Choco Egg Series is a candy-toy product produced by Furuta
Japan. Furuta originally is a manufacturer for candy and chocolate and

shelves from store.

grown-ups in Japan due to the excellent details for their size. The
toys are the main reason for buying these products and not for the

chocolate (unless it is fresh like for a newly released series and you
are living in Japan) because you just don't know how long it has been
in storage and what the storage conditions are.
Most of the items
about only a few inches in length and are
