PostSubject: Ferrero - Natoons   Sun Apr 26, 2015 11:09 am

I think everyone knows Ferrero. It's an Italian company with lots of products. Maybe their most well-known product is Nutella. They're also known for Tic Tac and Kinder.
The product I'm going to talk about is Kinder Surprise, a part of Ferrero's Kinder series. Kinder Surprise, also known as Kinder Egg or Kinder Joy (original: Kinder Sorpresa; German: Kinder Überraschung), is a hollow chocolate egg with a plastic egg in the inside. In this egg there is a surprise: a little toy. There are uncountable amounts of series made through the years, from cars to jigsaws, from movie figures to.. Animals!

So there are lots of animal series made for the Kinder Surprise eggs, but in this topic I'm going to talk about one line of series: the Natoons. If I'm correct, there were 98 surprises made for the Natoons series. Some are hard plastic pieces you had to put together yourself, others are rubbery plastic and there was even one range with small paper balloons. Here I'll show you my favourite Natoons.

I understand why most people only collect realistic animal figurines, but these small ones are so lovely as well Very Happy And I like the variety of species!

I forgot to note that these aren't my photographs; it's from a site on which you can find all kinds of collections (not just animal figurines). But I do have quite a lot of them. I only ate one chocolate egg (the one with the DC006A crocodile), the others I got from flea markets and thrift stores. They're pretty easy to get here in the Netherlands Wink

Yesterday I was scrolling down eBay in search for lovely animal figurines which seem out of reach, when I came across two lovely Ferrero felines, which looked quite realistic for this children's company. When I searched for them on Catawiki, I found out that they're part of a new Natoons series, which was released only last year. Here they are:

* Dangerous Predators [2015]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Soft variations: Lion FS 022, Tiger FS 023


I think it's great that the Natoons series are now specializing on certain animal families - maybe this year canids? Smile I don't understand why Ferrero made soft variations of the lion and tiger only scratch But I prefer the 'normal' versions.

I'll let you know as soon as I find anything on their 2016 Natoons range!

P.S. Pictures not by me!

OMG those are wonderful! Shocked I do recognize some, which are shown in this topic as well. But these forest and desert figurines are just.. Fabulous! cheers I especially love the gray wolf, red fox (Roger!! Wink) and lynx! These certainly haven't been released here in the Netherlands Wink

Thank you very much for sharing, I really hope I'll come across these as well!

I just added these series to TAi. I still need to figure out Bojan's extra series, so these will be added later. I only added the 4 'realistic' series to TAi. Do you think I should add the 2012 Baby Arctic Animals and the 2013 Baby Animals to TAi as well or are these too cute/not realistic enough for TAi? And should I add 2011 Pluche Animals as well? Please let me know!

That's a hard question once it is hard to determine the border between what should be considered realistic and cute looking. Though, not wanting to be an authority on TAI, I think these other series are excessively cartoonish to be added. In my opinion, you listed the right ones. Very Happy

Thanks for your opinion, Roger! I thought the same about it, so I'll leave it like this (exept for Bojan's series I still have to add, of course!) Wink
