This realistic looking rock is made of soft foam and has virtually no weight. It could be thrown at a window and cause no damage, except perhaps a heart attack for the owners of the window when they see the rock being thrown.

This rubber monkey has a pin to attach it to your lapel. At the back of the monkey is a nozzle where a rubber tube should be attached. On the other end of the tube there should be a rubber bulb which, when squeezed, inflates the monkey’s arms and legs which unfold and fly out. The tube and bulb should be hidden from sight so that, when someone comes close all they see is the monkey. At this moment the wearer squeezes the bulb and the monkey suddenly appears alive as the arms and legs fly out, much to the surprise of the onlooker.
