A real desktop mesmerizer. This 7"x 5" moving sand sculpture creates endless sand-dune vistas, and can be so easily flipped to start over that you need never go back to actually working. The sand is so fine it's nearly liquid, and comes in varying shades, plus a little glitter. Black base and frame. We'll pick sand in shades of orange, purple, green or red for you.
Here’s a new way to wake up. The Bedol Water Clock™ is a digital alarm clock that uses only water to ionize and power itself. Shaped like a cross between a Manta ray, Stealth Bomber and a plastic pita bread, the 3-5/8" X 1-1/4" console is cobalt blue and silver with an LCD display featuring time, date, and alarm functions. Measures 9-3/4" x 6-1/4" x 2-5/8" overall and the mfg claims it’ll run a half-a-year on a single fill. CJ warns that if you have dirty water or live near a fracking zone, use bottled water--and he’s not kidding.
This carved and painted trio of wooden ducks came in from Indonesia (and boy, are their arms tired). Measure 9”, 7” and 5-3/4” long, respectively, and they’re made to sit on a mantel or shelf with their necks extended out and down, overhanging the edge, so they stare at you, as ducks will. You can even put them in a row if you want.
Now comes this ball of geometric possibilities, from creativity guru Roger von Oech. Perfect for anyone with a 3-dimensional mind, from a precocious child to a bored nonagenarian, including your favorite artist, mathematician, designer, engineer, or whatever. The little red ball, 3-1/4" dia, comprises (30) magnetized right golden rhombic pyramids that will fit together in endless shapes, from a rhombic triacontahedron (see the pic), to stars, wreaths, animals, sunbursts, and endless others. Comes with a 96pp booklet on geometric possibilities and creativity. Plenty of desktop noodling fun, but a lot more than just a toy.
