Some years ago I found a little coin-operated toy dispenser that had mini rubber billiard balls in it. I got a cue ball and an 8 ball. The machine has since been taken away, and I was wondering if anybody on here knew where to find these types of balls? They are well made, very good for sleight of hand ball manipulations and flourishes and are approximately the same diameter as a U.S. silver dollar, or slightly less - I would guess closer to 28mm.

Thanks for your help!

Check Oriental Trading. They may have something like that.

I think you are speaking about small Super Balls. They are no where near that large. They are more like 7/8" in size. Silver Dollars are like 1-1/2", that is like a Billiard Ball.

Will these help?

Or here is a set of Gorilla Billiard Balls, size is 1-5/8" the shells are not as discribed, they are plastic and not covered in the same material, but you were not looking for shells anyway. They also have white on their store on ebay, same price.

The name Super Balls sounds familiar, but these are not that brand. I am not familiar with the English measurement system as yet, but if they make a line of complete billiard balls that size (7/8", which according to my conversion is about 22.2mm) and they can be purchased individually, that would be great. That size would be perfect as well.

I am looking for them to be billiard balls specifically because that is the theme of the routine.

Thanks for the help so far!

If you clicked on my reference you would have seen that the store I referenced sell the ball separately at $4.00 each.

Oh sorry, I just seen these are 45mm, sorry I thought they were smaller.

I think you should find a novelty sort that sells joke items, they may have the "Super Balls" you are looking for.

Those are exactly it! Different brand, but the exact same size as mine, which I measured earlier with calipers.

Gee, for a couple of shows I could give some of those away because they come 250 to a pack...not bad for even the full $32 price!

Thanks Michael!
