Can I use a Mystical 8 Ball?

My son “won” a “Mystical 8 Ball” at a theme park which I wanted to ask a question about as my wife and I disagreed on whether it was a “major” deal or not. The idea is that you ask it a question, shake it, and it tells you “yes” or “no” etc……my thoughts were this was not something I wanted in our house while my wife thought that the kids knew it was not “real” and that it was not a big deal. Can you give us some insight?

Thank you.
