Good news for people who chew! We now can offer you the choice of creating your own chewing gum or chewy gummies, because we live in artisanal times, and store-bought chewy stuff is just too 20th century for words. You pick: the Chewing Gum Kit or Gummies Kit from Glee Gum of Providence, RI. Chewing Gum Kit includes chicle gum base plus sweeteners, cherry and grape flavors, instructions and a mixing tray. You’ll get enough to make (50) pieces of gum. The Gummies Kit has molding starch, cherry sugar, sour powder and powdered seaweed, the artisanal alternative to gelatin in the gummy game. The moulding starch lets you make your own gummy shapes at home.
The Pocket Rocket
Our micro rocket packs a lot of fun into a small package, much like hockey's original Pocket Rocket, Henri Richard, the 5' 7" brother of Maurice "The Rocket" Richard. Unlike Henri, this rocket's powered by baking soda and vinegar (not included), and actually flies quite high. Bullet-shaped, it's just 2-3/8" tall x 13/16" dia and sits on a launch base 2-3/4" tall x 3/4" ID. For rocket scientists over 5 years of age.
UV light isn’t just for disco madness and seeing scary stuff in hotel rooms. This UV blacklight flashlight kit from TedcoToys® includes (9) activities for learning about blacklight science, UV light, luminescence, fluorescence and more, including “Sneaky Sleuth” activities. You get the light, highlighters, paper and glow-in-the-dark slime, but you add (3) “AAA” batteries.
Geology for those with short attention spans? The original Magic Rocks®, of course! Mix the solution in a jar of water, drop in the pebbles, and watch them grow into a forest of multi-color stalagmites. Growth starts in 10 minutes, is impressive in 30 minutes, and complete (up to 4" tall) in 2 hours. Extra credit if you can make it grow stalactites by gluing the pebbles to the bottom of a jar, then pouring the solution in and turning it upside down. Who knows? Maybe it will work. Comes with a set of marine decals to decorate the jar. Definitely not for use with living fish. For ages 10 and up.
