Description The balls contain seven to ten trinket toys. Some of the balls also include a sealed clear plastic packet containing several blue and white or green capsules.

Some of the trinket toys inside the balls may include nylon cord friendship bracelets and rings, paper packets of dinosaurs and monsters, several round reflectors, animal shapes, chess pieces, and plastic cartoon faces.
