Ice Cream Magic (P985)
Make homemade ice cream is hard when you don’t have an actual ice cream machine: you need to stir it and roll it in a tube of ice. Lot of hard work. But then we found this nifty Ice Cream Magic which promises to make ice cream in three simple steps-the last one, by the way, is to enjoy. The results aren’t as creamy as you’d normally see, but it’ll pass for those quick ice cream fixes we occasionally require under the country’s erratic weather.
Available at True Value
Starfleet Pins (P599)
Space crafts aren’t included but all you really need is a gold or blue sweater and you can start feeling like Captain Kirk or Mister Spock. The pins have a nice metal finish and are secured with two locks. Their not magical amulets, so we’re not sure if you’re going to live any longer or more prosperous when you wear them but damn it, they’re fancy, not functional!
