Kinder Surprise Egg A Day, Day 19

While I was in the UK I got my Kinder Surprise fix by opening an egg a day.

I found this not-Kinder Surprise egg at a train station in Brussels. The writing in the box was in Dutch but it clearly said figurines so I only bought one.

It’s a very cute egg, one half is in white chocolate and other other in dark chocolate. Each half had stars in the chocolate. This chocolate was ok, a little softer and less salty than the Kinder Surprise chocolate, but still not great quality.

The capsule was a little bigger than the Kinder capsules.

It’s a figurine all right.

Cute, it’s got a little base to stand in. The little sheet of paper that came with it indicates there is a whole set. I’m assuming these are all from a cartoon or toy set that I am not familiar with.

    That’s Maya the Bee, a character from a German comic.

    That is from a german book and television series(japanese) I remember fondly as a kid: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biene_Maja.
    I used to love watching it and can still sing the theme…

    This is Biene Maja, a little bee that gets into all kinds of trouble with her best friend Willi. These cartoons are very famous in Germany (and I guess other western European countries as well ;-)). You can look it up on youtube. The intro song is awesome!

    I grew up in Mexico watching “La abejita Maya”!

    I grew up in Croatia and we also had the cartoon and the storybooks with different adventures of “Pčelica Maja”. Oh, the fond memories…

    This cartoon (Maya the bee) plays in Australia too :-)

    I grew up in Chile and La Abeja Maya was one of my favorite television shows and comic magazines.

    I was a small kid in Poland and I loved this character – she is Pszczółka Maya!

    She used to be on Nickelodeon in the ’80s or early 90s; I remember my little brother watching her.

    Now I’m wondering if the bee guy on the Simpsons is meant to be a direct reference to Maya the Bee. I love that so many of you have shared her name in different languages.
