My daughter is a girly girl so she was so excited for these! We had to go pick up our parcel at the post office of Shopper’s Drugmart. I knew it was the Kinder Eggs, but didn’t tell her so it would be a surprise. Well, we end up walking through the aisle with the display case and she was begging me to buy her a new Barbie one. It was too funny, knowing full well she would have some in a few minutes – but to see her excitement just at the display was priceless!
The new toys are awesome! In the Hot Wheels ones you get cars that you can decorate yourself – we didn’t actually open many since my daughter’s not that into cars. Giving those out to boy friends and nephews. For her it was all about Barbie – the toys were really cool. Lots of bracelets, and even some Barbie figurines. My kiddo jumped for joy at every single one.
I like that they kept it at 1 in 3 eggs having the themed toy – you still get the regular fun Kinder toys too. I know some people had concerns at putting a gender on the egg….but they didn’t – they put a theme on them. It’s up to your kid, and you as a parent which one you want them to have. I know my kiddo, and she’s Barbie all the way. If she was into cars we would get her the Hot Wheels ones. I really like that they make the choice obvious – the wrappers are tinted a bit so easy to identify them too. I know the boys we know wouldn’t be thrilled with getting a Barbie bracelet – like that I can treat them with a Kinder egg and know they will love the toy they get – either a car, or another cool regular Kinder toy.
What does everyone think of the new look and toys in the Kinder eggs? Does the gender thing bother you?
