The Easter Bunny Rocks! March 25, 2010

I love Easter.  It’s usually close to my birthday, and has my favorite candy of all time: Peeps.  I know, I know, you can get Peeps all year round now basically, but the Halloween Peeps aren’t the same as the yellow chicken Peeps.  A real Peeps lover understands that.

I, excuse me, the Easter Bunny, has been picking up items here and there when they are on sale.  Aqua Sand, Moon Sand, Pixos, Princess Crazy Bands bracelets, Tinkerbell wings, pajamas, lots of stuff.  Toys R Us has had some buy one get one free sales, I had a really good coupon for The Disney Store, things just add up.  I’ve got stuff hidden under the bed just saving it.  The Bunny found some cool plastic eggs at Walmart of all places.  They look like cupcakes. And they aren’t the usual really cheap flimsy eggs you usually get either. These are a harder plastic that should hold up for a little longer than usual.  They will be great for playing tea party and in her kitchen.  Plastic Easter eggs tend to stick around for months of playing afterwards.  I’m still stepping on some from last year.  At least this way they’ll be cute and have a purpose.

The ultimate part of the Easter basket is usually the chocolate bunny.  Not this year.  This year the Bunny went all out.  When Mommy lived in Germany I got hooked on something called a Kinder Egg.  They are amazing.  The description on Wikipedia doesn’t do them justice.  Imagine a thin layer of milk chocolate delicately lined with white chocolate, and a cool toy hidden inside.  How much better can it get than that?  They are so delicate that they melt easily and can only be made during the colder months, even in Germany.  At least that’s what I was told by my German friends.  They aren’t sold in the US.  Something about the pieces of the toy being so small and a choking hazard.  Oh well.  There are still companies willing to ship them in.  Even better, at Christmas and Easter, they make something called Kinder Egg Maxi.  The regular eggs are only 2 1/2 inches, these bad boys are 7 1/2 inches tall and have an even bigger toy inside.  I ordered two, one for me, one for Paige.  Hey, if the Bunny can get one delivered from Canada, he better get two, cuz Mommy isn’t sharing!  They arrived in the mail today. I ordered from this site a few weeks ago.  I can’t wait to see what Paige says.  And I really can’t wait to dig into my egg to see if it’s as amazing as I remember.

Don’t worry, the Bunny didn’t forget Daddy.  I just can’t mention what Daddy is getting since he reads my blog.

    Angie, I never knew that you liked Peeps so much! I am soooo glad to know that, b/c they are one of my faves too…. Have been since I was little. Sounds like the Easter Bunny is going to be very good to the Toncreys this year. Have fun! :o)
