I imported them direct from China (eliminating the middleman). They can be found here...

Another picture of the Pokeballs. I used a silicone mold from Brambleberry to make them. They can be found here...

Brambleberry has cut erasers for embedding. They are soft and usable after the soap is gone. When my daughter was still working with the m&p she used the erasers and kids would want to collect the set.

I used the action figures because they were a good value, had no moving parts, and were not overly abrasive. The first batch I bought were only about 1 cm tall, so I was worried about a choking hazard.

I know that in the UK (poss EU) anything like that has to pass the choke test or TS can remove them from sale,

I am a big fan of the Applejack Peel fragrance from Brambleberry.

I'm curious now about whether these little vinyl toys would be safe to embed in cold process soap. Anyone know?

I have only ever put them in melt and pour so they can be seem through the clear soap. My supplier tells me they are made out of polyvinyl chloride so it should take the heat no problem. The only thing I would be concerned with is the paint from the pony's mane being damaged by the heat of saponification and caustic. If you try it do let us know how it turns out.
