About Us

As owner and CEO of Whitney’s Wardrobe, I’d like to welcome you to our website and hope as you browse through our products, you’ll be taken back to your childhood memories of Surprise Balls® and the excitement they created as the ball was shredded, in the frenzy to get to the hidden prizes. Kids love Surprise Balls®, and we love entertaining kids!

In the 40 years we’ve been in business, our look has changed, our logo has changed, even our prizes have changed; but one thing that has remained constant throughout the years is the thrill of the "Ball." Whitney’s Wardrobe has been known for manufacturing children’s products that are innovative and unique. Surprise Balls® have remained our best-selling product since we’ve been in business and they are still completely assembled in the U.S.A. at our Northern California facility. Our staff consists primarily of mothers, making our products kid-tested and approved! Our products are evaluated by the kids themselves for prize content, color and theme to assure you that what you receive will be something your child will love.

We’re excited to introduce to you, our fun, new designs for 2019. If you have any comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. Your feedback helps us to make the best product possible. So, from my family to yours, we’d like to say thank you and wish you a life of happy "Surprises."

Q. Are Surprise Balls® for all ages.
A. Because of the small toys inside, we don’t recommend them for children under 3 years of age.

Q. Is there any lead content in the prizes?
A. We test all of our prizes to assure that they are lead free and phthalate free as required by law.

Q. How large are the Surprise Balls®?
A. Our Surprise Balls are approx. 4 inches in diameter (the size of a large orange). The cupcakes are slightly smaller.

Q. What is the shelf life of Surprise Balls®?
A. Because we use no candy inside our balls, the shelf life is unlimited. However, you’ll find that because of their popularity, they don’t stay on the shelf for very long!

Q. Can I have them made with candy or specific prizes, colors, etc.?
A. Yes. We can make custom Surprise Balls® for you with a minimum order.

Q. Are these the original Surprise Balls® I remember when I was young?
A. Most likely, Yes. We’ve been making our Surprise Balls® here in the U.S.A. for over 35 years, and own the exclusive rights to the name. Prior to that, they came to the U.S. from Asia.
