What Rachel Wants to Buy This Week - Episode 9

This week's picks don't have a particular theme--except that they're both cool!

Solar Print Kit by Toysmith
Ages 5+
Located downstairs in the Chapter Book Room

It's amazing what the sun can do, and solar prints are one awesome example! This kit comes with instructions, stencils, and solar print paper that undergoes a chemical change when exposed to the sun, making a silhouette of whatever you place on the paper. It's a fun bit of science, and a great way to make customized cards, signs or wall decorations. Now that the sun is out in full force, it's a great time to try it!

Floppy Bunny Rabbit Puppet by Folkmanis
Located upstairs on the puppet tree

I love this puppet because it looks like my rabbit at home, but also because it's an excellent hugging size (17" long!) and super, super soft. It's got a movable mouth and front legs, expressive eyes, floppy ears and a cute fluffy tail. What more could you want from a bunny? It would also make a great gift paired with a book about a rabbit, whether it's Watership Down for a teen or Busy Bunnies for a toddler.

That's it for now--see you next time!
