WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-Small Parts. Not For children under 3yrs.
Nothing wrong with high-tech toys, but this pack of classics includes the low-tech stuff that a kid can put in his or her pocket when there’s not a frog handy. How about a 2-1/2” red egg filled with Silly Putty™, plus a 3” diving submarine that will dive and surface a dozen times on a single charge of baking powder, plus a gyroscope with a 2” flywheel that will allow for effortless balancing tricks, plus a half-pound of colorful glass marbles (about 35 total) in assorted sizes from 9/16” to 1-5/16”? Yeah, we know--we want to be kids again, too.
Wooden You Rather Use Wood?
Who woodn’t, really? In a world of plastics, it’s hard to beat a model fashioned from pieces of dead trees. You pick from our assortment of pre-cut unfinished wood models made for ages 8+, and all you add is wood glue, paint, sandpaper and simple hand tools: the 12-piece drag racer will measure 6-3/4” long x 2” tall; the 35-piece steam engine will measure 7-3/8” long x 4-3/8” tall; and the 46-piece stage coach will be 8-7/8” long x 5-7/8” tall. (Sorry, no horses.)
All the hip kids have them because who wants to have to make their own fun when they could make a robot to have fun for them. You pick: the Doodling Robot saves you from having to draw stuff on your notebook during meetings. Includes red, blue and yellow markers to mount on (3) adjustable arms on a 3-3/4” base with a DC motor powered by a “AA” battery you provide. Spins and shakes to doodle better than you ever did, and includes arm extensions to vary the patterns. Or: the Table Top Robot crab that’s smart enough not to fall off the table. Measures approx 2” tall x 3-3/8” counting its claws x 6-5/8” counting its (8) legs. You add a “AA” battery. Both are easy to assemble.
Or maybe not. Hotel managers get funny about rocket launches, but this is NASA-level fun for the backyard, or maybe a cheap motel parking lot. The Stomp Rocket™ uses no batteries, fuel, diet cola or anything else but your feet. And good stomp on the 4" X 8" "Blast Pad" can get you 200 feet of lift at speeds up to 100mph. You get (4) bright yellow plastic rockets, 9" long x 7/8" dia, with soft, round nose cones (bulbs?) for safety's sake, and a tripod gantry. Fine adjustments even allow for accuracy contests. If the neighbors have really high roofs, or you manage to achieve orbit, we've got a (2) pack of replacement rockets.
