Hi Dave! I'm the Crystal Ball Rabbit from Origins last year.

The ball's actuall acrylic, not crystal, so there's no worry of it shattering or chipping when you drop it (unless you're dropping it from several hundred feet onto concrete, I suppose). You can get them from juggling supply stores: mine came from Brian Dube's online store at http://www.dube.com/ (check at http://www.dube.comballs/3.html for their acrylic balls). Mine is a 3" clear ball; for your son you'll probably want a 2.5".

Incidentally, James Ernest, another noted game designer, literally wrote the book on the type of juggling I was doing. His book's called _Contact Juggling_; Dube lists it as being out of print, but you can probably scrounge up a copy somewhere.

Hope this helps, and I'll see y'all next year!

Hi Dave!

Sorry, I don't remember a Rabbit with a Crystal Ball, nor do I know where you might find one. But hey, let's ask the rest of the Rabbits!

Hey Rabbits! Is the Origins Crystal Ball Rabbit on this list? Does anyone know who it might have been? Does anyone have a good source for cool glass orbs?

Can you please tell me where I can get a ball like that?  Is this

Thanks for any help and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
