    I guess this is kind of unusual, it's a tin Dashie filled with marsh @Mallow s (or Rarity surrounded by her pink OC sisters :p)

    £1.49 from Home Bargains

    Obviously I use the word "filled" loosely (it's good ol' BBB who make the cheap advent calendars and eggs). But worth it as a container!
     
  2. Awesome! Was tagging me in this intentional? :p

    Whether one likes Hobby Lobby or not (I dunno, seems everyone got on a political soapbox when I submitted those metal posters to Equestria Daily, personally I don't boycott or shop at places for political reasons, I go for the ponies. :3), they tend to be fun for odd Pony stuff. Check it out, a Rainbow Dash canvas! :3 I bought it being on sale half price and it's now hanging in my room.

    American shop. Think they came out as anti-same-sex-marriage or just anti-LGBT+ in general, caused a bit of a fuss. Not 100% certain on the details, I lose track of all those things TBH.

    Spin-brushes. Found these by accident since I need to replace my toothbrush. Interesting part, it actually the first time I've seen a non-toddler toothbrush (to be fair, that is an unfair size as the target audience of girls includes kid-age too).

    Now onto a more serious question, why is Colgate not used for these? C'mon Hasbro, marketing 101! :p

    Nothing particularly exciting - the text under the Chupa Chups logo translates to 'milk chocolate' (molochn'i schokolad) and the bit in the middle translates to "chocolate ball with surprise" ('schokoladn'i shar s syurprizom' - I did wonder if it meant 'chocolate egg' but the Russian word for egg is totally different)

    The bit on the top right of the box means "New Collection" (novoya kollektsiya)

    To a first approximation - my knowledge of Russian is a bit rusty.

    Yeah, I'd have thought so.
    Although there's apparently a new wave of Kinder eggs with ponies-themed surprises within, presumably as some kind of tie-in with EG - see: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2015/05/kinder-surprise-egg-pony-toys-on-way.html

    Not actually seen any, but then they're not the sort of thing I go looking for anyway (diabetes precludes such sweet treats, at least in the quantities required to collect all 8 figures)
