3 What Is This? (18 pics)

Answer: “Bird spikes. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and this one happens to look mountable onto a pole or something. Think of something you wouldn’t want birds to get up into or on top of — this could’ve been mounted on it, like, for example, on a satellite dish.”

7 What Is This? (18 pics)

Answer: “Those are training scissors for small children. Adults can use the second set of finger holds while the child learns control with the first.”

“It’s rubber/silicone, the size of a fingertip, doesn’t erase, and about as hard as a bouncy ball but doesn’t bounce like a bouncy ball. It doesn’t light up.”

8 What Is This? (18 pics)

Answer: “Looks like an ’80s light bulb eraser without the metal bottom; they never really erased anything. Here are a couple of similar ones.”

“We got this from our African care child. Any idea what it could be?”

9 What Is This? (18 pics)

Answer: “It’s a bowl set. The top part is like a spoon you can use to drink from or dish out stuff. The other ones below look like regular bowls. You place the bowls on those red pads.”
