What would be in your Mystery Grab Bag?

This seemed to be a thing back in the day. Mine would have - a small piece of string, a badge of some kind, a cut out , a tiny wee pig, a magic ring, the vanishing nose trick, half a Spondoolick, a whirling stodge, chalky ciggies, half a button, collectors card of Mr. Turnip, a list of friends, a pulling face, plastic pips, a sailor's woggle, a knitted thingy, an ATC , a broken tie pin, a novelty eraser, tatto of some stilts, tiny scissors, etc etc.

But then it wouldn't be much of a surprise would it!

Hi Maxima. Not really sure but a boy scouts woggle is a small leather loop that holds their scarf/neckerchief? in place so imagine a sailors woggle would something similar.

What is a sailor’s woggle? (Is it safe to ask?)
