    Bought this Tekky Toys prop from Party City and just got it today. Great look and like it a lot. I know people are always looking for this type of thing for their mad lab displays without having to try to locate something like it to DIY. I had a halloween prop throw switch from several years...

  7. Push Button Switches

    For a variety of reasons, I've decided to go with a human controlled switch to set off a pop up (and other props) in this year's haunt. Because it will be easier for the volunteer setting off the prop (and because it looks pretty), I wanted to use a nice push button, illuminated switch that I...
