What toy is this?
« on: January 29, 2015, 11:59:16 PM »
Hi all. I hope I came to the right place.

I found a video of some kids opening up these ... toys(?) or things that have toys in them.

I've never seen them before. I'm in the U.S., so is this something from overseas? And can you get them here?

You can't get Kinder Surprise in the US--the FDA has decreed that they are unsafe as food products.

You could get them in Canada, or everywhere else, but people get in a disproportionate amount of trouble for getting caught smuggling them in.

I assume without the chocolate it will be less troublesome to import them? There is quite a big collectors' market for the toys that come with Kinder surprise eggs. Hundreds or more ebay sellers, I guess at least some of them will ship internationally. Try terms like "‹-Ei", "‹ Ei" or "‹ei" (short for "‹berraschungs-Ei", literally "surprise egg"). :)
