Quick Overview

Unraveling the history of the Surprise Ball
Our Bami Balls or Surprize Balls are created from 100 ft of colorfully changing paper ribbon with lots of fun treasures. As the crepe ball unravels, surprises and gifts spill out of each layer.


Early history of Surprise Balls: The earliest evidence of surprise balls were found in the Native American culture. Traditionally, it was a common practice to tell the history of one’s life with this unique ball. The first layer represented birth and for each event in life, another layer and memento was added. The Surprise Ball of the Native American’s culture represents a person’s entire life. In the 1950’s, surprise balls became vogue in Mid America. A gent named Charles Gregor began creating surprise balls in New Orleans . He named his version-The Surprise Ball “The Toy You Destroy to Enjoy” The surprise ball soon made its appearance in prestigious toy stores such as Fao Swartz and the gift store at the famed Mayo Clinic. We hear that the auxiliary of The Children’s Hospital in Minnesota made the balls for their gift store. The balls were also sold at Ben Franklin Crafts throughout the 50s. A coastal store near San Francisco was also notorious for its wonderful balls throughout the 50s. And then there were no more. (It is hard work to wind a perfect ball.) There were a few copies of the balls made in Japan . These had a hard plastic ball in the center filled with trivial toys. They lacked the colorful fun layers filled with the wonderful original surprises.
