Hah! yes that is what it looks like. You could do that in a pinch but it's not its primary function. The blue bit is latex and hollow and the orange bit is in two parts...

It's most definitely a genuine Tenyo latex Indian arrow-head which turns into a purple sponge ball which fits inside a 5D Surprise II, of which there were only two made/sold in Japan in 1988. Where's my prize?
and now, on with the show ...

Hmmm is it an air freshener, or a tool for removing ear wax? : ) I haven't got the faintest clue what that is, but Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone here on the forum! I look forward to hearing the answer to the mystery item!

the blue bit is stretchy and the orange bit is a ring. there's one small thing required to use it properly and they come in packs of about 100

It's not ammunition but you're In the right area. (and it's not a toy either, the box says 18+)
