BATTERY OPERATED COB LED LIGHT
Sunshine In Your Closet
Or garage, or hallway--anywhere that’s wireless in the bad sense. CJ calls this “another retina scorcher” from iZoom® because of the brightness of the COB lights. Fixture measures 3" x 4" x 13/16" in white plastic with a big rocker switch that activates the 1” white COB LED in its center. Powered by (4) “AAA”s, included. Mounts via self-adhesive hook-and-loop pads or the pair of little disc magnets on the back.

CHOPPING MATS
Flat Mats
Let's cut to the chase here -- buy these the first time you read this, or they're going to be gone! There aren't that many of these flexible chopping mats, and the versatile 15" x 12" x 0.024" thick mats are not only ideal for small kitchens where every inch counts, they're great for any kitchen, and for cookouts, camping and picnics. Our each is a set of (2) of the translucent Euro-look mats that protect countertops from sharp knives and fresh-from-the-oven cookies, and protect food from outdoor surfaces. They can be lifted and slightly folded to funnel chopped food neatly into a pot. They're dishwasher safe, and roll up for portage or storage.

FIRE ALARM REPLICA LED LIGHT
PULL THIS!
Kids who pulled these fire alarms in school got sent to the office (unless there was an actual fire, of course), but now you can pull the lever all you want on this Fire Alarm LED light. Super-bright and super-handy for closets, garages and the like, or just as an emergency light. Measures 4-3/8” x 3” x 1-1/4” with a pair of bright COB LED light strips. Mounts via two screw holes, or with the included double-sided tape. Runs on (3) “AAA” batteries, included.

5mW GREEN LASER POINTER
Green Laser Par Excellence!
Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure. You will, of course, use it to point out chimney cracks to the tuck-pointer, a cracked limb to the tree-trimmer, and the crack in your profit picture during a slide presentation. You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip, and case. An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.

OUTDOOR THERMOMETER
Maxi Thermometer
Hang this sucker on the outside of the garage, and read the temperature from the kichen window. If your garage is reasonably close. And it’s not dark outside. The 15–1/2” tall white–plastic alcohol thermometer has red fluid, good–sized black numbers, and clear markings from –30°C to 50°C and from –20°F to 120°F. An easy read.

ULTRA BRIGHT LED LIGHT
Amazing Mighty Mini Light
Call it a gonzo version of our best work-light, this 4-5/8" x 2-1/4" x 1" cigarette-pack-size light has (60) white LEDs in a 3" x 1-1/2" window with a bright mode and a way brighter mode that would blind a turkey vulture, plus (4) more for a standard flashlight mode. Includes a flip-out easel, hook and a disc magnet. Comes with (3) "AAA"s.

QUICK FIX ZIPPER PULLS
Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dad
The manufacturer calls it the Quik Fix Zipper but they obviously don't pay a copywriter to create dumb puns. So...it's the Zip-a-dee-doo-dad, a set of (3) replacement zipper tabs/sliders in graduated sizes (#3, #5, and #7) that come apart so you can slip then onto a zipper and tighten them with a little thumbscrew. Handy for busted jackets and sleeping bags. Even handier for pants. Removeable and re-usable.

FREEZE-DRIED READY-TO-EAT ICE CREAM
Astronautical Snack
Freeze-dried Neapolitan ice cream, it says on the foil package, just like the astronauts got if they ate all of their freeze-dried peas. Not frozen, of course, or even chilled, but you get one yummy pack, ready to eat, just under half an ounce, which is more than you'd think.

CLASSIC DRINKING BIRD
Drinking Bird
You're buying the drinks and this wacky, yet debonair, bird with a top hat and plastic base (7" tall OA) can't get his fill of water. Get him started, and he dips his beak into your glass repeatedly. How? Fluid inside his glass body condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird's beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water. The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird's bulb, and he tips up again. Process continues indefinitely. It works, but it's not any more than moderately well made, and not any more than moderately priced. WARNING! The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird's glass body can easily be broken. Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great. But they should watch him, not fondle him!! Manufacturer warning states this item is not intended for children 8 and under.
