We love these! You're going to love these! Your kids are going to love these! Hundreds of clear marble-sized bubbles can cover the floor, cling to the sides of furniture, land on your arm. They float enchantingly, rising on air currents you can't even feel. After a few seconds, the bubbles are hard enough to catch or stack. Some will still be perched in out-of-the-way spots a day later. Touchabubbles goop, thicker than the bubble-blowing liquid you're familiar with, comes in a 4" plastic test tube with a wand built into the cap, and a clip on the side so you can carry it in a shirt pocket. The goop is nontoxic, but it tastes really bad, and you probably won't want these landing on expensive tabletops, so kids under 8 should have adult help with them. They should be sharing the fun anyway!
Pre-roasted and inflatable. Lets you serve pizza or General Tso's chicken on holidays without sacrificing a lovely traditional table presentation. Measures 16" x 8" when blown up, which is from the neck end so you won't be embarrassed doing it. Bonus: it's from our Stuff To Stick In The Refrigerator series, so you'll be ready with a quick practical joke at a moments notice.
Inflate this rubber manta ray and he bulges in the middle. Squeeze him (or her--who can tell with a ray?) on top of the head and he’s a squirt gun (squirt-ray) who shoots water out of the blow hole in front. Black on top with a grayish belly. Measures 20” across x 12-1/2” snout to tail and just creepy enough to scare mothers if you leave him on the kitchen floor.
The Internets machine says the horned lizard is “not considered one of the all-time best lizard pets,” so if your mother won’t let you have one, we recommend this 6” long version in authentically colored polyresin. Sits there splayed out on its lizard belly staring semi-lovingly at you, but needing no aquarium, water or harvester ant dinners.
Dirt-cheap fun for the kids--at home and at school. Attach the (3) 5-1/2" long plastic blades to the whistling nozzle, blow up the little balloon and watch the world's cheapest helicopter fly away. Paul says it demonstrates Newton's third law, but he says a lot things. Great for classroom demos. Paul not included.
Well, nearly. This Gregor Samsa-ish bug--very clearly a cockroach--is a couple of inches shorter than Franz, but you still wouldn’t want to wake up looking like him. Inflates to 70” long x 26” wide x 6” thick. Nicely authentic with (6) legs, he’s a pool float, but “not a flotation device.” We can’t guarantee it, but we suspect that left on a kitchen floor in the dark, he just might get rid of that roommate who’s been eating your frozen yogurt in the middle of the night. Also nice to put in your sister’s sleeping bag.
