See The Future

We’re all out of crystal balls, but can we interest you in a UGears® Date Navigator kit? It’s a 21-piece interactive, kinetic, wooden puzzle that has labels for the year, month, date and day of the week. A kid can build it in about 20 minutes and then use it to reveal future mysteries, such as what day of the week someone’s birthday will be in the year 2036 (or any year up to 2044). Cool, huh? It’s not just a science project. They can also paint it (art!), making it their own personalized time machine (sort of). Circular, measuring approx 4” dia x 1” thick. Nice display piece for a desk or shelf. Pieces are pre-cut, so no glue or special tools needed. Ages 5+.

Lay Siege To The Doghouse!

Right after you build your own working medieval catapult or trebuchet. All you’ll need is glue, scissors and a steady hand (plus a small bag of marbles or rocks or something as a counterweight for the trebuchet) to construct these wooden, Canadian-made siege engine kits. The catapult stands 6” tall x 5” wide x 10” long and will toss assorted stuff 15 feet or farther, depending upon the stuff. The finished trebuchet will be 26” long x 18” wide x 24” tall and will propel small objects (meatballs?) 20 feet or more. Both include detailed instructions and are great resources for STEM activities. For ages 9+. Note: Please don’t propel small mammals, and please don’t put anyone’s eye out.

Chameleon Tape

Heat-sensitive duct tape changes color and gets lighter the more heat is applied, as from sunlight or your paws. Why, you ask? Billy, our social media guru, says if you ask why, you don't deserve it. Just accept that it's cooler than all of the other duct tape, especially if you make a prom dress or tux out of it. And yes, if you had a broken chameleon you could try fixing it with this, but don't tell anyone we said so. The orange-to-yellow tape is 1-7/8" wide and 30 feet long.
