Bubble Beauties TM floating balls are clear, 2-inch-wide plastic balls containing another clear plastic ball that holds a small, plastic doll. The dolls have either pink, blue, purple or yellow hair. The liquid around the inner ball contains glitter. Writing on the floating balls include: "Bubble Beauties TM...#2801...NOT A THROWING TOY...MADE IN CHINA."
