Buying a Kinder surprise chocolate egg is always a lottery, you don't know in advance which toy will be inside. Oftentimes, the content does not live up to expectations, and this can be frustrating for a child and an adult too. In an attempt to unravel the mystery of Kinder Surprise, resourceful citizens have developed several ways to at least roughly understand what is hidden inside the egg.
The look of the wrapper gives an idea of the series. The foil can contain Disney princesses, Masha and the Bear, Kitty and other characters. By purchasing an egg with a matching wrapper, there is a chance to get a figurine from the main collection.
But, alas, often not what we would like to come across. Therefore, when choosing an egg, you can use the following tricks.
Check the egg for weight. The method works, but without instruments it is difficult to determine the exact weight of the egg, because toys in Kinder surprise differ by only a couple of grams. Lucky for those who have scales with a scale of up to tenths of a gram. You can come with them to the store and weigh the eggs. Most often, Kinder surprises weighing more than 30 g contain a collectible figure, and lighter ones - puzzles or a construction set.
A fairly accurate way to determine what's inside the egg is to shake it and listen to the sound. Solid figures make almost no sound. Usually they are pressed tightly with paper sheets against the walls of a plastic container inside the egg. The designers will have a dull sound.
Probably the most reliable way to identify the contents of a Kinder Surprise is to read the markings. On the wrapping foil on the back of the egg, next to the production date, a code is put - a combination of letters and numbers. Usually two letters mean that there is a collectible toy hidden inside. For example, the code "HK" ensures that you come across a toy from the "Hello Kitty" series. The three-letter marking means that the egg contains a construction set or other toys that are not included in this series.
Practice shows that the last method of solving the Kinder surprise mystery does not always work, so for an accurate hit you need to use all kinds of tricks.
