    I have many of these but this is a very nice way for making the tumble bean very nice thanks

    Nice instructable. The toy capsule in a kinder surprise works very well also!

    Hey thats a good idea! Unfortunately, they don't sell kinders here (I haven't seen them anywhere close by). Thanks for the idea though!

    I wonder if it would make sense to paint the inside of the capsules so that the plastic would protect the paint. I also wonder if it would work with medicine capsules and BB shot.


    Then you could have a bunch of them going all over the place.

    Lots of fun ideas popping out of this.

    Great instructable!

    Hi joen,
    I'm so glad you enjoyed my instructable!!
    Painting the inside is a great idea, but it might be hard to sand the inside of the capsules. Of course, you could use spray paint.
    Medicine capsules and BB shot might work as well, but unfortunately I can't test that.
    If anyone tries that, please let me know the results!

    I tried it a few years ago and it does work. The only problem is that it isn't very durable and can't get wet.

    Thanks so much for trying it out! I had no idea what the results would be like (since I don't have any BB shot at the moment).

    Thanks again!

    Steel Balls (sometimes called ball bearings) are easy to find. You can get them in a package of Magnetix (a magnetic construction toy that requires those metal balls for joints).
    You can also by a steel ball here for $0.55

    Of course, you could try using other materials (although steel works the best) to act as a weight inside the capsule, as long as they are spherical.
