In cases of greatest emergency, a P & L elf can use his sparkle, in its concentrated form. Sparkle can send any creature into a deep sleep, which usually lasts an hour, depending on the weight of the victim. The sparkle is contained in what appears to be a Christmas globe ornament, complete with hook. When the hook is twisted and removed, however, the sparkle within is activated.
It is imperative for the elf to throw the Sparkle Bomb within three seconds of activating it, as the sparkle begins to immediately dissolve the exterior of the ornament. A properly timed throw will strike its target at the exact moment the shell completely dissolves, allowing the sparkle to hit with maximum effect.
