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.
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.

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.
UV light isn’t just for disco madness and seeing scary stuff in hotel rooms. This UV blacklight flashlight kit from TedcoToys® includes (9) activities for learning about blacklight science, UV light, luminescence, fluorescence and more, including “Sneaky Sleuth” activities.

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.
OK, glass with blue LEDs, but still. This is a Newton’s Cradle, always seen with steel ball bearings, but this time with frosted glass balls glowing a stunning bright blue while they swing on wires and prove Newton’s Third Law, and if you have to look that up you shouldn’t be reading this catalog in the first place. Just kidding--it says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. You knew that. Newton would have ordered multiples of this beauty for all of his friends. Measures 7-3/4" tall on a 7" x 6" base with the standard (5) globes. You add (6) “AA” batteries for the glow.
