Thank you for all the great Tiny Jelly Bean captions! We’ll choose a winner later today, so if you haven’t left yours yet, there’s still time.
Yesterday’s big Easter candy event for me was the unwrapping of this jumbo Kinder Egg that I had saved from my trip to Berlin. Look how big it is!
If you’re not familiar with Kinder Eggs, they are delightful hollow chocolate eggs that are available in a many countries. But they aren’t sold in the US because they contain a toy inside that often is made of many tiny pieces to assemble. It’s the complex toys, often with moving parts, that make Kinder Eggs so cool.
But not all Kinder Eggs are created equal! The ones from Germany are definitely made of the best chocolate and contain the coolest toys. I had never seen one so big, so I was excited to bring this one back from my trip. Now let’s see what’s inside!
It’s a really big capsule egg! Somehow I didn’t expect it to be this big.
And inside… many little parts! That’s always a good sign.
I love how clear the assembly instructions always are.
And here is the assembled toy. The rubber band at the bottom that lets you wind up Mr. Froggie so he can boat around in the sink.
My husband tried it and it works! The chocolate was delicious too.
