Our robotic kingii dragon (Chlamydosaurus kingii, or frilled-neck lizard) is better than a puppy because you don't have clean up after it and it won't chew the furniture. This kit has (2) motors and digital control via IR sensors to activate LED eyes, motorized mouth and pop-out frill, plus "escape" and "approach me" modes, which retreat and make nice, respectively. You'll need (4) "AAA" batteries and some patience, as this kit is delightfully challenging. Finished dragon will be 13-1/2" long x 8-1/4" x 5". For ages 10+. Check out our short video on Youtube!
Drop some coins into this dog's dish and watch him get all wiggly wacky with barely controlled excitement while he gobbles your change and stores it in the base of the bank. You add a pair of "AA" batteries because animatronic dogs don't eat Alpo®. Pup is 3-1/2" tall on a 5-7/8" x 3-1/8" x 2-1/2" base. We'll pick a pup from our litter of assorted mongrels. See it in action. Click
Maybe. Could also be a stegosaurus, triceratops or something else--that’s part of the fun of paleontological parenthood. Just submerge the 4-1/2” tall ersatz dinosaur egg into cool water and wait 48-72 hours while it cracks like a real egg and the baby dino grows to a be a foot long. If your mother won’t let you skip your bath for a few days (they’re like that, mothers, no scientific discipline), just use any container bigger than a 12” dinosaur.
Behold our version of the gravity-fed sliding woodpecker. Ours is a 1-3/4" standard black woodpecker, not counting his cute red plume, slowly pecking his way down a 16-1/2" tall metal rod. His super-rapid, lifelike pecking action is strangely compelling to adults, and draws belly laughs from toddlers!
You may well have wondered where the boneless chicken breasts in your local supermarket come from. The answer is from boneless chickens. And we have some life sized rubber models of the birds to prove it. Modeled from life, they are shown plucked and as they might appear hanging in the poultry store window. Seeing is believing, at least in Missouri, so get one and look.
Ready to fulfill all of your unmet movable yeti needs, this 6-1/2" tall plastic bigfoot has articulated ankles, knees, hips, waist, shoulders and elbows, which makes him posable in more positions than Twyla Tharp.
From the world of Collect 'Em All, these uber-cute little foam animal figures are 1" to 1-1/2" across with a little 3" hook-n-loop band on the back so they can be attached to fingers, flip-flops, shoelaces, backpacks, wherever kiddies think they belong. You'll get (4) different ones from the selection of frogs, pandas, monkeys, elephants, kittens, bats, fishes, penguins and toucans.
Get creative with a half-dozen soft, cuddly, 4" tall stuffed kitties, cute as the dickens and with heads held on with hook-and-loop patches. Devise your own creative game to play with them (Pin the head on the pussycat.) or just ingeniously stick them around to surprise your friends and family. The label calls them "Stress Kittens" because, of course, having the option of changing your mind is a relief, even for a cat. You get (6) in black with a white belly, purrfect for rubbing.
The mouse is back! After an extended absence (due more to supply problems than to any rodent-eradication program) the gray rubber mouse is once again available. A hair under 3" long with a 4" long tail, he's diminutive and detailed -- and ready to move into Sis's underwear drawer!
