I have followed Eric over at Toyriffic for a long time now. I could even credit him with being the first toy blog that piqued my interest. He is big into mini figures of LEGO and these gems of the Fisher Price Imaginext series. They could often be taken for little kids toys as the danger level on them is almost nil. However, when people started to point out the "adult" board room aspect of these, I started to fall in love with the blind bags.
I found these oddities in the aisle of my local Walmart near the checkout lanes. Foil wrapped candy in today's world is a rarity and for some reason, their cartoony demeanor grabbed my attention. They were big, seemed hollow and brought upon a feeling of 1997 to me. Only one product has done the same; Nestle's Wonderball.
