    a pendant / appendage

    I'd like to know how you call the small "toys" - "pendants" that you can fasten to your keyrings, a zipper of a bad or something similar, in English.

    I mean the "pendants" that are sold in the streets and the money, that those who sell it, earn, is sent to, for example, handicapped children (charity etc.).

    How do you call the sellers? How do call the pendants? How do you call the situation itself?

    .
    One word for those small ornamental things is fob. A pendant usually goes round your neck.

    I suppose that they are volunteers peddling fobs, but there are no doubt other alternatives.

    Isn't the fob the ring on which things are attached? I just call them dangly things or ornaments.

    I'd call the dangling things charms.

    I'd call the sellers peddlers.

    You can see what I mean for example at this web site (in the pictures):
    http://www.399animeshop.com/anime/on...erchandise.php

    of course, these ones aren't probably sold in the streets , but they are the "toys" I meant actually.

    They call it "a keychain", as I can read there...
