    I made this ball with 12 stuffed pieces. It is called something like "spinning top" in Japanese.
    I heard this is not very new to you in USA, and want to know the name of it there.

    Its very neat looking, but I really dont know what they are called. The potpourri sounds like a great idea...or dried lavender!

    I had a look and I see that at least one person calls it a "froggy ball" and a "puzzle ball" on the same page!

    Beautiful Yumi! I think that the potpourri is a good idea, hubby's judo was always smelly, I am sure karate is too!

    I use to make these back in the 80's and sold them in a baby shop. It was one of their best selling baby gift items. Thanks for the memory. I probably made over 100 of these. LOL....
