Terrarium in a Lightbulb

Fourth in the series of capsule ball dispenser toys I got all at one time. This is a fake terrarium designed as an old incandescent light bulb. The plants and dirt are plastic. I got this just to demonstrate how off the wall some of these toys are. The bulb is about 2" long, and the metal end cap comes separately and you have to put it on the bulb yourself. 4 plants total, 300 yen each. This was the most expensive of the toys I'd gotten. The aloe flower is my least-favorite design, but I'm not willing to spend the money to get something better.

It's designed well enough that several people have wondered if it's really real.
