Originally called 'Putt Putt Steam Boats' in the 1920s, these reproduction toys can be used to teach many scientific principles. Using a small flame from a candle or a few drops of cooking oil, the 10 cm (4 inch) long boats will chug along for hours.

Fascinating to watch in a circular pan of water. Colors may vary.
