totally believed this were magical. kicked and screamed for my mom to buy me one. and when she finally did, it didn't even have a jewel in its belly! just an ugly troll doll with NO magical powers :( still kept it though lol.
Remember "Baton Twirling?" you would practice and practice... quite often you would drop it on your foot, or on the ground; if you threw it in the air and missed catching it, it would either hit the ground or your face.:-)
