Miniature Kinders and other Kinder projects for dollhouses, roomboxes and dioramas


Kinder is a trademark for chocolate made in Germany. Their most famous product is surprise eggs. Some of the surprises can be used in mini projects - e.g. metallic statues, wooden toys and plastic houses. Repainting and redoing them does wonders.


So many Kinders for me :D

Dear, Johanntii - Sorry, but kinder is a german trademark :) kinder is the german word for children und so the chocolate is namend children chocolate. Also the magic surprise eggs are german!! Funny you wrote this thread here, because i often use kinder stuff for my Lundby houses and thought about writing a post about all the tiny treasure. I also posted a picture at flickr today with some Lundby dolls and 2 brass figures from surprise eggs :D - i´ll put it into the minitreasure group and maybe you like to use it here?

Hugs, Nicola

Dear Johanna, the trademark may be German, but I can understand the confusion. I grew up in an Italian neighborhood (being Italian, of course!) and at Easter all the chocolate eggs had small toys in them. The Italians are crazy about it and it is very popular there and, of course, remember getting them as a child (that was a long, long time ago).Unfortunately, these items are hard to get anymore because of new laws prohibiting small items in toys due to safety concerns...

Dear Mary, I guess the idea was maybe an italian idea ;D and a smart german took it and made something special and magic with it... and because small items in toys due to safety concerns, they put a very loooooong paper into the small egg saying: not for children under 3 years because small parts could be swallowed, written in each language you can imagine!

We still have them here in germany and will sure have some of these in our easter nests :D

Happy (magic-) Easter, Nicola
