|Egg Surprise Manila, Philippines : Adventure Time, Toy Surprise at Metro Supermarket|
Egg Surprise videos are a huge hit with kids these days. They spend hours and hours a day watching endless plastic eggs being unwrapped with small toy surprises inside. As some put it, it's like Christmas everyday for kids as they anticipate finding out what's inside these eggs. Popular YouTube channels include Fun Toyz Collector (formerly, DC Collector and Disney Collector) and Blu Collection.
Last week, I happened to be in Market! Market! and decided to check out Metro Supermarket. Lo and behold, there was a rack at the corner with surprise eggs! Available characters were Disney Pixar Cars, Disney Princess and Adventure Time. The surprise eggs are made by Bon Bon Buddies, and they cost P 40 each, and comes with the plastic egg container, a pack of small candies, a surprise toy, and a few stickers. The toys are small plastic ones that look and feel real cheap (like whistles, pendants and the sort), they're the "party-favors" type of toys that usually cost P5 - P10 each, but for kids, it's all about the anticipation and unwrapping of the plastic eggs.
