Can someone give me some info on Yowies, I've seen quite a few on eBay, but I'd like to know where they came from, are they still being made and are some of the figurines rare?

I know that:
the Uk Yowies came in 2 series and were sold with chocolate figurines
the chocolate tasted bad(many people say that)and they weren't very cheap
they are no longer produced

the Australian Yowies were not solid, rather puzzles
they came with chocolate too, but there were many many series and some are very rare

Hope this helps!

Yep, they were monster like shaped chocolate made by Cadbury. The chocolate was terrible !!!

The little yowies were in a plastic case, a bit like Kinder egg toys, and came with a little list of other yowies to collect.
The first series had 50 models. I have 40 and am still looking for the other 10.

The "monsters" were also available in model form, I believe there were 5 or 6 of them, and they were also pencil toppers or pencil grabbers. I have three of these but they are funny looking things Laughing

I look forward to seeing your models :)

They are adorable !
I'm guessing that they are either the second series or a different one. I haven't seen any of those ones before :)

I was agreeing with the fact that Steve is a very kind person! Razz
I wish I could get the complete series from UK Yowies, but there are so many priorities it is very hard to fall for the temptation! Rolling Eyes

I have lots of Australian Yowies (Season 2-4) for exchange. If you have an extra, I'd be interested in the monarch butterfly! Please email me for fastest response (not private message).
