The Accordion Bucket

Not to be confused with the bucket accordion, the least popular instrument of all time, this is a collapsible bucket, made of silicone with a hard plastic rim. Holds 1-1/3 gallons and stands 7-3/4" tall x 8-3/4" ID at the top, but collapses (accordions) down to less than 2" tall, including the folding handle. Has a little hanging tab at on the lip. Handy anywhere space is an issue, and dandy for boats. BPA-free, heat-resistant and slick as a wet otter, so stuff just slides out.

The Naked Dinosaur Mug

Sure, all dinosaurs were naked, but this 14-oz ceramic mug with a green exterior and white inside lets you see under their skin. Featuring pics of multiple dinos on the outside, when you pour in hot liquid, they shed their skin to show their skeletons. Probably some very simple science is involved, but it looks like magic to kids and copywriters. Measures 3-1/2" tall x 3-3/4" dia, with plenty of room for marshmallows. Dinosaurs loved marshmallows—that’s why a lot of them lived in marshes.

Silicone Bear Molds

Make your own silicone bears! The 7-1/2” x 5” molds are silicone, and they make (50) tiny, chewy bears, each in the gummy standard of 3/4” tall—and you’ll get (2) molds so you can make (100) bears at a time. (Hip yourself to the Internets, of course, for chewy gummy recipes.) Silicone is non-stick, heat- and cold-resistant, and both freezer- and oven-safe up to 450F degrees, so you can make frozen and baked bears. Also dishwasher-safe. Includes a small dropper for filling the molds, and the manufacturer doesn't mention it, but we wonder if, as an homage to your grandmother, you might be able to make teeny tiny ursine Jell-O molds.

Mood Sheet

See psychedelic patterns the safe way! Press your hand on this 6" x 6" sheet of liquid crystal and leave a print of swirling colors that, like the mood ring of yore, you can use as a sign of your mood. The pattern will blend and fade in seconds as the crystals react to temperature. Tiny liquid crystals inside the film-like material react to the heat of your hand, 25-30°C (77-86°F) by changing colors. As science, it demonstrates the way liquid crystal displays work. And you can cut each crystal sheet into pieces to incorporate into a science project. Or just leave it out for guests to play with when the party turns boring.
