Drinking Bird
warning WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-Small Parts. Not For children under 3yrs.
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.

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.

Time Is Running Out...
Like the days of our lives, the sand in these large glass timers is running out. You pick the hour-glass in a double teardrop shape with blue sand, which takes approx an hour to empty (nothing was certain in the pre-digital age, my friend), and stands 11-1/4" tall x 4" dia; or the three-chamber half-hour glass that measures 9" tall x 3-3/16" top and bottom, with red sand. Keep one on your desk and no one can accuse you of being a clock-watcher, or use it anywhere you'd rather not hear a beep.
$21.95 EACH
Time was, these service bells were on every teacher's desk and the front desk of every hotel in the world. They're still a classically beautiful design, and they'll still bring folks running when you tap the little plunger on top. The shiny matte chrome bell sits on a fire-engine red enameled steel base and the whole thing is 3-1/8" dia x 2-1/4" tall.
