A Klutz classic gets bigger, better, and even crazier. In 1998, we published a book of cool things to build with LEGO bricks. Just like that, kids everywhere quit stacking bricks in blocks that don't move and instead began constructing new things that DO things. And today, nearly 750,000 books later, they're demanding more. LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions is a brand-new book of brand-new, high-performance projects. From the Supercharged Speedster to the Squeezeclaw Grabber to the Wall Rocket Racer - all these contraptions spin, stretch, speed, or otherwise spring into action. And all of them are totally buildable thanks to super-clear instructions and step-by-step diagrams. Wonderful as the original book was, this new version is even better, and here's why: In the earlier book, five of the ten projects required bricks that you (hopefully) had at home. In this new version, every single one of the 16 projects can be constructed using just the custom selection of LEGO bricks that come with the book. All you need to supply is a little time, a little energy, and definitely a little craziness.

Making paper airplanes doesn't feel like science. And it's not quite art. Near as we can figure, it's magic. Sure, paper airplanes fly because of good, old reliable physics. And it takes a sharp eye and a clean fold to make them right. But launching a regular old piece of paper into the sky so that it soars, loops and glides - that's pure magic. We present here a complete guide to folding aerobatic amazements. The ten airplanes in this book are the best we've ever seen: easy to make, forgiving of mistakes, attractive and flight-ready under all kinds of conditions. Clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations make even the most impressive planes kid do-able, while trimming and tweaking tips give basic principles of flight instant real-world relevance. This big (10" 12") book comes complete with 40 sheets of flight-tested, ready-to-fold paper, printed on both sides in a variety of 20 colourful patterns, including leopard print, wood grain, hot rod flames and lose-it-on-the-lawn-grass. It's everything you need to rule the skies. Comes With: 40 sheets of custom-designed paper.

A journal that's beyond words. For beginning journal-keepers, especially tweens, it can be tough to put feelings into words. But putting feelings into doodles – that's a whole different story. Introducing Doodle Journal, a book that makes self-epression as simple as letting your pen do its thing. This prompted journal is filled with cool, doodly artwork growing out of the corners and creeping up the edges of the pages like a wild vine of inspiration. But plenty of space on every spread is left invitingly clear, waiting for the journal-keeper's touch. There are also tons of activities, including ""doodle-starters"" — faintly printed guidelines of cool shapes and patterns. Trace over them, adding your own embellishments, to make the designs your own. It's the satisfaction of creation with no artistic skills required. Clever journal prompts and drawing ideas mean there is never a struggle thinking of what to doodle. And, of course, the one tool you need is included: a custom-designed gel pen, mounted in a convenient holder. It's everything you need to do the doodles of your life.

Amazing bracelets you squeeze out of a tube. When we first showed Glossy Bands to girls, it was clear we had a winner. They put the bracelets on and admired the colourful designs. They stretched the bracelets to take them off and watched as they shrank back to their original size. They put the bracelets back on, and that's when things got sticky. Clearly, we were not going to get these bracelets back. Glossy Bands start as a special, non-toic, acrylic paint. To make one, simply squeeze out dots of color following one of the patterns in the book. Then use the swirling stick to mix the colour into fancy designs. Once it's dry, peel your bracelet up and wrap it around your wrist. You've made your first Glossy Band: a beautiful, durable, completely wearable work of art. Chances are good that you've never seen anything quite like a Glossy Band. We think this book is going to change that. Once word gets around how easy it is to make these deliciously shiny, irresistibly stretchy bracelets, you're going to start seeing them everywhere.

A fresh spin on a drawing revolution! Back in the 20th century, kids used plastic gears to draw geometric designs. When the process worked, the results were beautiful. But, too often, sprockets didn't mesh, gears stuck, and drawings were crumpled in frustration.

At Klutz, they see this kind of kid frustration as a call to action. So they created The Spiral Draw Book. Gratifying stacks of letters, drawings, and sales figures showed how kids loved the meticulously designed gears and draw-right-on-'em pages. Now, 9 years later, this book has earned a fresh new spin!

The gears have been engineered (and tested, tested, and tested again) for maximum ease of use — they're even translucent, to eliminate the "where was I?" of other spiral systems. The frame's rubber feet grip the lay-flat book pages securely. Updated project ideas show how to create and combine the 65 different shapes into stunning spirals, while a pen with six different ink colors guarantees every one of them will be rainbow bright. And now, everything packs away into a neat new format with tons of workspace and storage — perfectly sized for a zillion and one spirals!
