Chocolate surprise egg with Monster High (Lola and her pet)
« on: March 13, 2016, 09:58:35 PM »
So I accidentally got on the wrong bus yesterday and found myself near the store I haven't visited for months. Decided to check the dolls section and found this:



It was quite expensive at around $1.25 but I couldn't resist  :blush: The chocolate itself wasn't good, but when I opened the egg I melted. Just look at this cute little thing compared to the official Sir Hoots A Lot.



When I got home my curiosity came over me and I went to a nearby store of the same chain. I got home with these:



I hoped that every egg would contain a toy because of the price, but I was wrong



I got a bit frustrated at first with those pendants, but now I think I will still allow myself an egg or two from time to time, because I just LOOOOOVE little things :biggrin:

That sir hoots-a-lot is so cute!
I have seen some like those around here, but they seem to have only mini versions of the doll, which aren't very good quality...

The mini charms could be necklaces/buckles for the dolls

I just now noticed, that there are also badges pictured to the right from pendants. So getting all the figurines might take quite a while.

What do you mean by the Abbey egg? The one with her picture? Do you need the egg itself or just the foil with picture?

Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

Squee, so cute! I'd love to see (and have!) the mini Crescent. That's a ton of different things in them though, especially when you're trying for something specific :ack:

I wish they would do something here, but in America kids are considered too stupid to not try and eat a plastic toy in a chocolate egg.  Yes, they are outlawed here.

If I ever saw those in person I would be hard pressed to stop myself buying all of them for the mini pets. So cute!

I was very surprised when I first heard of it.

That is sooo me! I loved those little toys much more than dolls when I was a kid. It gives me nostalgic vibes:)

Actually the law has nothing to do with the idea that kids might choke. The law came about because companies were adding dangerous additives to save money. This law was on the books decades before Kinder eggs were even invented. They are still illegal because it isn't "fair" that the government provide an exemption to one company. (Really it's the American candy companies that push against this because how can mediocre chocolate compare with better chocolate and a toy inside?)

I bought two more, but there were pendants with Lagoona and black scull. I'll be adding pics of what I get. I guess I'll want all the toys))) The dolls are so :yucky: and they make me want to try sculpting my own variants:)

Well next time you attempt to cross the border with some of these things, please be sure to ask the border guard the reason, cause he or she ain't going to tell you that, they are going to tell you it's a choking hazard for children and they will confiscate them.
Plus you mentioned decades, so I'm assuming you mean more then 1, and some of these things had been available in the states about 15 years ago, back when Osco was a thing.

Yes, the one with her picture, sorry  :blush: I'd pay for the egg with the foil on it, plus the pendant, but only if you are going to get more eggs, no need to go specifically for me!

(I'm a little bit strange in that I like collecting absolutely anything with her on it :abbey: )

EDIT: Now that I think about it, have these eggs been spotted anywhere else? I'm really surprised I've not seen MH eggs before this apart from bigger Easter eggs.

Admin Warning - This thread is not about the legalities of surprise eggs, about customs treatment of surprise eggs, and it's not about the choking hazard about surprise eggs. It's about surprise eggs with MH prizes inside. Keep it on-topic, if you want to argue do it in PM's. This will be the only warning on this thread.

Thank you

Lilith
