Dumb It Down Kinder

YOU MAY QUESTION why a 29 year old man would post a picture of an instructional insert from a Kinder egg. You might even think it was bought for someone else – a bit younger perhaps. Well…no. I bought it and the chocolate was great thank you. The toy however, was disappointing and on reflection far too simple and a symbol of the generational shift from between when I was a kid and those who are kids now. To put this together, you have to join two parts of either end of a platypus together. It’s not like this is a challenge even for a three year old. The fact the toys are so dumbed down was the only surprise I found. I don’t care if a few kids didn’t make it because they choked on the once small and multiple parts that used to be a standard decades ago- that’s natural selection, they should have put it together not in their mouths. If they managed to do it in their mouths and then choked – well – that’s highly unfortunate.
