How do shocking toys work?

I want to know how do those Chinese shock toys work, I know they have a small 3-pin flyback transformer so im assuming the circuit works in a similar way to a car ignition coil but there’s also a very very small COB chip that I can assume its a simple oscillator to generate AC to drive the transformer (200 hz). The transformer has an extremely thin secondary side and also has 2 output wires that are short circuited with the battery ground when someone grabs the terminals.

Ask somebody who works in the Chinese toy industry, if anybody actually does work in that industry any longer.
