LEGO® CRAZY ACTION CONTRAPTIONS KIT
Lego® ACTION CONTRAPTIONS
Lego® goes crazy with this 100+ piece kit with everything you need to build (16) different contraptions (be pretty stupid if they made 16 of the same contraption) for your amusement. In the mix are gears, pulleys, belts and axles, which you could turn into a rocket racer, Lego® launcher, donkey cart or scissor grabber, among other things. Includes a 50-page spiral-bound graphically illustrated instruction booklet. And, yes, adding Lego® pieces of your own just ramps up the fun.

8 FOOT SOLAR BALLOON
It Can Fly!
Blow up this big, 8-foot long x 2-foot dia, solar balloon on a sunny day and then sit there, maybe enjoying a refreshing beverage, and watch while the sun heats up the black surface and the air inside expands and becomes lighter than the surrounding atmosphere and the whole thing rises like your hopes for a bright future. Includes a 20-foot cord to keep it in check. Works best on a cool but bright day. Don't we all.

SCIENCE AND WHIMSICAL POSTCARDS
Not Your Grandmother's Postcards
This whimsical pack of (30) postcards measures, unsurprisingly, post-card size 5-3/4" x 3-15/16", with non-duplicating images of gravy and bacon, Nikola Tesla, narwhals, spontaneous human combustion, boxing kangaroos, infinity and taxidermy, among many others of that ilk. Those ilks. Whatever--just buy 'em and stop asking so many questions. Blurbs on the back.

3-PACK INTROVERTS' NOTEBOOKS
Not Moleskinny, But Close
A 3-pack of notebooks for introverts. These 48-page lined notebooks measure 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" and have grocery store-paper-bag-color cardboard covers, pretty much what you find in your Moleskinny notebooks, but at less than 1/4 the price. Plus no strangers will talk to you on the bus because these are labeled "private thoughts," "don't talk to me," and "people to avoid" on the covers. They've got a pic of a tiny person reading at the bottom of the pages, but so what? From our friends at Archie McPhee.
