Imbued with ancient magic, this festive trap is in a constant state of charging as it awaits a mouse to enter its blast radius. This festive trap is a sure-fire way to bring a little cheer to the more gloomy areas of the Kingdom!

This trap's innocent toy appearance seems to renew the long lost playful demeanor of Lich mice in Balack's Cove, distracting them enough to occasionally have them surrender twice the loot when captured.
