Mooooo!

This is your chance to own a genuine cow magnet. Fed to cows by vets and farmers to attract the odd metallic parts of cows' diets (they tend to scarf up nails, staples and other stuff with the grass) and prevent bovine traumatic reticuloperitonitis, also known as hardware disease. Used for lots of magnetic lab experiments because they're so handy. In plated alnico, 3" long x 1/2" dia in a rounded tubular shape. Approx a 5-lb pull.

CELESTIAL INSPIRATION

The planets. You can own them. These wood balls with holes drilled in them (but not through them) were meant to be planets and moons for a solar system model. Do it yourself. You and your kids will learn a lot more than if you bought a kit that does all the thinking for you. Some balls are painted bright colors, some are varnished natural wood. Most have at least one 1/4" hole, some have smaller holes. They could also be joints and/or finials for some kind of dowel construction. Nothing to stop you from drilling new holes for a truly custom project.
