So what are they, you ask?! 🤔

5 Surprise Mini Brands Mystery Capsules are filled with just that – the miniature version of brands that we all know and love! In fact, there’s over 100 to collect, including rare, gold ones to make the anticipation even more exciting! After each ball is unwrapped, they’ll spread out like a bunch of orange wedges – each one waiting to be opened!

Inside each one, you’ll find a miniature toy from popular brands like Mentos, Hostess, Pez, and more! Many of them even have personal care items from brands like Hawaiian Tropic, Dove, and shaving cream from Barbasol! Plus, if you’re lucky, one of your surprises might even be a mini shopping cart to tote around some of your new mini goodies! 😉

Whether your kiddo loves to play with Barbies, LOL Dolls, or just obsessed with unwrapping exciting surprises, these will make a unique addition to their imagination play.

Gifting some as a white elephant instead? How funny would it be to pull out some miniature gum the next time your friends ask for a piece? 😂 Or keep a mini can of Barbasol on the bathroom sink the next time your hubby goes to shave. Either way, the funny pranks could be endless!

    My kids still have a collection of the miniature version of toys like Mr. Potato Head, Lincoln Logs, Brite Lite, to name a few. I used to give them each one new toy every year we went out for Thanksgiving Dinner to keep them busy and they loved it.

  31. Elizabeth Kavan

    this would be PERFECT for American Girl Dolls!!!

  32. GLords

    I saw these on clearance at smiths market place for much less a couple months ago. None of my kids wanted them, but now thinkin they may have been cute elf on the shelf props
