When I was a little girl, every once in awhile my father would bring me a surprise ball from a little shop in Little Tokyo. I have such fond memories of unwinding what seemed to be endless strips of crepe paper until little by little, small toys and treasures would fall out. Such a simple but totally exciting thing for a child. When I saw that the wonderful shop Kiosk offered a surprise ball of considerable size filled with vintage trinkets, I knew I had to have one and somehow re-live the joyful memories of early childhood. I still got the same rush as I unwrapped this colorful orb. Haven't figured out what to do with the trinkets, maybe they'll be attached to Xmas gifts this year. My cat loved the mound of crepe paper, so all was not wasted.
