Instant Life Sea Monkeys
Sea Monkeys really do make great pets. I bought a package of them at Marineland in 1984 and didn't hatch them for more than a year. I must say that the Sea Monkey Zoo pictured here makes a much better home for them than a mayonnaise jar. If this is like the one I had, it has areas that magnify them so you can see that they really don't wear bows or crowns. That may or may not be what you want.
It may look like junk to you, but to kids it's a helmet, a seat, a tunnel, a stepstool, a bowl, a rocker. Maybe they'll finally play with this toy more than the box it came in.
Diecast replica of a 1949 Ford woody. Not so much a toy, although it would probably be okay for older kids. I really just want it for my office.
