The first wave of mini UFOs invaded our earth unmanned, controlled remotely by an invisible force from outer space. Who could it be? Men from Mars? Women from Venus? The Tralfamadorians? It soon became clear with the arrival of the second wave, little starships piloted by aliens. See their clear cut faces ominously catch the changing color light glowing inside the pod. Let’s just hope these little guys come in peace.
Choose from several versions of UFO Flying Saucers up in my etsy shop.
I have been having a blast designing these little UFO flying saucer lamps. When I was a kid, back in the early 70’s, I was out with my mom shopping, and I saw a display of UFO toys I was curious about. They looked as if they were made for girls. Cute little girly aliens inside classic flying saucers. Made from turquoise, pink, and purple candy clear plastics with glitter embedded. The little Alien gals inside the UFOs were really cute. I didn’t care if they were girl toys or not, I wanted them. Mom was way too busy that day, and we had to go. Sad thing is, I have never seen those toys ever again. I still wonder what they were called.
Instead, I thought I’d make my own batch of tiny UFO flying saucers using the little pod capsule from gumball machines. I showed my first UFO to my wife, and she looked for a way to turn on the light, but I had not included one. I took that as a challenge to be sure the next one did light up. Now, I’m making several UFO variations. The Starship has little star cutaways in the maple ply and acrylic ring. The cut out stars create visible lines of light along the wall, as the LED sends a nebula light show to the ceiling. Check out the video above to see it in action.
JEMTOY UFOs ship USPS Priority Mail, with a 2032 coin cell battery so it’s ready right from the box. Several UFO styles to choose from. Check ’em out before they all blast away!
I wanted to show how cool these mini 3″ UFO Flying Saucers are as awesome display items. It’s fun to place the UFO lamp next to sci-fi toys, mini robots, plastic figures, and vinyl kaiju toys. The light show seems to breathe life into the little monsters. Thanks to everyone that has already ordered. I’m gonna make another batch if you want one.

I have a thing for kitschy B movies. The classic flying saucer is one of my favorite blasts from the past. For a long time I have wanted to turn gum ball machine pods into a UFO, and I’ve finally done it. The acrylic sends out bands of colored stripes as the top emits a nebula of changing color. This small 3 inch lamp can easily turn your room into a galaxy of amazing light patterns and colors. Although I try, the video cannot do it justice. You must see it in person for full effect. Surprise your friends, create the perfect mood, kick back and chill. Check it out! Information and ordering links below.
I collect vintage fabrics and look for it at yard sales, Goodwill, Salvation Army, thrift stores, and barn sales. I have decided to upcycle the smaller pieces by silk screening Wiggly Loaf and making soft plush pillow toys. Each one unique and one of a kind. I have a few up on my bigcartel site, click below to check ’em out. Woo Hoo!!!
Welcome to the Pitik of Glory World Championships. It gets weird.
Click here to Print! Cut! Fold! Glue! your very own: Pitik of Glory game.
I’ve been in the mood to create some new games and here is the first completed paper game, The Pitik of Glory. Players take turns trying to finger flick a penny, bottle cap, or glass blob into the hole in the goal post. Who ever can get it in from the furthest away wins. Players start at 20 inches away and if you miss you try again at 19, 18, 17 until you get in the goal. Your score is the number you got a goal from. Easy to play, hard to master.
I have made a video tutorial for those of you who hate to read instructions as much as I hate writing them.
