Bookmarked for later reference. Most of my best products originated as recommendations from friends and customers, so I'm always interested in personal endorsements.

Oh, now that is really nice!  And I agree with you Daehawk - there are too many items to choose from, lol!  I bookmarked the site, partly based on following this link:

Flying-Pig Paper Animation Kits

I'm pretty sure the kit doesn't look like this, but I like it anyway!




I'm no genius, but I know I'd like this as well (it's good enough to look at if nothing else!) -  the Techno Gears Marble Mania Genius Set:

Very cool site. We actually have a few of those toys already (cheap Chinese knock offs FTW).

This is hysterical though:

Why is it flying an American flag? A flag that probably has 50 stars too!  icon_twisted

We almost got that for our daughter last year.  It was featured on Flash Forward a few weeks back.

My wife got that for me last year, as sort of a joke.  I want to put it in the guest room, set it for 5 AM when we have company, and watch the hilarity ensue.

This one is not only available at Curio City right now, but on sale at $5 off MSRP. They didn't sell for me (too widely available) so I'm clearing them out. I had 10 left last time I checked.

Subscribe to my newsletter or become a facebook fan. Links for both are on my blog. I give out coupon codes both ways. There are none in effect right now, nor do I have any planned before xmas. But not all promos are planned.  icon_wink
