If you are unfamiliar with these riveting clips you can check out one of his favourite channels here. Surprise eggs are anything like Kinder Surprises, Shopkins, Trash Packs etc.
I have seen these cinematic masterpieces run for over 20 minutes and people can open up to 250 eggs in one sitting, presenting each to the camera with an explanation of each part of their lucky find. Ari loves it all, down to the ‘candy’ and ‘flyer’.
There is a bit of controversy though as in the plight to create the longest and largest videos people cheat! They keep their empty eggs and just refill them with things they already have. Liars! We can tell!
See, I’m too involved. It really bothers me when they do that.
People also make elaborate eggs out of PlayDoh and hide figurines inside. These I can handle as some are really well done. Art!
He also watches toy reviews done by the same people. One woman (whose voice is so grating) puts voices on for a whole heap of stuffed trademarked toys and takes them for crazy joy rides in a Little Tikes car. Usually Cookie Monster is the driver and he obviously has added a little extra ingredient to the cookie dough that day. This woman has a partner as he appeared in a clip the other day. Smashed the whole back-story I had created in my head for her.
I have seen clips with views in the millions so my son cannot be the only child out there with this obsession.
Ari now presents his own egg openings for his Elmo. I also have many badly framed videos that he has produced with his own surprises.
It is amazing how two-year-olds can work an iPad.
This morning as soon as I rose from bed he was on. No breakfast in him. No breakfast in me. Not a great combo.
“Four surprise eggs!”
“Mum, find them!”
Way to early and his demands resulted in an about turn from me, returning to bed.
The problem with 2-year-olds is they don’t understand boundaries and he, and his demands, just come along too.
