I am one of those eternal, materialistic children that still loves getting an Easter basket. My mother used to put together the most amazing, fun little Easter baskets that it was like having a second Christmas. There was nothing big or stupendous or expensive, but she has always had a keen sense of fun and would put the most nifty items in the ones I received all my life.
So, I made a little Target and Five Below trip and assembled a few things I love, and only one thing was over four dollars(the basket). Let’s take a look! (click on the pics for descriptions)
My little Easter basket! The basket itself is a mermaid tail!
A smiling plush turtle peeks out. Hanging on the side is an octopus figure by Terra.
This turtle is just so sweet and fits right in the palm of your hand.
What? Don’t you get an octopus for Easter?
I think this must have invisible ink in it.
Better shot of the mermaid tail basket. Isn’t it cool?
I decided to try out something Hatchimals-related and got a blind-packed egg.
Well, actually everything Hatchimals is blind-packed. Let’s see what i got!
Looks like a little birdie thingy.
A sort of pink penguiny thing! I think I’ll pass out bubble gum cigars!
Kinder Joy eggs. These are GREAT all around and are only a dollar.
When you snap a Kinder Joy egg in half, you have the candy side(gold foil) and the toy side.
Here is the candy, and I quote: “it is a delicious treat made of two soft cream layers – one sweet milk-cream flavored and one cocoa flavored. Nestled into the creamy layers are two round, chocolate-covered wafer bites that are filled with sweet cocoa cream, to be eaten with the included spoon.”
Here is da spoon.
On the toy side you get a small, usually very intricately made toy that you have to put together.
Both of mine are robots!
The instructions are always with pictures only so that they can be understood by any language. They are also adorable.
Here they are fully assembled.
