Kinder Surprise Egg A Day, Day 30

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

This is the last post in the series of Kinder Surprise egg.

This one was fun, it’s a little lock and key

When you turn the key in addition to opening the lock it releases a little panel on the back of the lock. The panel was too small to hold a coin so I figured it must be meant for secret notes.

Here are some stats on all of the Kinder Surprise eggs I opened. There were 34 total (one was a repeat, and three others were cars that I included in a single post and a few more were too poorly photographed to give their own post). I did not include the non-Kinder brand surprise eggs that I opened.

11 Girl themed toys total
4 Girl themed toys that were something to wear
11 Girl themed toys needing assembly
5 Girl themed toys with a brand tie-in
0 Girl themed toys that were educational

7 Boy themed toys total
7 Boy themed toys that were cars
7 Boy themed toys needing assembly
1 Boy themed toys with a brand tie-in
0 Boy themed toys that were educational

16 Non-gendered toys total
9 Non-gendered toys needing assembly
6 Non-gendered toys with a brand tie-in
5 Non-gendered toys that were educational

From the whole group:
8 Figurines total
5 Figurines with a brand tie-in
1 Repeat toy

All of the toys meant for boys were cars. The toys meant for girls required assembly and were the most likely to be clever or particularly charming. The toys that had an educational component only came from non gendered eggs. Overall I was impressed with the quality of the toys, I have to admit I was fearing that more of them would be brand tie-in figurines (collect them all!). I had a huge amount of fun doing this series!

    Thanks for sharing those, that was really fun. (Except now my daughter wants to go to Canada so that we can get some Kinder eggs :) )

    Greebly – I’m already planning a trip up north to bring back some Kinder toys — removed from the chocolate eggs of course. I like Kinder Surprise but not enough to risk a big fine.

    Like all good things at Christmas time, this too has come to an end. So much fun watching as you went along. Thanks for the effort in creating all the lovely posts. I’ll never forget your wee little toy that needed a wee little scarf because he looked cold!

    I loved this series! I was so excited every time it popped up in my reader.

    Thank you and thank you!

    It just occurred to me that the panel in the padlock also made it a locket! So awesome.

    I remember going to World Market a long time ago and finding them there. Don’t know if they still carry them….so you’ll have to check at the store. Peace and love =)

    What I’m dying to know is did you tote them home with you or toss them? And if you toted them home, are you displaying them somehow?

    Lis – I used to see them at a food imports store at Pike Place Market but when I asked they said that the government had been cracking down on sneaking them into an order.

    Sprizee – I kept the especially unique ones, the fairy girls, the odd weather predicting bear and the ornaments. I have them up on an office shelf with a few previous ones but I generally don’t keep them all that long.

    busybodies love raining on everyones parade… Perhaps at the Aldi ( german discount supermarket). They are after all german…Kinder means “children”. Meagan, you rock… love your crafty mind =)

    We’ve got an Aldi nearby that I’ve been meaning to get to, but I have little hope. I think the government monitors what is coming in :)
