What is this mystery object found on the floor of a public bathroom at a Boston Best Buy?

I think it's a children's toy normally sold in vending machines. It's sticky so you can slap and pick up things like paper and small objects. The hole is so you can wear it on your finger.

Is it one of these food pods?

I believe that's a deflated spiky goo ball toy (note: not the trade name). Remember those sticky slap hands from the 90s? Same idea, only a ball. On a string you can loop around your finger so you can play with it all yo-yo like. Granted, I'm not really well versed in the sex toy department, so I could be wrong. But you can find stuff like that in the impulse buy rack of any toy store.

Toy. Kind of like a spider man web type thing. No idea what they're actually called, but I had several as a kid

It's a cheapo sticky toy (compare the green one on the lower right). Don't worry, it wasn't in anyone's vagina.

Vending machine sticky toy. Don't eat it.

Ah... I would never have guessed, thank you!

Do a google image search for "stretchy ball yoyo" and you will see lots of other types.

Oh...maybe this is the actual product. Apparently they were banned in NJ.

That orange one looks exactly like it, mullacc, nice find!

Ah! That is a child's toy! It's all squished and destroyed though.

When I was a kid and got one of those, I clearly remember thinking "I shall never again be bored".

How can you be so sure of that?

Those come out of vending machines, for kids.

There is one that remains stuck to the ceiling of my cousin's bedroom that I threw up there in 1999.

It's a toy and I'm somehow charmed that you asked.
