Remote Control Moon: Werewolves Stay Warm, Quit Bothering Neighbors

Now you can howl at the moon in the convenience of your own home, with the $29.95 Discovery Remote Control Moon. This 10-inch model moon cycles through 12 lunar phases, illuminating its accurate moonscape. Plus, you can control its phases and turn it on and off with a remote control.

Too bad it requires four AA batteries to light the thing up and two AAAs for the remote, preventing it from being used as a nightlight. In spite of that, now your kid can truthfully say that you hung the moon. Of course, that will all be null and void by the time the little monster gets to be a teenage werewolf.
