These large hollow chocolate eggs are rather expensive for candy but that's because each one contains within it an original Kinder egg to share with a little-one, but also comes with a big-boy toy like; a disassembled Stirling engine for your coffee mug, a Davinci helicopter replica, a crystal radio kit, or a miniature drone, or a diecast model, or a little trebuchet, or...

       Very wise. Is there a release version available yet ? Open source preferably, not a proprietary version like Trump 1.0 ...

It's a bit late for my something-new for the day... but I think that qualifies.
