Glow-in-the-dark plastic skeleton, about 1 ft. tall. That is the end result. What you get is a box of bones that you snap together to create the final product. Which is kind of fun. Or of course you can leave some or all of them disassembled to create a sense of havoc. We're not going to claim it is anatomically correct, or educational. But you do need to figure out that feet don't grow from shoulders and thigh bones do not connect to jaw bones. Maybe 5 minutes of fun!! And the finished product is one of our better little Halloween guys.
Earth science rocks. Start your young scientists off with one of these rock kits from GeoCentral®. The basic rock kit has (15) examples of metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous rock; the mineral kit has (15) samples of things beyond simple rockness, such as quartz, alabaster and talc; fluorescent rock kit has (9) examples of (7) rocks that glow, including lapis lazuli and green fluorite, plus a UV penlight. All include an 11-page booklet, magnifier and a streak plate.
As big as our can? This particular can holds (80) glow-in-the-dark stars, planets (ringed and plain), shooting stars and nebulae, along with foam tape for mounting and a 16-1/2" x 7-1/2" constellation chart. But wait, there’s more: also includes a UV keychain light and a tin to keep the galaxy in, which is why it’s named “Galaxy in a Tin.”
More goose-sized than chicken-sized at 3-3/4" tall x 2-3/4" max dia, this soft, translucent-rubber egg glows with color. It can be set to stay one hue, or to change very slowly from purple through blue, green, orange and red to purple…. Very Zen. Or very cute in an Easter basket. Runs on (3) replaceable button-cell batteries, included.
It’s called Thinking Putty® because while you do whatever you want with it, your brain relaxes and opens up to all kinds of creative thinking. Need it? Yes. And you can also knead it. Or bounce it, bend it, tear it, stretch it, snap it, pop it. Pick from the 3.2 oz of dark green magnetic Strange Attractor putty with iron filings infused in it, plus a 1/2” cubed rare earth magnet; the 3.2 oz glimmering light green Foxfire putty that you can draw on with the included blacklight keychain light; or the Super Scarab, 3.2 oz. of color-shifting blue/purple/copper/red putty reminesent of Egyptian scarabs. Comes in a 4” dia x 1-3/8” tin.
Enough to decorate a big ceiling, or make a really special nightgown. These (60) flat, plastic stars measure 3/4" across and glow in the dark, not unlike the real thing. Includes a pack of tiny double-sided adhesive mounts.
Get all festive in the dark with this 144-piece party pack of (66) glow sticks, 3/16” dia in 1-1/2”, 4”, 6’, 8”, and 10” lengths (40 feet in all) plus connectors, cords, caps and clips. Sticks glow yellow, pink, orange and white. About the size of drinking straws, from super-short to extra-long. Non-toxic, but don’t rip ’em open or they might stain your party frock. Shake and snap to start, and you’ll get an hour or so of glowishious fun.
You can trust the moon--there are no investment advisors there. This moon is 4-5/8" dia in polyresin, glows in the dark and has a coin slot, unlike the real one. Includes a lunar fact sheet and, as a bonus, a 3/16” long piece of an actual meteorite from the Campo De Cielo crater in Argentina.
Tween alert. Let them braid their own glow-in-the-dark bracelets from this kit. Includes (9) skeins of assorted colored thread, (2) of which glow, or enough to make a dozen bracelets. Also has (8) templates (half of them square, half round), a foam bracelet wheel and (20) hunks of double-sided tape, plus instructions.
