Egg Surprise by Zaini Now Available at Toys R Us

Egg Surprise chocolates by Zaini are finally available in the Philippines!  It took a while for these insanely addictive chocolates to be widely available in Manila, but they're now here - and at a very good price!  P199 gets you a pack of 3 eggs already.

Up until a few months ago, Zaini toy surprise eggs were only available from online sellers at around P400-P450 per pack of 3, which is really quite overpriced.  The closest you could get from regular stores back then were Kinder Joy eggs, which had yummy chocolates and small toys also, but the toys were either generic, or Hot Wheels/ Barbie.  Other co-branded egg surprise chocolates were not available.

For a limited time, selected supermarkets carried a different version of egg surprise candies with Disney Cars, Adventure Time and Barbie for only P40 a piece.  These eggs, made by Bon Bon Buddies, came in small plastic eggs with candies and a surprise toy.  The surprise toys though were not as good, and they come with hard candies, instead of chocolates.  The hard candies were, quite frankly, not good and kids didn't really enjoy them.  They seemed to be very limited too and we hardly see them in groceries lately.

Just a few weeks ago, Toys R Us started to display Zaini egg surprise chocolates in their stores.  These are the same eggs you see in most Egg Surprise opening videos from Disney Collector (Fun Toyz Collector) and Blu Toys.  They're usually co-branded and come with small replicas of the cartoon characters.  The chocolate cover that comes with it is pretty good too.  So far, we've seen only Spiderman, Disney Pixar Cars and Disney Frozen eggs on the shelves (we're assuming these are their most popular), but we're hoping to see more.  Their display also included Kinder Joy eggs, but these are the same kind commonly found in local supermarkets.  Still no Kinder Surprise so far though.





Do you have this toy? What do you think of it?

  1. Are they still available this time of the year? Or were they only featured because of the Easter season?

  2. They're available all year round :) The characters may change though depending on what's popular.
