How about a hockey puck? Rubber ones may mar wood floors, but a plastic one
shouldn't. ANY sporting goods store would have them, and for your uses you
won't even have to freeze it. :-)

Somewhere in this house I have 1500 rubber balls that are 1
1/4 inch with a stem attached that are a half inch long by
3/8" across.   I suppose one could drill a hole right
through the stem.  I can't think why this would work better
than any other rubber ball but I have a whole lot of these
(don't ask) and have yet to find any productive use other
than giving handfulls to my kids (after which they get
tossed around, left on the floor, and thrown out.)

My other suggestion is to go to a second hand shop and get
the smallest kid sneeker you can find.  It will be very
