5 Surprise Mini Brands! Series 2
What It Is

Which five surprises will you uncover in the new 5 Surprise Mini Brands Series 2 balls? Each golden ball unpeels to reveal five mystery grocery store-themed mini toys. Each "slice" of the ball hides one Mini Brand toy. There are more than 130 to collect! Most of the mini toys are common, such as a pretend bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup and a tiny box of McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract. You might also find grocery store accessories, such as a checkout scanner. But you might also find metallic, glow in the dark, or rare golden Mini Brands. The collector's guide helps you keep track.

Is It Fun?

These are so cute, and kids will have fun finding some of their favorite mini foods, such as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese or Bagel Bites. Some of the food brands might not be familiar to kids (as adults, we had no idea what Port Salut cheese was), but the surprise unboxing will still be fun, and kids will like building out their own mini grocery store. (Especially if they haven't been inside a grocery store for the past year due to COVID-19.) We can see these being fun for display or for playing out shopping adventures with dolls and action figures.

Who It’s For

5 Surprise Mini Brands is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Just to be clear, these are all pretend versions of popular food brands. Nothing has real food in it.
