Kmeyer indicated some things to post to a Tuesday Morning store shopping thread if there was one. Now there is! Look forward to your posts.
You could also try Walmart's garden section, as they have a (boxed) floating alligator that comes in pieces for around $20, I want to say.Dave are you referring to the one I picked up a few years ago from TM (posted to the TM thread then)? If so, they were pool floats by PoolMaster if that helps people locate them.
I was shopping for a child's birthday gift and while I was in the children's toy aisle, I found a large collection of science toys, including a whole BUNCH of bugs sealed in resin. They were about $1.49 each, maybe slightly more for the larger one.

I think the bugs will make a nice addition to our "curiosities" display, although I'm not sure how I'm going to display them yet!
