We searched Crescent City high and low for a pair of gardening gloves for our son and came back empty handed. Lucky for you, we have Kid’s Gardening Gloves in stock!
Del Norte County has the perfect weather for kite flying! We have colorful Dragon and Butterfly Kites. Ready in seconds and easy to assemble this assortment includes 38-1/2″ x 29-1/2″ Butterfly kite and 14-1/2″ x 42-1/2″ Dragon kite. Each set contains a nylon kite, easy clip on line and handle.

Everything fits nicely into a reusable, zippered bag with carry straps for storage and portability. This set will give you hours of outdoor fun!
Are you looking to cool off while spending time in the sun? Turn water into laser beams with this futuristic blaster pump! It’s extremely easy to use and the results are intensely enthralling. Just dunk the nose into the water and pull on the handle to load the launcher with water. Then, hold down the button at the front of the launcher and push the whole thing together. WHOOSH! – A bright red beam of light shoots brilliantly through the fast-flowing stream! The water-blasting fun of the future is here with the Hydro Beam Water Launcher. Shoots up to 30 feet with this 22 inch long pump action water blaster. Super bright LEDs light up the water jet like a glowing laser.
Do you have a soccer enthusiast in the family? Transform any floor into a hockey or soccer court with the Can You Imagine Light-Up Air Power Soccer Disk. This exciting soccer disk floats on a cushion of air, allowing it to glide over any smooth surface. Powerful LED lights let the game go on even at night. A soft cushion of foam surrounding the edge of the disk protects furniture from damage. This toy is suitable for indoor or outdoor play. Requires four AA batteries (not included). There are two different power on/off switches for the disk; one for the light show, the other for power.
You need to try out a fun new twist on the classic Frisbee. The Beamo Flying Hoop provides hours of active outdoor fun. This lightweight hoop is fun to use and can fly for more than 100 feet. The hoop’s soft foam ring and spandex sleeve is both safe to use and durable, designed to stand up under hours of intense play. The Beamo Flying Hoop helps develop hand-eye coordination and keeps kids on the move.
Have you heard about the Airzooka? Destined to become a classic, Airzooka is a unique hand held device that, when operated, blows a harmless “ball of air” towards any object or person. Laugh with amusement as, seemingly from nowhere, you are able to mess up someone’s hair, ruffle their shirt or just plain blow them away.
This product is one of the most unique products we have seen and gets a laugh whenever we show it. Airzooka makes a great gift item for kids of all ages. Requiring no batteries or electricity, Airzooka operates simply by pulling and releasing a built-in elastic air launcher. Airzooka also features a pop-up site for improved accuracy. Take aim at your friends during a lively game of Air Tag, or simply try your luck at indoor target practice. And here’s the best part: because it shoots air, you’ll never run out of fun.

Breyer Dundee 2018 Premier Club Special Run
Meet Dundee, the second release in the Breyer 2018 Premier Club. He is a spectacular dunalino pinto Australian Stock Horse. He was sculpted by Nikki Button and what a magnificent job Nikki did for Breyer on her very first sculpt for them! Dundee is performance friendly and is sure to be a performance shower’s dream.
As with Breyers other Premier Club reveal pictures, these photos are of the original resin. The plastic version will undoubtedly have its differences as it will be mass produced. The Breyer Premier Club Duende caused quite a stir over what the prototype looked like and how the production piece turned out. You can see pictures of the prototype Duende in my original Duende Blog Post. I was admittedly disappointed with Breyer’s execution of Duende but Breyer absolutely blew it out of the park with Bristol. I have high hopes for Dundee (not to be confused with Duende, eck)!
I anticipate that Dundee will ship in August. While he is beautiful, I don’t envision myself keeping this one and my personal copy of Dundee will likely be for sale. None the less, I’m quite excited about Dundee’s impending release!

Breyer Jackpot & Woodford – BreyerFest 2018 Raffle Models
Breyer reposted the pictures of two of the BreyerFest 2018 Raffle models. Only 25 of each will be raffled off with 1 additional made for the auction. The first model is Woodford, the new Shire Gelding mold sculpted by Karen Gerhardt in a beautiful silver dapple pinto.
The second model is the brand new Breyer Premier Club Bristol mold in a spectacular chestnut leopard appaloosa. I just love this one (and Woodrow too!)
Here is what the BreyerFest Blog had to say about Woodford and Jackpot.
Over the last 28 years of BreyerFest, we have raised over $1,100,000 for charity! And it’s all thanks to our Breyer Fans!
The contributions came from the money raised in the Silent Auction, Live Auction, and the Breyer Benefit Raffles. Last year alone, more than $85,000 was donated to a wide variety of causes close to our heart.
As usual, we’re hoping for the biggest year ever. But we need your help!
There are several great ways you can contribute to our amazing beneficiaries!
Breyer Benefit Raffle
You’ve already met the Saturday and Sunday Benefit Raffles horses, Woodford and Jackpot. Each of the beautiful models is limited to 26 pieces (25 models for the Raffle and 1 model in the Live Auction). Our lucky winners will certainly be lucky to take home either of these handsome horses.

Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases
Here are the Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases. I will try to write a separate blog post about each but these pictures should be enough to wet any Breyer collector’s appetite! The mini Alborozo has caused quite a stir and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t up our order so that I can have a chance at him too. We will not have Prism or Nevermore, sorry! The others will be available for preorder shortly including the Stablemate Mystery Surprise Unicorns as both singles and as a complete box. On to the eye candy, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them 🙂

Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty – Foxfire UV Reactive Fun!
Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty can stretch like rubber and bounce like a ball, and because it’s silicone-based, it won’t dry out or crumble over time. It’s part toy, part stress reliever, part physical therapy and entirely addictive. Once you start playing, it’s hard to stop!
Foxfire is the name of an eerie glow created by phosphorescent fungi in decaying wood. A natural wonder, foxfire is often associated with magical things like woodland fairies and the will o’ the wisp.
Foxfire Thinking Putty is equally wondrous. This glimmering light green putty shines a bright blue with a green edge in the dark. Plus, you’ll reveal a supernatural glow when you draw on Foxfire with the included Glow Charger™.
Each tin includes 1/5 lb of Foxfire Thinking Putty—a huge handful for tons of fun—and a Glow Charger.
We have a variety of 2 inch and 4 inch tins of Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty available at our retail location.
Come visit our retail location in downtown Crescent City.
