I was walking through Sears the other day and happened upon a cashier corridor, a switch-back lane you have to travel down to reach the cash register. This is something stores use to entice you with impulse buys as the corridor is filled with low priced items you didn’t know you needed but now must have. At the entrance to this fast lane to poordom, I found two series of Viewing Eggs.
One set featured Marvel comic characters, and the other featured Disney films. They were on sale for only $1.00 each, so I just had to splurge and buy them… impulsively.
But wait, you say! What in the world are Viewing Eggs? Behold:
Finding Dory & Cars 3
There was also one Viewing Egg left that featured the Disney movie, Frozen. I didn’t pick it up for two good reasons: 1) I hate the movie. 2) It was missing the outer wrapper.
These Viewing Eggs work much like any other toy viewer. You look through a hole in one side, hold the egg towards a strong light source, and push the top button to toggle around the images. In this case, there are twelve to see.
But there is still more to enjoy here! These viewers also give you candy and a sticker.
The Surprise is Underneath
A small package of jelly beans and one themed sticker:
It was all but impossible to get clear shots of the scenes inside the eggs, but I did my best with the Cars 3 version:
Trust me, the scenes look better when using the naked eye! But I hope you get the general idea. The Cars 3 had a more graphic look to the images while the Finding Dory images where more like screen-captures from the movie.
Like me, do you like finding strange and wonderful things in unexpected places?
