My Toyologist Review Entry.

Divine Chocolate Dubble Easter Egg Hunt Kit Review


We were lucky enough to be sent a  Divine Chocolate Dubble Easter Egg Hunt Kit to review for the lovely Izziwizzi Kids.It truly has been one of our most fun reviews yet.We were very good and waited until Easter Sunday itself before we set it up,Lily was one very excited little girl,I can tell you. The Divine Chocolate Easter Egg Hunt kit consisted of 6 Milk Chocolate hollow eggs wrapped in shiny coloured foil and a set of fun direction cards to cut out for the hunt.2 x Shiny Blue,2 x Sparkling Red and 2 x Golden Gold,all of which were very attractive to the eye and being shiny made them easier to find.
We were having a family dinner over at Lily's Great Grans to celebrate Easter and all the family was there so this really was a whole family game.The sun was shining and the weather was gorgeous,perfect for an afternoon of good old outdoor fun. We hid the eggs in her beautiful garden and placed the signs ready for the hunt.We hid them in easy places for Lily as she's only 4.In trees and behind flowers.On toad stools and under the bird table. The hunt was set and almost ready to start.

With a very excited Lily and a naughty Daddy and Uncle Ian ready at the starting point we blew a whistle and off they went.You'd think the men would have grown out of Easter Egg hunts by now but no chance they were running around the garden like lunatics trying to find and steal all Lily's eggs.Lily was a little sweetie,wondering around the garden with a Sieve to put her eggs in,lol Don't ask,she didn't want a basket,she wanted to use her cooking sieve! She's such a little madame but very cute so we let her off. The hunt only lasted a few minutes in the end as all the eggs were found quickly but the fun was well worth it.It was so funny to see them running around like little kids,falling over each other in the scramble to get to the eggs first.Lily had a blast,she really enjoyed this game and wanted to play again straight after. She didn't want to eat the eggs,she replied "Mummy Can you hide them again please?" I'm afraid I didn't though as bad daddy and uncle Ian had already un wrapped theirs,tut tut. Lily unwrapped a pretty red wrapped egg and bit off the top. The chocolate was Milk but quite plain,it wasn't creamy like most chocolate but Lily didn't mind.I wasn't too keen on it myself,one bite was enough.I prefer chocolate with more milk or cream in.It seemed very adult like for a children's egg or like the cheaper chocolate you can buy from the shops even though it wasn't.

Over all we loved the whole Easter Egg Hunt experience as it was good clean family fun,apart from the taste of the chocolate which I found a little disappointing but Lily liked and ate it anyway so the set was a hit. We had so much fun that we would deffinatley do another Egg hunt next year but i think we may be using a different brand of chocolate eggs.

I put together a collage of all the pics I took on our lovely hunt for you to see,There was a copy at the top but i love it so much that I'm going to share it again once more for a closer look.

Princess Lily gave this review a huge thumbs up but when it comes to chocolate she would every time! I gave the Hunt kit itself a 4/5 but had to score the chocolate itself only 2/5 as the taste wasn't quite yummy enough.

  1. Sounds and looks like great fun. We too had an Easter Treasure Hunt, we put a few toys and books in to find, so the boy and myself didn't have too much chocolate. Like naughty Daddy and Uncle Ian, I too had the most fun. Karen Incy Wincy Party

  2. No, sadly or maybe happily, I would NOT think they'd have grown out of it! [sings] ...kids from one to ninety-two...

  6. Sounds brilliant fun. J & I did an Easter thing at school and they had an Easter Egg hunt. J loved it. I don't have that much confidence in organising stuff like this but after reading this will give it a try. Am planning an Unbirthday Party for J in the Summer Holidays so and Easter Egg hunt sound like a plan

  7. Looks like much fun was had by all! A shame the choc wasn't quite up to scratch, but the main thing was that everyone had fun... which they clearly did!
