aged for paleontological verisimilitude. Very nice kit, with legs, as they say! For ages 8 and up.

Original Slinky

Does anyone need to be told what a Slinky(tm) toy is?? Okay, it is a very slack spring, 2-7/8" dia x 2-1/2" long, compressed. It will stretch out to about 5 or 6 feet long without deforming. That's the boring part. The interesting part is that it "follows" itself. Slosh it from hand to hand. Put in on the top step of stairs, flip the end down a step, and watch it walk down stairs, or down an incline. Believe us, no childhood (or adulthood) is complete without an original steel Slinky(tm). It was hard for us to find it, but we are glad we did. You should be too.

Soft & Cuddly Creepy Crawlers

You could go find the actual critters under the Antarctic ice, in space or eating rotten veggies in your garden, or you could just get our nice plush versions. Our cuddly bug collection includes: the fuzzy roly poly, called the pill bug, woodlouse and worse, that inhabits damp spots in your garden, but ours is 7” long in two-tone blue with a happy smile, perky ears and a tripartite tail; and the furry tardigrade, a fluffy version of a thing that’s normally darn-near microscopic, called a water-bear or moss piglet, that’s a bug relative--a crustacean that you don’t want in your bed. Our version is 9“ x 5” in powder blue plush, and it looks more like a six-legged furry hamster. These toys are considerably more pleasant than the real things, which your mother wouldn’t let you keep anyway. Plus they’re washable!

Feel Like A Little Fling?

Or maybe a little fling zing, oft described as a Chinese yo-yo, although that’s not a name we’d use, being sensitive and enlightened, which you can tell by reading our catalog. A fling zing is a roll of colorful waxed paper on a stick. Snap your wrist and watch it shoot out more than a yard for oddly compelling fun.
