2nd Time Lucky – another (and much better) lot of Hot Wheels Kinder Surprises!

Musings By Joschik
Christian obsesses over collectibles, antiques and toys more than the average person, but (he believes) in a productive way. Documenting collectibles has been a passion since working on a book about his favorite childhood toys from Timpo 42 years ago.



I wrote a few months ago how disappointed I was with the first Hot Wheels in Kinder Surprise clone.

But being the ever-optimist when I saw them again I bought 3 of them, these were branded Finders Keepers.  And while the last mislead with the packaging I was secretly hoping that this time I get what’s on the tin (OK, cardboard).  And I particularly wanted that Boneshaker!

And here they are!


These are very different from what I was used to, having lots and lots of Kinder Eggs as a child in Germany – with the wrapped chocolate lying next to the surprise versus the surprise being inside the chocolate egg…


The chocolate?  So so…


But check that one out, first item is an instant hit!


I got the Twin Mill and the D-Muscle and thought they all looked great!  And the Finders Keepers website even had a checklist!


I thought of getting more and trying for the Rare Super Van but they are sold out and the 2nd Series is nothing like them.  So will have to add them to my hobbyDB Wish List and just wait.  You can find all 10 of them on hobbyDB here.
