High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Kinder Surprise (in the
original Italian, Kinder Sorpresa), also known as a Kinder Egg
(Kinder being the German word for "Children," as found in the
loanword "kindergarten"), is a confection manufactured by Italian
company Ferrero. Originally intended for children, it has the form
of a chocolate egg containing a small toy, often requiring
assembly. These eggs are banned in the USA due to a law prohibiting
"non-nutritive items" in food. Kinder Surprise originated in 1972.
The toys are designed by both inside designers and external
freelancers (for example the French artist Andre Roche based in
Munich) and manufactured by many companies worldwide, such as
Produzioni Editoriali Aprile, a small company based in Turin,
Italy, run and founded by two brothers, Ruggero and Valerio Aprile.
