PLAYMOBIL

PLAYMOBIL

I have two sons, and if I've learned anything about little boys and their toys it's this: Playmobil is the Best Thing Ever. Boys can be tough to buy for, particularly boys you don't see all the time, but I promise your nephew (and your niece, too!) will LOVE anything from Playmobil. Playmobil toys are perfect because they encourage imagination; my sons can spend hours making up stories about their pirates and knights and the adventures they go on. You can go all out and give the elaborate Knight's Castle, or start with something small, like the princess and her unicorn (a big favorite at my house--yes, with the boys!). Recommended for kids old enough not to put the pieces in their mouths.

  • The friendship bracelet grows up and gets glamorized with brass hardware and thick bands of colored cord. Oh, and, of course, a dash of spring's happiest color: Tangerine Tango.

I promise, no more organs or stuff. But I have an idea for a list, :D which is why I'm posting this. 3B Scientific is one of those top-quality German brands, you know, where everything is made to the most exacting standards (I imagine an assembly line with caliper armed workers, and the running joke is making fun of the guy who was .0001 mm off on a model, that one time, when he heard that the wall fell). They make a wide variety of anatomy models, demonstration devices and classroom teaching aids. Skeleton Stan is one of their better skeletons (and yes, he's your man). The bones are made from a cast of a real guy's bones (ok, so it's a little gory) and thus are extremely detailed, showing all the little nooks and crannies cheaper models miss. The bone weight is also roughly equivalent to the real thing. Plus, he's of human height (about 5"6') and comes on a stand. Other great features: - Articulating Jaw, so you can do the 'snap snap' thing. You also get to see all the teeth. - Open cranial cavity - Lift the latches and you can peer into the skull for further, detailed study of this ridiculously complicated piece of bone, or just to make a jello brain mold in. - All joints are replicated with metal hardware; pivot, ball and socket, etc. The bones can be separated with some screwdrivers and stuff. Perfect for studying any bone, seeing what you broke, or quizzing your doc on the correct order of the tarsals . Don't worry! I've also thought of 3 alternate, non-learning related uses: 1. Dress him up! Put on a sassy scarf, a nice beret, sunglasses, whatever! 2. Keep him in your closet, and if anyone ever mentions the phrase, "Skeletons in the closet", say "I've got one...it's a biggie." Then wheel him out. 3. If you're about the same height or width, he can make an, um, unusual valet. Drape your coat or jacket over his shoulders, hang your hat on his head, and loop your tie around his neck. You can even store your shoes on his feet (I have NO idea what size). All your stuff in one place, ready to go! Price: Around $220, but I've seen it as low as $150. If you don't need all the details and hinges, consider the Bucky or Bart models, which are $150 and $99 respectively. Mad Biologist use: Required home decor item. Also, in building your Über Being, you may want to have one of the 'old' models to look back at for refrence. Bonus: (Point to Skeleton) - "Carlton wasn't the brightest or fastest lab assistant, but the accident did place him in a much more useful role, don't you think?"

The Airman Original hews as close as possible to the original 'Fleiger' watch style - the specially issued watches given to pilots in WWII. The movement is a beautiful manual wind with a swan neck regulator, blued screws and guiloche patterns. All dial markings are applied with an extremely effective luminescent. The watch is available with or without the Stowa logo and in an automatic version that is COSC certified. Because of this watches popularity you have to be put on a wait-list for delivery. Current orders are expected to arrive by 2010 (I know, yikes.) 850 Euro.

Stowa is one of the increasingly visible German watchmakers. They distinguish themselves in 2 ways, however - they have actually been around since 1927 and they make AFFORDABLE watches without compromising quality. The Marine Original is a classic and one which has to be seen to be fully appreciated. A ceramic white dial, beautifully blued hands and a gorgeous caseback let you see the very well produced manual-wind ETA, COSC movement. 690 Euro. Also available in an automatic version and with roman numerals.

Steel DeLuxxe Ring set with approximately 2ct. white diamonds (depending on ring size), going all the way around the band; and also set with 12 black diamonds. TeNo jewelry is made of the finest stainless steel that is free of nickel. In terms of allergic safety and high durability this material is superior to most precious metals. Now I need to find someone to buy me one of those - or I may just have to buy it for myself someday! :)

  • If visions of sugar plums seem a little out-dated, how about visions of reindeer ? Such is the stuff these sheets are made of, with reindeer cavorting across the sheets and pillows of this winter bedding wonderland.

The Music Orb is a wooden ball made from high quality oak formed into a perfect sphere. With the turn of the key, Mozart's "Voi Che Sapete", a song taken from one of Mozart's comedic opera's, The Marriage of Figaro. The song is played by an 18-note chime that resides inside the ball giving it a kind of hollow and haunting sound. The ball can actually roll around and still produce the music, making it an especially interesting piece.

Where in the good lord's name do you go that you need that kind of water resistance?? Still, it's a pretty slick looking divers watch. It measures 44 mm in diameter. The steel used in the construction of the watch is 6 times harder than regular stainless steel. It's got a top-notch, anti-glare sapphire crystal. To maintain water-resistance, the watch contains copper sulphate capsules to absorb humidity and is filled with argon to equalize the pressure. It's anti-magnetic as well and has an operating range of -45º C to + 80º C. Best of all, you can use the chronograph underwater - the buttons won't leak. So yeah, you can take this pretty much anywhere. $4,360.

Nivea makes a few types of Men's (Women's too) deodorants that are only available on the continent. Thanks to the magic of the internet and small-time importers, you can get them here without paying too much of a premium. The 'Aqua Cool' scent is refreshingly clean, with just the right amount of perfume without being overpowering. It's way better than any of the Axe stuff, though the scent is somewhat similar to (but better than) Axe's 'Phoenix' (I tried it ONCE, ok??) It comes in an unconventional, travel friendly 150 mL bottle. It also has all these cool German words on it, like 'Neu!' and 'Vitalisierende Frische, Pflegt mild'. I recommend it!

It the lightest-weight pole I have ever held. I don't know the exact measurement but it seem suited for a postage scale. It's made out of aircraft grade aluminum for strength and durability. The best part is the Trigger S system, which allow you to strap the grip to your glove and have the pole attached to you for fast, responsive action. Like ski-bindings, the grips release when pulled upwards, preventing any metal-inducing injury. Around $80 and should certainly last a long time. Leki is the name to go with in Ski poles.

Elegantly described on their website as "The thing with the bang", The Berloque pistol really is one of the smallest pistols in the world. Hand made in Germany since 1905, they come in wooden or metallic boxes with complimentary shot cartridges included. You get bullets for flares (in case you get stuck in the Pacific), noise and just plain fun. PLEASE be careful though, as these can hurt someone. Also, I wouldn't try explaining this to a TSA agent.

Usually they need a little friend more their size. These 10" stuffed animals are just the right size be carried around the house, snuggled with at nap time, and played with during playtime. They contain small rattles in their body to added sensory and rhythmic development. They are made in Germany by home workers and each doll is inspected, and the faces lovingly finished, by Brigitte Schultz herself (owner of Kallisto). The cotton is 100% organic, and the bodies are colored with color grown cotton. Dyes used for the heads, hands, and feet are certified by Oeko-Tex to ensure the cleanest possible dyes. We have identified one possible problem with this range of animal rattles---how to choose between the available styles!
