  • Top: A baby Surprise minnow in green crackleback and surface hardware, with glass eyes. This is the later version of this series, but the baby is the more rare of the group.
  • Upper middle right, is a "hole eye" Surprise minnow in rainbow with Neverfail hardware. There is no eye, but rather a hole for the appearance of an eye.
  • Lower middle right, a plain white Surprise minnow, again with hole eye and Neverfail hardware.
  • The Four brothers box a Surprises would have been sold in if it's Neverfail hardware.
