Match Candles are the best of candles and matchsticks

Match Candles are one part matchstick, one part candle, and the best of both. You light them by striking the head of the match candle, like you would do a matchstick. The head lights up, and the candle is lit. Pretty simple actually, and we imagine, quite handy in a blackout.

Air supremacy of a Lego gunship

You can get fantastic air supremacy in plastic, if you can get hold of an aircraft like this one. Built by Dutch builder Red Spacecat, the AV-24B Seahawk is inspired by the AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet and AH-64 Apache helicopter.
