Description: Magic balls, 6 cm in diameter, sold in sets of 3 or 6, packed in individual plastic film and then in a transparent plastic case. When in contact with water, the effervescent cosmetic ball dissolves, releasing a capsule which floats for several minutes on the surface of the water. This capsule then melts and releases a small sponge, which until then had been compressed inside the capsule. The sponge comes in different amusing shapes for children (objects, characters, animals, etc.).

Country of origin: South Africa
