What's out there: Magnets, bubblemakers and kids' chairs

June 1, 2014 

Message magnets: Let the world and your refrigerator know what makes you say Yay! Small magnets are $3.95 while the larger ones are $5.95 at The Abbey in west Belleville. Plus, you buy a notecard for a dollar that has a window for the magnet.

Big bubbles: The expression, "Go big or go home," suits these bubblemakers. You can make truly monumental bubbles with these wands tucked inside a big handle. Prefilled with bubble juice, just pull out the collapsed wand, watch it pop open and wave. A lot of fun for a buck at Dollar Tree in the Target shopping center off Illinois 15 I Belleville. Check other locations as well.

Chairs for kids: Hard to day whether kids will sit still longer in these scaled down chairs from Target in west Belleville. But, they're made of durable fade-resistant fabric and have a stainless steel frame. Plus, they're stackable. Just $13 in the garden section.
