SANTA CLAUS SHOPS AT PACIFIC SCIENCE CENTER

 SANTA CLAUS SHOPS AT PACIFIC SCIENCE CENTER
 SEATTLE, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa knows that the Explore More


Store at Pacific Science Center is a Christmas-present haven. From Ammonites to Zoetropes, there's unusual, intriguing and mind-boggling gifts and stocking stuffers for all ages at all prices, the center said today.
 Gravity Blocks will challenge your wits in a game of strategy and balance ($24.95). Triazzles will try your brain with the triangular puzzle that has thousands of possibilities but only one solution ($11.95-$13.95). Bring the planets into perspective with a solar system desk set made of beautiful varieties of rock, or keep the planets in the sky with a three-dimensional solar system mobile. Getting down to earth, there's a "Falling Rain" Nature Chime of handsome hardwood -- watch as the beads fall against the chimes to create melodic tones ($89.95-$109.95).
 Discover the fascinating world of animation with the Movie Motion Zoetrope, a classic version of the Victorian parlor toy ($5.95-$35.95). The Zoetrope Book is a perfect complementary gift that presents the history and gives directions on how to make your own zoetrope. Perhaps a brilliantly colored, computer-generated Fractal T-shirt, greeting card set or book is the ticket for that hard-to-shop-for person.
 Don't stop at computers when there's rockets to be launched. There's the Cato ($10.99) with awesome mid-air disintegration, or the Scrambler ($10.99) that carries an egg to altitudes over 300 feet. For avid Trekkies, get ready to pit the Star Trek(R) USS Enterprise ($29.95) against the Star Trek Klingon Battle Cruiser ($29.95). Spock Bear ($69.95) and Einstein Bear ($61.95) are great pals for the young and young-at-heart.
 Electrify your friends and family with Mr. Circuits Lab Kits -- make a burglar alarm, an automatic night light or a wake-up alarm and other electronic devices ($6.95-$49.95). Combine beauty and intrigue with a rainforest puzzle. Assembly of all three puzzles will reveal the complete picture from the forest floor to the canopy. If you want more than a regular puzzle, be sure to get a mystery puzzle like the Purr-ceptive Detective. Read the story, complete the puzzle and then solve the mystery. For the spy in the family, there's a Private Eye -- the optical device that allows you to see around the corner. Made of carefully handcrafted wood, it's a perfect stocking stuffer ($13).
 If you like the 16th century type of gift, a Galileo Thermometer may be the perfect idea. This fascinating and functional thermometer is based on Galileo's discovery about liquids, density and temperature ($159-$247).
 Stocking stuffers abound at the Explore More Store: titanium jewelry ($4.95-$35.95); glow-in-the-dark stars ($1.20-$25); astronaut ice cream ($1.95); rocks and shells; Escher ties, socks, T-shirts, books and prints ($2.95-$59.95); science activity kits ($5.95); magnetic wands and marbles; musical spheres ($19.95-$35.95); and Pacific Science Center's exclusive Optical Illusion T-shirts and mugs ($5.95-$15.95).
