I have posted many examples of the plastic toys found inside Zanai chocolate eggs. That company usually has a nice selection of Disney and Pixar characters. You can click the links to see posts featuring Frozen and Inside Out respectively. But this time I’m sharing some characters from Finding Dory that I found inside chocolate eggs from Kinder Surprise.
Once these were opened I found that I got three different characters and one double. Let’s begin the opening process:
Peel away the wrapper…
Expose the capsule inside…
Open the capsule and see who you got!
My first character was Bill, a minor character who is voiced by Pixar favorite and good luck charm, John Ratzenberger. He is a small but fairly pessimistic crab. Bill, not John.
Freed at last, and assembled
This toy has an added feature in that it has a little wheel under the crab’s tummy which, when turned, moves his claws.
The next character I released was Bailey who is a Beluga Whale and a resident of the Marine Life Institute. He was voiced by Ty Burrell.
Freed and swimming in one piece
This toy doesn’t move but it does have an interesting feature. If you dip Bailey’s head in water and push the button on his tummy, he will suck up the water.
Then when you push the button on his tummy, he will spray the water out… all over your best friend! Well, what are friends for?
The last character I freed from it’s chocolate holding tank was papa Marlin himself.
Nemo’s neurotic father, the un-funny clown fish, is voiced by Albert Brooks. As with Bill the crab, Marlin also has a movement feature:
Wheels, for the fish on the go!
When you wheel Marlin across a surface, he will turn slightly from side to side.
But the toys aren’t technically the only Kinder Surprise when you buy one of these great chocolate eggs. That was a hint:
Unlike the eggs from Zanai, which are just milk chocolate, the eggs from Kinder Surprise give you both milk and white chocolate. Have mercy!
So let’s put the three characters that I got together for a group photo:
Not too many smiles for some reason
The quality of the toys from Kinder Surprise are slightly better than those in most of the ones I’ve found from Zanai. But from a creative standpoint, both companies do a good job of giving kids a fun little keepsake.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some indulging to do!
