“X-Files” agent wannabes can get their hands dirty at an early age with I Dig Aliens excavation kits by Earth Lore Ltd. Each kit includes an alien figure (choose from Roswell autopsy alien, reptilian alien, big brain alien or typical gray alien), trading card and excavation tool. Larger kits come with glasses and glow paint so kids can make their aliens more lifelike.
The kits are educational, too, teaching children to excavate using scientific techniques. Maybe the alien autopsy kit will be next. I Dig Cavemen and I Dig Dinosaurs kits are also available. For ages 6 and older. $2 to $4 for mini-kits; $19.95 to $24.95 for larger kits. At toy stores, or call (800) 440-2630.
