Drink like your grandfather did when he was in service to Uncle Sam, from this brand new aluminum canteen nested in a cup with folding handles, both inside a padded cotton olive drab cover (suitable for soaking to keep the water cold) with a pistol belt hook on the back. Canteen holds (1) quart, the cup about half that. Includes a black screw cap with a (non-GI) chain and carabiner.
You can’t put science on a stick, but you can put it in a can. The Crazy Scientist™ lab kits for young researchers come from The Purple Cow® in 6-1/2” x 9-1/2” x 1-1/2” tins. You pick from: The Water Gel Science Kit for ages 8+ with (14) experiments, lots of supplies and a 15-page manual; the Magnetic Wonder Kit for ages 8+ with a variety of materials and a 20-page manual; the Optical Illusion Kit for ages 6+ with (13) experiments, supplies, nd a 28-page manual; or the Young Survivor Kit, for preppers as young as 6, with (13) projects, equipment, and a 20-page manual.
Pure surplus: 11” x 4” x 1/4” thick oblongs (which is to say, rectangles with rounded ends) of dense, black nitrile rubber. It’s like padding, matte on one surface and glossy on the other. Great for dampening vibration, or wherever you need cushioning. Ready to use as is, and ready to cut to shape.
Think outside the box on your own time. These poster-pad adult coloring books are 8-1/2” x 11” on heavy, perforated stock, so you can tear out and diplay your work. Feature (60) extremely intricate designs. You pick Among the Stars, with designs based on the constellations, along with lots of celestial facts and mythology; or Geometric Designs, with extremely intricate mandelbrot and fractal-inspired designs. You’ll need to sharpen those color pencils, pilgrim. A great way to relax after a long day.
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.
These clear plastic jars look like the ones that medicated lip balm comes in, but these are empty. Measure approx 1-1/2” tall x 1-1/2” dia with a black plastic screw cap, and hold 1 oz. May we suggest creating your own lip balm and saving a fortune? Also good for toting a few pills on a trip (pain relief, allergy, vitamin), and for storing glitter, and for collecting insects, and for all of the other stuff you’ll come up with.
Just like all those traditional Army guys, 2-1/2” tall in hard rubber, except that these guys are from a different planet. Our each is 12-pack of aliens in assorted colors of olive drab, gray, purple and neon green, which have larger heads and big smiles, just like real ones.
Doesn’t happen much, but it’s a subtle transition. This thick-walled clear glass bottle stands 8-3/8” tall and holds 8 oz (230ml, about). Measures 1-7/8” square at the bottom and rounds up to shoulder about 1-1/2” below the black-plastic, gasketed screw cap.
