Top 10 BEST Toys for Kids series presents the KINDER EGG SURPRISE treats!
Kinder Surprise originated in 1974 in Italy as Kinder Sorpresa. The concept of introducing a toy in a chocolate seems to have originated in Argentina in 1962. Each Kinder Surprise egg consists of a chocolate shell, a plastic container, the contents of that container, and an external foil wrap.
In this top 10 best toys for kids video, we reveal the top ten surprises that are contained within the egg shell… How do we know this? Well, we collected ALL the toys together and asked 100 children what their favorite toy was. We added up the scores and now we can reveal the top 10 best Kinder Surprise toys!
Here they are:
In 10th position is a car and launch unit. Boys love the toy car inside the Kinder Surprise egg. The toy car is assembled together and then placed inside the launcher with a snap. Then, by pressing the button, the car will eject quickly and speed away! It is ranked number ten in our top 10 best toys for kids.
In 9th position for the top 10 best toys for kids is a blue POD BIKE. Again, this was overwhelmingly favored by boys. The toy pod bike just about fits into the Kinder Surprise egg because it is many small parts! Once assembled the pod bike looks very cool!
In 8th position for the top 10 best toys for kids are the Lion King characters, yes… the same ones from the film, the Lion King. No particular character was ranked above the other, but the series inside the Kinder Surprises is extremely popular. In this video, we feature Pumbaa who is the dull-witted Warthog!
In at number 7 is Kinder Joy in the form of Snoopy! Yes, our lovable white little dog with large black ears is one of our top 10 best toys for kids. Snoopy is a cartoon dog in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. He is Charlie Brown’s pet dog.
In 6th position is a creature loved by children the world over and definitely earns its rightful place inside the top 10 best toys for kids. DINOSAURS! Those creatures that walked our Earth millions of years ago and which has never been seen alive by any living human being is adored and revered by kids universally. Because we couldn’t list every dinosaur species, we thought we’d show you just one… Pterodactylus.
Really… a DINOSAUR inside a Kinder Surprise egg… what will they think of next?
Inside the top 5 now! In 5th position is STAR WARS! Kid’s really love to receive a Star Wars character inside their Kinder Surprise. That amazing film series by George Lucas sees many different alien character species. One of the more annoying of them is Jar Jar Binks. Not that Jar Jar made it into the top 10 best toys for kids, but we thought we’d use him to represent all the characters from Star Wars.
In 4th position is Thomas the Tank. Thomas is a tank engine, painted blue with red lining, and displays the running number one. All of the locomotives in The Railway Series were based on prototypical engines; Thomas has origins in the E2 Class designed by Lawson Billinton in 1913.
Thomas was created as part of the Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. We couldn’t find Thomas to feature in our video, so we used his number 2 instead.
Interestingly, In 2000, the parents of three children in the United Kingdom who died after choking on Thomas the Tank engine toys inside edible eggs campaigned for the products to be withdrawn from the European Union. Two children worldwide have died from choking on parts of the Kinder toy surprises a few days after they had eaten the chocolate egg.
3rd position has been secured by the girls! Disney Princess toys are the most popular item found in Kinder Surprises by girls alone.
2nd position of our top 10 best toys for kids goes to any Kinder Surprise with TWO different items or more inside. Two treats are better than one right?
And in pole position, the TOP, NUMBER ONE, best of all toy to be found inside a Kinder Surprise? SPIDERMAN!
