Need something to stick in your kid's Stocking this Christmas? Tired of rummaging through the malls looking for just the right gadget or gizmo? Well, you need not look any further than your local コンビニ (Conbini or Convenience Store).
Choco Eggs are back and, though it may be hard to believe, there is a Frozen connection! You can get Anna or Olaf (I think Elsa was in the last batch of eggs.) I got Anna.
As usual, there are variants to the above. In the photo above, Mickey and Minnie are in colour. I received a vintage Black and White Minnie whereas a fellow collector nabbed a B/W Mickey.
If your kid isn't loopy on the chocolate yet, get him a can of coffee. There are four of these Chuggington trains to collect with a can of Wonda. I'd never heard of Chuggington before. Here's a sample.
From L to R, it's Hanzo, Koko, Wilson and Bruster (I'm not certain of the spelling here, I took the names from the katakana.)
You may want to keep the coffee for yourself and not hop up your kid on caffeine, but if you're at all sadistic (like me), you may want to get your waif loopy on Attack on Titan Energy Drinks! Amino 5000! and unlike most energy drinks, these ones taste pretty good.
You can't get these at a Conbini, but I snagged a couple of Mickey's friends at a UFO Catcher today. In addition to Mickey, Minnie and Pooh-san, you can get Donald or Marie (from Aristrocats).
Now's the time to avert your eyes if you DON"T want the Secret egg revealed...
