DRAGON ROBOT KIT
The Pet Of Tomorrow
Our robotic kingii dragon (Chlamydosaurus kingii, or frilled-neck lizard) is better than a puppy because you don't have clean up after it and it won't chew the furniture. This kit has (2) motors and digital control via IR sensors to activate LED eyes, motorized mouth and pop-out frill, plus "escape" and "approach me" modes, which retreat and make nice, respectively. You'll need (4) "AAA" batteries and some patience, as this kit is delightfully challenging. Finished dragon will be 13-1/2" long x 8-1/4" x 5". For ages 10+. Check out our short video on Youtube!

THUMLER'S ROCK TUMBLER W/ABRASIVES

STATIC ELECTRICITY WIMSHURST GENERATOR
The Sparks Will Fly…
…when you crank up this 13-1/4" tall, hand-cranked Wimshurst generator. They were the toast of the 19th Century, and remained the hottest thing around, electrostatically speaking, until Bobby Van de Graaf came along. This one works like a top, zapping sparks to a fare-thee-well with very little cranking. It's mighty pretty too, in acrylic, white and silver, and will dress up a dull physics or electronics lab.
