PostSubject: Kaiyodo Furuta Chocoegg 5 in the Netherlands   Sun Sep 20, 2015 9:43 pm

Yesterday I decided to visit Haarlem (the Netherlands). There's a toy shop I wanted to visit because I heard they sell CollectA. When I arrived there, I was a little bit disappointed: they did sell CollectA, but not so many different figurines, and there were no interesting species for me. So I didn't go home with CollectA. But furthermore, it was a lovely shop with all sorts of other nice things. I walked around and when I finished my investigation at the cash desk, I saw them: lovely blue plastic surprise eggs hanging on a cartboard. I recognized them immediately: Kaiyodo. And I was like: WAIT WHAT?!?!?!? Shocked affraid bounce

So seriously, that shop is selling the Kaiyodo Furuta Chocoegg 5 series. In the Netherlands. I wouldn't dare dreaming of a day I would find Kaiyodo in the Netherlands.

The funny/strange thing is that they're not selling it as Kaiyodo, but the figurines definitely are (all figurines are marked with Kaiyodo). They're actually sold as Pod Pets. I wanted to buy them all, but I'm a bit short on money (end of the month is coming near), so I only got three. But they were sold like this:

Every figurine comes with its original booklet, where you can see all the figurines of the series. I got the Moon Jellyfish, Carolina Anole and Spotted Nutcracker (I was lucky enough to receive the dugong by trade the week before!).

Wow, Kaiyodos to buy in shop in Haarlem? That's quite incredible indeed! You're lucky! Congratulations Julie! cheers

And, haha, I was in Ijmuiden yesterday, about 5km from Haarlem, if I knew they have Kaiyodos there I would go shopping Razz Wink

There's a Portuguese quote that litterally translated says:
- "Luck protects the daring ones") - I think the English equivalent is "Who dares wins".
You deserve all the luck and in my opinion it is not exactly luck but merit, virtue or something like that. cheers
There's a pika and a shrew in that series, two animals that I'd love to get in solide built. Very Happy
