List: Ten Easter basket stuffers that come packaged in an egg.

It's the time of year again when the weather gets a little warmer, we see some greenery break through the dirt, and we prepare for the arrival of Peter Cottontail.  Back in 2016, I shared this post on how to make an epic Easter basket.  Since I already shared with you all that high class and super confidential information, I figured we'd take it one step further this year.

An Easter basket is way more fun to unwrap when there are goodies packaged in eggs.  With blind bags especially those in an egg shape having become super trendy, I figured we'd put together a list!  This year we're I am taking the Easter basket to the next level with blind bag egg goodies for the family.  Here are my top ten favorite stuffed egg ideas to add to our Easter baskets.

Ten Easter basket stuffers packaged in eggs.


I'm going to start with my daughter's most recent toy obsession.  Per her, this is the "it" toy of the year and she would know.  These giant eggs are filled with a surprise animal stuffy.  Each stuffy has a unicorn horn and flip sequins that are hiding a secret message.  Additionally, these giant eggs are stuffed with a smaller egg containing a boo-boocorn, an egg shaped bag filled with Rainbocorn poop, and matching press on nails!
Can be found here.

For a reason that most adults can't fathom, kids LOVE Ryan's World.  That means your kid will probably love this severely overpriced giant mystery egg filled with junk in their Easter basket.  When your kids "hatch" their Ryan's World Mystery egg they'll find a surprise toy vehicle, 2 "ultra-rare" figures, 2 Build-a-Ryan figures, putty, a squishy, and stickers.
Can be found here.

These little eggs will break in half when opened.  One side of the egg is filled with a candy treat and the other side is a small toy.  Warning:  These toys are VERY tiny.  I would not recommend for little kids.
Can be found here.

This set comes with four dinosaur eggs that are ready to hatch!  For my son's Easter basket, I would take them out of the package so that he can find four separate eggs.  To hatch the eggs, simply place them in water.  The dinosaurs will grow and eventually burst out of the eggs in true dinosaur fashion.  You'll also find dinosaur facts and stickers in the set which you could totally stuff in a plastic egg as a teaser during the egg hunt!
Can be found here.

These eggs literally hatch themselves after you "love it" aka rub and hug the speckled egg.  Once hatched, you'll meet your new mystery friend.  This is yet another blind bag toy making it a trendy addition to any Easter basket.  The dolls are interactive meaning that they have special features such as learning and saying your name and learning how to walk.

This classic Easter basket stuffer is even from when I was a kid.  Play-Doh is one thing that never gets outdated!
Can be found here.

This gigantic egg may be a bit too big for your typical Easter basket, but I'm sure there's an easy fix for that as in get a bigger basket.  It advertises 12 surprises and then says it comes with 19 pieces, so the contents will be a surprise for everyone!   It can come with mystery versions of ooze, accessories, stickers, figures, dig surprise, plush, and a vehicle.  In hindsight, this seems like another blind bag hype that may not be worth the investment.

These eggs would be a super cool addition to an Easter basket because they're reasonably priced, come in a set of three, hatch half dragon half animal figures, come with trading cards, can be used in a real game, AND are opened by being smashed with or without your bare hands!  While they're another blind bag with a mystery toy inside, there are over 70 different ones to collect making it a lot less likely than the other toys listed here to have duplicates .

For our Easter in quarantine last year (link), I got this pack of 20 eggs stuffed with finger puppets.  Then we set up a bunch of games to play with our kids.  The winner got to pick an egg and then open it to see which finger puppet they got.  They LOVED this idea and they still play with the finger puppets.
Can be found here.

This is the perfect Easter basket stuffer because it comes with an egg that hatches a little baby chick.  The color of the chick is a surprise, but they're all interactive.  They hatch on their own and can hatch repeatedly, they hop around like a real chick, they'll chirp when patted, and they'll even sing a tune.  Do chickens really sing?  This specific set comes with a toy chicken coop and a handle.  As a mommy, I love this because it means organization!  It fits more than one chick, so there's opportunity here for more than one Easter basket stuffer!

What toys have you seen in an egg?

  1. Kinder Surprise was a huge hit here when I was a kid, I think I had like hundreds of toys from them, never ate any, but back in my days kids were not stupid as they are today. I mostly loved little Disney figurines in them - lil' Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy, and little Porsche cars... Nowadays they are as expensive as a whole 100g bar of chocolate or more.

    1. My daughter LOVES Kinder eggs, but I didn’t hear of them until about 4 years ago. Why are they so expensive by you? There’s barely any chocolate in them!

    2. Everything is usually more expensive in poor countries. No logic there, but companies usually put bigger prices in poorer than in richer countries. And the most ridiculous thing is that for that bigger price they usually give you goods with lower quality even though it is the very same name brand as in the West.

    3. I took a class last semester that dove into this a little bit. We focused on Uganda, but it's the same theory. The research I did said that businesses supply lower quality for higher pricing b/c they don't want the economy to stabilize for whatever reasons. In the case of Uganda, they learned to rely on "charities" to survive, but in reality, those "charities" are now big business with the founders getting rich off their "good deeds". Corruption is everywhere!

  2. Dez is cracking me up about kids today! My sister-in-law was living in the Netherlands when my kids were little, so she would send us Kinder Eggs, which we’d never heard of. The toys inside were primitive compared to today’s egg surprises, but very unique and fun. I’m making up some baskets for the grands, but it’s mostly clothes, books and cute toothbrushes. I’m planning on making some Easter cut out cookies, too.

  4. Gosh, I am so out of the loop on all of these toys. I don't think I've heard of a single one of them. Then again, my girls are 21 and 17, so we are long past the toy phase at Easter with them. Now, they just want Starbucks gift cards LOL
