Single-Shot Holstein

You take the Moo Popper, an open-mouthed 6" tall rubber Holstein, stick one of the (6) 1-1/8" dia chartreuse (or grass-colored?) foam balls in its mouth, give its bovine belly a good squeeze and it expels the ball across the room. Harder you squeeze, farther it flies. Impressive ballistics, good clean fun and an educational look at dairy farming practices all at the same time. Sorry, no fully automatic cows are available.

Five-Finger Puppets

Well, three puppets that each use all five fingers. OK, four fingers and a thumb. Stick a rubber foot on three fingers and a thumb, then pop the head onto your middle finger, and you’re a walking, talking panda, tabby cat or unicorn. You pick. And you do the talking, of course. Bound to amuse the kiddles, and probably give you hand-cramps, but who ever said puppetry was painless?

This one has a 4-way dimmer, flash/strobe/fast and slow fade/steady-on modes, plus internal LEDs to make (15) colors in addition to traditional moonish white. It's also a great nightlight. Remote control comes with a battery but you'll need (3) "AAA" batteries to run the moon. Topographical, but the giant astronaut footprint suggests it's not quite to scale. Will sit up by itself or wall mount on a couple of finishing nails.

They’re actually stuffed and furry Tomte or Nisse, depending on whether they’re Swedish or Norwegian, and they’re not saying.

Drinking Bird

You're buying the drinks and this wacky, yet debonair, bird with a top hat and plastic base (7" tall OA) can't get his fill of water. Get him started, and he dips his beak into your glass repeatedly. How? Fluid inside his glass body condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird's beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water. The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird's bulb, and he tips up again. Process continues indefinitely. It works, but it's not any more than moderately well made, and not any more than moderately priced. WARNING! The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird's glass body can easily be broken. Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great. But they should watch him, not fondle him!! Manufacturer warning states this item is not intended for children 8 and under.
