The toys are sanitized and upcycled - I get them at thrift stores and garage sales and sometimes from my own kids. Packs may include be bouncy balls, cars, figures, jewelry, erasers, legos, music makers or fidget toys.
Each pack holds one or two small toy/s, first wrapped in paper and/or fabric then wrapped in many layers of easy-to-tear masking tape, glitter tape, and stickers. There is a place on the packaging for the pieces of tape or they can go back in the bag.
When I was a kiddo, my mom would wrap my toys up in layers of masking tape to keep me busy on long car rides. I'm told this would keep me busy for ages: unwrapping the toy and them playing with it.
