Drop Down Spider
From the website:
Battery-Operated Drop Down Spider
Make a sound and down it drops — a full 2-1/2 feet.
Fuzzy legs move and eyes light up, adding to the creepy-crawly effect.
Then up the spider climbs again, awaiting his next victim.
Hang from a doorway, along a wall or from the ceiling.
Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).
Spider dimensions: 9"W x 6"H.

"Adams remains a dinosaur by creating all his projects on film and remaining free and clear of the bells and whistles of Photoshop."

Pawz Dog Boots
From the website:
Pawz Rubber Dog Boots
Made of durable but thin rubber for a secure sock-like fit, these resusable dog boots allow full paw motion, so your dog won't mind wearing them.
Great year 'round, they make especially convenient winter boots to protect paws from road salt or cutting ice.
You get a pack of 12 biodegradable boots: when one wears out, simply throw it away.
They protect without padding so dogs can feel the ground they walk on.
They can even romp in the mud or snow without the boots falling off.
The boots go on easily, with no zippers or straps to get in the way.
Please specify Small (Red); Medium (Blue); Large (Purple); or Extra-Large (Green).
