On TV

Top pick: No power tools? No duct tape? No kidding! Three teams on Junkyard Mega-Wars: Flight of the Century (8-10 p.m., TLC) compete to build a turn-of-the-century self-propelled aircraft using only tools that the Wright Brothers might have had 100 years ago.

• Critic John Kiesewetter also says that Linda Ellerbee has assembled children ages 10-14 for a timely Nick News special, The Iraq Question: American Kids Talk About War (8:30 p.m., Nickelodeon).

The goods

Tri-wheelers: Looks as if Huffy, the bike company, has reinvented the wheel. Sort of. Actually, it has reinvented the three-wheeler, the low-slung contraptions that entered the world as Big Wheels. Huffy's reincarnation is the Green Machine, designed to give riders more of a spin, slide and skid experience - especially good on extreme rear-wheel spin-outs, it says here, thanks to its dual joystick, rear-wheel steering mechanism and extra-wide rear wheels. It's $99.99 at toy and hobby stores.

Planning ahead
